brokensword5From Revolution Software, the same people who brought the iPhone the fantastic remake of Beneath a Steel Sky, comes Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars: The Director's Cut [$6.99], a remake of a point-and-click adventure from '96 that many consider to be one of the greatest games within its genre. As we covered in our preview two different versions of this remake were already published on the DS and Wii in March of 2009, and the new iPhone version is a bit of a mixture of the two, adding full voice acting and other features that the DS version lacked.

Broken Sword, which was renamed Circle of Blood for its release in the USA, has been given a significant facelift. Whereas the original version of the game focused almost solely on the male character, George Stobbart, The Director's Cut does a better job of fleshing out the back story of the game's female protagonist, Nicole Collard. The game opens as Nicole prepares for an interview that unexpectedly becomes a murder investigation when the man she was set to interview is shot by a mysterious mime. Other modifications to the game include new puzzles that are specific to the iPhone platform and new art and animation from Dave Gibbons, who you might be familiar with through his work on Watchmen.

The story in Broken Sword, as in most point-and-click adventure games, is the most important element of the game, so those who haven't played a version of the game before will be pleased to find that Broken Sword's writing is excellent, and the story is quite gripping. I particularly enjoyed the self-depreciating sense of humor that Nicole occasionally displays with her commentary, and George is a comedic parody of an American from a European perspective, making him a fairly amusing character as well.

brokensword4For a point-and-click adventure, Broken Sword does a lot to make itself easily accessible. In an intelligent move by the developers, a simple finger swipe will reveal everything that George or Nicole can interact within a single screen, preventing players from having to poke around the screen randomly until they find something that they can interact with. The game's many puzzles range from brain games wherein an abstract combination of collected items must be used to progress to a lock-picking game that's nearly identical to the iPhone's own Blocked to a ridiculously complex cypher that players must harness incredible code-breaking skills to crack.

Luckily, the game has a built-in walkthrough in the form of a hint system that can be easily accessed if players want to give up and find the answer to a puzzle. For each puzzle there are several hints, each one more explicit than the last, with the last one usually being a straight-up answer to the puzzle for players who just couldn't figure things out. The genius of both the "swipe-to-reveal" mechanic and the hint system is that it's possible to never use either if a player doesn't want to. Some of the hardcore fans of the original PC version of the game that're picking up the iPhone version will want a more "pure" experience, and that option is available to them, but softies like myself can still enjoy the game without having to resort to an online walkthrough.

Broken Sword's creative touch interface works like a charm on the iPhone screen, but it was the one-two punch of the game's fantastic soundtrack and art that really hooked me. The piano-heavy orchestral soundtrack is so good that I purchased it from the iTunes store so I could listen to it later, and the fact that every line of dialogue in the game is voiced makes this a game that must be experienced with headphones. Dave Gibbon's contribution to the art and animation was an invaluable addition, as the painted backgrounds and the fluid animation adds a certain appealing touch to the game.

Even though I've never been a huge fan of point-and-click adventure games, the story and all around high-quality production values of Broken Sword sucked me in like a good book. Whether you're an old fan of the original game, a newcomer to the series, or even someone who's never played a point-and-click adventure before, Broken Sword is a game with mass appeal that will draw you in.

    Agreed. Beneath A Steel Sky is great, but showing its age more. That game was released before Broken Sword, of course, but the improved graphics put it even more in the modern age. I hope that every adventure game to come will be using this interface. It's simply perfect in every way.

    This game was pretty good, I definitely played this to the end on my Palm, and certainly was entertained by it... I remember it seeming relatively easy, compared to say Monkey Island, and so it may appeal to more people as a result.

    Instant buy. Even though I bought it and the other two games on special through Steam a short while ago, $9AUD is a cheap price for a brilliant game, especially redone and modernised nicely like this! Worth every dollar.

    I played the orginal when it first game out many years ago, it was a great game then and the directors cut for the iPhone has made it even better. Despite one or two minor cutscenes that have been removed from the orignal game which I found odd the game has a great story great characters . Hopefully they are going to make broken sword 2 directors cut too!

    Hi bought broken sword for iPhone but for the life of me can't

      OK, everyone having problems with the code in the well. I finally got it to work. But, none of the numbers in the diary worked, except for the first #=14. (wii version) I tried to keep track of the numbers that worked but I must have missed pulling the slider switch on one of them because I ended up with an extra number (14 R, 29 R, 3 L, 84 L, 6 R, 8 R, & 9 L). I was getting very frustrated trying to put in the numbers from the diary. I finally just started moving the dial by one digit until the safe locked into a number and shook. Then it was easy because I wasn't trying to put in specific numbers. Hope this helps.

        I'm stuck here, too -- even replayed the game, restarted my phone, everything...

      • Blake_seks

        me too, driving me nuts. does anyone know what the blue arrows mean, which are circular and appear when you select an item and drag it around?

        thanks

      • Aallw

        maybe you have to fix the machine. take the wire on the plug in the wall.
        the blue arrows mean if u want to connect your things with eachother. for example a mirror with snake.< --- (u dont get a snake or something, this was just an example)

      • anna

        you need to show the bartender Moerlins pass. then you can fix the machine.

      • Joe

        I did it, but still stuck :(

      • Jeffy

        After showing the pass. Take the wire you got from the guy sneezing and hold it to just at the side of the washer that will fix that and bartender will let you down the cellar

      • Lalala

        But it doesn't work! There has to be a REAL way to do it!

      • Cassandraminde

        Did you find out what you had to do to make the wire on the glass washer work? When I try to use the wire nothing happens, he just puts the plug straight back in.

    • Moi

      you need to show the barman your green pass with moerlin's name on it. then he'll let you behind the bar. you can then drag the wire onto the plug (not the actual washer)

      • Blahblahblah

        That doesn't work!

    • Hollymorgan1

      i think you have to pull the plug out or change it first then drag over the wire and i think that works :)

    Hi:

    I also can't solve the puzzle to open the door in the well. Have tried to follow the hints and different combinations and still haven't got the correct one. The numbers are XIV and XXVII right, VI and LXXXI left, III and I right and XVII, XII and XXV (left or right??) and one should add the new number to the last result, taking out the hundreds.

    So the sequence is supposed to be:
    XIV and XLI right (clockwise)
    XLVII and XXVIII left (counter clockwise, taking out a hundred to CXXVIII)
    XXXI and XXXII right (clockwise)
    LXIX and LXI and LXXXVI left (counterclockwise...also tried clockwise)

    What I'm doing wrong?

    Any help appreciated.

      I thought the same, but authors did quite a confusing job with that hint "27 right wont work, TRY ADDING each new number to previous total blablabla"...took me a day, there is NO any kind of adding for anything.
      Instead of that, they should say; "Try counterclockwise" direction after first XIV Clockwise entering (both for read and yellow numbers)...so Wilderness is right but forgot to tell you KEY, and that is; Go right for XIV, but for XXVII go Left, etc etc.

    Hi
    This is a great game but I'm stuck very early on
    - using the iPhone version.
    How can you proceed if you can't solve a problem?

    I can't open the secret door despite having squashed the
    canister and putting it in the gap.
    What else do you need to do?

    This was the only place that stumped me for a while, so when you get past it you should have a relatively frustration free journey to the end of this excellent port.

    Just started a new game to check this, if you prop the cross up with the crushed shell and put the artifact in the slot panel the second time, when you remove the artifact and then the shell the cross doesn't drop allowing you access to put the shell under the door to lever it.

    The door jammed was driving me crazy too. Just solved it - prop the cross up with the crushed shell, and put the artefact in the slot panel again. Then LEAVE the artefact in the slot panel, remove the shell, and voila the cross doesn't drop. Now the door will open. Sheesh.

  • Steven

    I'm pretty early in the game. Nico and George have met, the cafe has been blown up, Nico has found the bug in her apartment. Now, when she goes back to the neighborhood of the cafe, she said she needs some direction where to go next. She can only go three places: her apartment (and neighbor), Carchon's apartment (and guard), and the neighborhood of the cafe. I am totally stumped, and can't move forward. ARGH.

    Can anyone help me get past this point?

  • Streamofpraise

    How the hell do you solve the puzzle in the well?? The hints are completely useless, it's as if the developers copied/pasted the hints from the DS/Wii version of the game onto this one. Where in the world does it say "XIV Right" in the diary? It says "XIV and XXVII at the top". How the hell do you turn the dial "up"?? And what "slider" is the hint referring to? When do I use it, at the end of each number or pair of numbers or after all eight are entered? Which of the two directional buttons do I use to turn??
    The game has been wonderful so far, but this flaw made it unplayable.

    • Glenn

      couldnt actually agree more...ive been going mad for about 2 hours desperately trying to find out how to do it...ive seen "explanations" but so far none of them have explained exactly what to do...they have been just as confusing as the shocking hints

      • Rebeccagarrard

        What is it about sliding the slider mentioned in the hints. I can get anything on the screen to slide. Any help much appreciated!

  • Stephanie

    Help, please! Am stuck on opening safe in room with Fascist regalia.
    Thanks.

  • Stephanie

    OK - solved the safe. Now stuck on what seems to be a glitch in the programme. I have tried over 100 times to use the wire in the place the hints tell me to use it, but am just met by "Hmmm... Maybe not". The problem seems to be that the wire is in the second row on the inventory. Before you get it clear of the frame, so that the inventory can fade, the two arrows disaappear... over and over again. Please can someone help?

    • Matt91827

      Use the wire on the socket not the machine

      • Maddie

        the guy just shrugs at me!

    • ???

      what safe r u talking about?

  • Pauline_woods

      • Anniemegarry

      • Vivianever

  • anne

    when youre stuck in the pub with the wire and diswasher, show the card with electrician to the bartender. Then he will let you try. The wire goes into wallsocket (excuse my english..)

    Where can i find the shell?

  • Zhirafica

    how oh how am i supposed to solve the museum crune and find this lobineau dude? i noticed that the guard closes the window whenever i open it - that gives me enough time to go hide in the sarcophagus, but what then?
    the shell is under the wooden boat skeleton, you just need to tip it over

    • emmy1

      when i hid in the sarcophagus the gurad said that the museum would close and a movie would appear but lobinue was there, i think you have to play a bit more so he'll appear before you're supposed to hide in the sarcophagus =)

  • Al

  • michaela

    help! what do i need to open the safe with in the room with the flags?

    • Blake_seks

      you cant, you have to return there once you have received the key, which is in another area.

      • michaela

        but i tried to leave and it says theres more to find :-(

      • Blake_seks

        have you found two things in the drawer, thats all you need from there at this stage

  • Emma

    You can't immediately open the safe in the state room...first you have to go back to the Cafe and investigate. You'll find what you need there.

  • Al

    Is this a glitch...or am I the glitch? I've been back the cafe and found the bag with the coded note and deciphered it but when I try to leave the area it says I can't. So I went to hints and it say I need to examine the contents and decrypt the the note...but I've already done it? Am I missing something?

    • Go

      Have you called from the phone of the road man?

      • Al

        Yeah, I just closed the game down and restarted...think it was a glitch. Stuck in the Irish Pub now...cannot get the wire to replace the fuse in the plug of the glasswasher! Frustrating!

      • emmy1

        Have you shown the bartender the ID? I was stuck there aswell but when you do that he thinks you're an electrican and you can put the wire in the socket on the wall next to the door! =)

    • Jjjzhu

    Hi just getting into this game but im stuck at the bit were u look after the mans hole & tool box & dnt no wot 2 do nxt george just keeps dhrugging at me plz help x

  • alistone

    I am quite far on in the game and am completely stuck.... George has made the plaster key and needs to use the painter's paint to change it's colour to fool the guard. I have tried putting it in the paint and he stops me so I called nico and went up to distract the painter and say that he was needed on the phone but it wasn't an option so I called nico again and once again it didnt work..... And now George won't call nico because he says he shouldn't call unless something important.... I know what to do but I am now completely stuck, george won't call Nico so i can't. Can anyone help me?

    • Car-crash

      talk to the painter again, he'll go down and answer the phone. Repeat again for the guard.

    • Fayem

      Hi, I spent ages on this. When i was touching the paint I wasnt selecting the key first. If you just go near him and press the cogs he tells you to go away which is misguiding. Try selecting the key from your inventory then dipping that in the paint. After that try calling Nico again. Good luck.

  • Lynsey

    i am trying to open the safe in te drawing room but every time i try and use the key she jut says no despite the hints telling me its that key....can anyone help? its driving me maaaaad! :-)

  • lara

    please does anyone know how to solve the puzzle in the well. I am so stuck, i have tried doing each numeral in the diary alternating right and left and nothing happens. Is there something i am missing?? when i match up the correct numerals should i press something?? please help i have been stuck on this for ages! Thank you in advance.

    • alistone

      I can't help you because im not that far yet but i guess it means you've gotten past the key and paint thing? could you please help me i am so annoyed i can not do it! my whole question is two above yours thankyou :)

    • Car-crash

      Ok this one was absurd, but finally worked it out. You must turn both the dials in the direction indicated and then press the button. For the ones with just a single number use the blank space for the outermost ring.

      X 1V Right
      XX V11 Left
      V1 Right
      LXXX 1 Left
      III Right
      I Left
      X V11 Right
      X II Left
      XX V Right

      • Kieran

        Thanks!!

        Direction doesnt matter!

  • lara

    ok so you need to ring nico (if it will let you) and go upstairs to get the painter while she holds the line. Then the painter will go downstairs. Then you dip the key in the paint and voila. If that doesn't work then try talking to the painter about stuff before you try again. Maybe try to use his pot or flatter him or something then maybe the game will recognise this and let you move on. I hope this helps!! you are very close to where i am so if you get there and manage to open the door please help me!! :D good luck!

    • alistone

      i can't talk to him about anything apart from my objects! nico didn't help before she just said why are you calling me! argh! its so annoying i will try again and yes if it does help then i will try thankyou :)

      • lara

        that is so strange. It may be a glitch in your game in which case you may have to start again. The symbol for the phone is a green phone symbol when you talk to the painter. I hope it works out for you cos starting over would be such a pain! :)

      • alistone

        yeah it won't let me... gah. im going to have to start again... its all nico's fault. i so can not be bothered. and i liked this game. btw i have a site wihich helped me loads with the game to help you.... http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii/954826-broken-sword-shadow-of-the-templars-the-directors/faqs/56227.... its good :) hope it helps.

      • lara

        thank you so much, i think i may have found what i was doing wrong. I wasn't pressing this button :P lol its such a stupis mistake. Oh its such a shame about your problem :( thanks again :)

      • alistone

        im glad i could help... and i don't know how to even restart the game.

      • Car-crash

        Have you tried shutting down the game entirely, and opening it again?
        Or go to a different zone and come back, maybe the options for the phone will come back?
        Make sure you've actually made the key - it's out of the soap

      • louk

        i have something similar, im trying to turn on the light in the cellar to find the gem thing, so i need to go ask the barman to open the gitter for me to let in light, but i cant order a beer to persuade him? all i can do is talk about my objects. im not sure if im doing anything wrong, can you help?
        thankyou!

      • lozzy

        you have to open the grille thing yourself from outside :)

  • Pouchy1969

    hi all i am stuck in the pub in ireland i cant get the wire in the plug any ideas been stuck for 2 days grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    • alistone

      this happened to me are you putting the wire on top of the plug? just keep trying it eventually works :)

      • Pouchy1969

        yep i keep doing it just above when the light goes goldren but george just keeps saying maybe not or shrugging hers shoulders

    • Car-crash

      talk to the barman, show him the electricians card.
      Then wire to the socket not the dishwasher.

      • Pouchy1969

        i have done that still not working

  • Chuck

    For tgose who cant solve the puzzle in the well. The hint is completely wrong. Ignore it, just follow the number 14, 27, 81, ect. line it up with the arrows on top then clic the slider that is also a reset button after you enter each number.

  • Liviisdabest

    hI :) im in the well< but im stuck on the roman numerals part :/ how do you crack the code?? x

  • louk

    gaaah :/
    im in the cellar of the bar and i need to turn on the light to see the sink.
    i know i need to go up, ask the barman for a beer to make him open the gitter, but it wont let me order a beer!! the only thing i can talk to him about is my objects, and also i think ive jammed the switch outside the bar? anyone know how to help? its really fustrating..

    • Fayem

      hi, from what i remember there isnt a light in the cellar the only way to get light is by opening the gutter outside. Try doing that. I think it is locked from the inside so you'll have to try to open it in there.

  • Nick

    Ditto Lynsey's safe problem in the drawing room. The key just doesn't open it and I can't leave the flat. I resorted to the walk through but this just says use the safe key on the safe!!! Well it doesn't open, she just says No.

    Is this an iPhone glitch?

  • Nick

    Scrub that problem. You have to select the key, hold it over the lock whilst it is gold and the tap the cogs on the lock. The interface on the iphone is cumbersome imho.

  • connie

    THE WELL!!
    Finally got it, it's:
    XIV, XXVII, VI, LXXXI, III, I, XVII, XII, XXV

    in between each one click the button with an arrow on the bottom right. at the end press the brown button in the middle of the circle...

    I wrote the numbers in a circle and eventually figured out the order! Phew!! :)

    • emma

      did you alternate between clockwise and counter clockwise?? its driving me mad iv been trying for 2 days now

      • Bex

        The red arrows correspond to one circle and the yellow for the other circle. It doesn't matter which way you take it as long as the number matches at the top then you press the button at the bottom right. Do this for each of the numbers then press the middle button.

  • Lisa Somerset

    • Aeb

      You use the crushed shotgun shell...

      • Lisa Somerset

        The shell case??? The one that's flattened at one end? Tried that about 20 times with nothing - did it anohter 6 times just now and suddenly it's just let me - thank you!!!!!!!!!

    • Mark T3857

      You have to use the shell which you flattened at one end earlier. Its all to do with placement an nothing more. Took me a while too ! Can be very frustrating tho

    Hi, I'm in the hotel room in Hotel Ubu. Khan has come in and changed his pants and I'm inbestigating the ones he's left on the bed. Apparently I shoudl find a pass here but both pockets are empty and I can't work out how to look in the seam that has been stitched up.

    • Charlotte

      there is a secret pocket above the right pocket on the front. Turn them over and search the back two pockets, you will find a a matchbook. Then you need to pull the thread on the left corner of the pants to open the secret pocket on the front, hope that helps :D

    • Lozz

      the pant, by the button, there shold be a ble circle so you can switch them over and search the back of the trousers.

    • Li-marie

      have you opened the drawer till it falls out (twice) and collected the item from inside where the drawer fits. The key for the safe is collected elsewhere and you have to come back. I think it may be from the pouch found in the cafe after talking to the man boarding it up but cant remember so could be wrong, but its more like a stone key than a metal one

      go to the statue at the right sid n Use the lens with the scroll the statue of the knight is holding.

      You can then look through the scroll, and through the lens, to find a puzzle hidden inside the stained glass window. This puzzle varies a little between the DS and Wii. Again, the DS version allows moving the three layers only along one axis, and the Wii version allows them to be rotated.

      The easiest way to line up the three layers is to focus on the bottom -- the date, in Roman numerals.

      Since that's a set date, we can line it up so it reads properly. The rest of the image should then pretty much fall into place.

      The year is 1314.

  • Hanseulnam

    Please help me I'm stuck really early on in this game but the bit with the two locks at the iron gate that you have to free the blocks to get the bolt to slide across is really bugging me I cant seem to solve this puzzle and the cheat says slide your finger from left to right but it isn't working am I doing something wrong, PLEASE HELP !!!

  • Pret-342

    For those stuck with the well and numerals:

    1. Doesnt matter which way u rotate as long as the combinations are alligned.
    2. The arrow on th actual dial, all combinations must be aligned at the top where the arrow and space are.
    3. After each combo is aligned press the arrow at the bottom which will register the combo.
    4. After a combos are entered and stated then press the brown box in th middle.

    • Golfersmudge

  • Mark T3857

    Im stuck in Syria where you're meant to polish the statue with the cloth by the stall cellar. The cat has disappeared and the guy with the red shirt keeps coming in/out of the door. What do I have to do to polish the statue ! I've obviously missed something

    • Suzyq33

      I am also stuck in Syria, you are meant to polish the statue with the tissue covered in greasepaint but nothing happens. I am sure I have collected all the other items, like the paper towel, ball, keys, chain etc., but can't get the $50 from the Americans to go in the taxi. All my saves are recent so it looks like I will have to start from the beginning, any ideas?

      • Mark T3857

        Managed to do it finally ! From your collection of items I somehow managed to move the greasepaint tissue over to the twig and they wrapped themselves together ! Then it was a case of placing it over the crack in the cliff
        Hope that helps
        I'm now stuck in the church trying to do the coding...........!!!

  • Marianruis

  • Paulette Barrish

    I'm stuck right at the beginning in the drawing room. I have the key from the hole in the table but I'm unable to open the safe in the drawing room. Everytime I drag the key over the hole nothing happens. Can anyone help? The actions in this game don't seem very accurate and I'm struggling to see why it's getting rave reviews.

  • Yantob

    Stuck in Fascist State room, just decrypted the letter that starts with 'Pierre...' Can't open the safe, can't see anything else new, she refuses to leave as she has 'a hunch there was more to find.' In walkthru's I've seen she goes back to her apartment after the letter is decrypted. Am playing on iPad, any help appreciated
