Broken Sword: Directors Cut $3.99->.99

When Broken Mirror went to a dollar the next week they set it to free. Not sure about this price drop because of that:

This price drop is most likely due to the fact that they just made this a universal app, so the HD version is probably no longer supported.

Beat this quite some time ago. Loved every bit of it. Quite challenging at times, but that's most good adventure games. The story is also first class.

Bought. I have been eying this for a while and I used to love the old Sierra adventure games. Thanks OP

This new universal app is 200mb smaller than the old HD version. Wonder how they managed that.

So is this the version to get for iPad instead of the HD version?
Nevermind. Seems I can't buy the HD version in USA even if I wanted to.

Yes, the HD version has been discontinued. If you already own it, it still works and nothing has changed. The game is complete and stand-alone and totally playable as is. If you're new to the series, then this universal one is the only one you can buy now.

Thank you for screwing the HD owners, now I'd have to buy this again ?
