App description: Broken Sword the Smoking Mirror: Remastered sees the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard in the sequel to the App Store #1 smash hit Broken Sword the Shadow of the Templars, widely praised as the best adventure available for iPhone / iPad.

While investigating a ruthless drug gang, journalist Nico Collard unexpectedly comes across an ancient artifact. Little can she know that the ornately carved obsidian stone will lead her, and her adventuring companion George Stobbart, into a mysterious escapade of intrigue and deceit, in which they must overcome powerful forces and antagonists who will stop at nothing to fulfill their evil ambitions.

Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror Remastered is a stunning update to the million-selling original. Along with an exclusive new interactive digital comic, from Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons, the game boasts fully animated facial expressions, enhanced graphics throughout, high quality music as well as a context-sensitive hint system, and diary. The game also features Dropbox integration which facilitates a unique cross-platform save-game feature, enabling players to enjoy the same adventure simultaneously on multiple devices, full Game Center integration including in-game achievements and many other enhancements.

I love how adventure games are coming back into form on the iOS. I only wish Back to the Future was iPhone compatible

Either way, I hope the first game drops into sale again so I can pick it up and this. Still need to get through Monkey Island!
