This one looks great! Make me thinking to ancient sierra games. I'm really tempted!

Edit : sold! Too beautiful to resist

Reminds me of Broken Sword: The Director's Cut. And anything that resembles that game is definitely worth checking out! Can't wait to visit those stunning locations and dive into this story.

Love the look of this and love classic adventure gaming! At $1.99 for complete game with no IAP from a notable adventure games dev and I am sold! While I never really got into Secret Files as much as I would have liked, they had some good things going in that series and I always want to play more Arthurian legend themed stuff so I am diving into this. Imps when I have the chance

This certainly looks promising, and I have one question before hitting that buy button.

Is this a pure, point and tap adventure, or does it contain action sequences that are difficult to complete? I am not a fan of arcade sequences in adventure games, so any decision to buy will be based on that.

Well after watching the trailer on iTunes, it doesn't seem quite like Broken Sword. You switch from 3rd person sequences to 1st person object interaction. I'd be interested in seeing a longer gameplay vid before giving it a try myself.

Another concern is that some of the reviews on the App Store mention that it is very short.

I am also still wondering if frustrating action sequences are present, or if this is a pure point and tap adventure game.

Amended, after reading the reviews again, saying that action sequences are indeed present. I think that I will pass.

The action sequences so far have been very easy. The puzzles, too. I'm not too far in, though, so I hope it gets more challenging.
