Default Broken Sword 5 - the Serpent's Curse - by Revolution

https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/broken-sword-5-serpents-curse/id720656825?mt=8

Sanuku, if you want to fix this up, I don't know how to make an NZ thread like you. Although I might be able to get some of the screenshots.

Price is $6.49 in New Zealand.

Episode 1 - Paris in the spring

Shots ring out from a gallery… a robbery… a murder… and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure.

From multi-award winning Revolution comes the latest mystery in this much loved adventure-puzzle series. Playing as intrepid American George Stobbart and sassy French journalist Nico Collard, you find yourself on the trail of a stolen painting – and a murderous conspiracy. A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word...

Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humor - can George and Nico save mankind from disaster? Can you solve the secret of the Serpent’s Curse? A curse some say was forged by the Devil himself...

• The latest in the smash hit multi-million selling Broken Sword series
• Gripping story, engaging puzzles, voiced by a top quality cast
• Highly acclaimed 'slide and tap' interface – simple but hugely powerful
• Context-sensitive help system – access hints to solve even the hardest puzzles
• Full Game Center integration – including in-game achievements

Full English / German / French speech with option for subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian.

The concluding part, Episode 2, will be available shortly as an In-App Purchase.

Love these games!

It's a shame some of the others never came to ipad.

Definitely day 1 for me. Any ideas how long before the IAP with the concluding part?

Yeah. Planning to get this and Final Fantasy VI. Hopefully the $25 card I already have is enough for both.

Metacritic's score is above average:
http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/br...serpents-curse

But I think the hardcore Broken Sword fans were disappointed by it.

I've been waiting for this for a long time, but my, that file size is huge, and this is only part 1 of 2.

I need to clear space on my device before hitting that buy button

Best release tonight for me, apart from FFVI that is. Been a big fan of this series from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed this one when I played it on the PC.

If you're a fan of point & click games, I'd highly recommend this one.
