Four months ago, part one of the Kickstarter-funded fifth installment of the Broken Sword series hit the Play Store costing $6.99. It has since dropped to $4.99, and today part two of the saga is available for one dollar more, a reasonable $5.99. Okay, now that the math is out of the way, let's recap. Broken Sword is a long-running adventure series (the 5 in the name may have given that away) that has been picking up fans since 1996, and given the success the franchise found on Kickstarter, clearly many of them have stuck around.

These most recent installments bring many improvements, including visuals that really are a treat. All of that pointing and clicking (or in our case, tapping) should go down much easier when the game looks like this.

This title scales to both phones and tablets, though the latter may still provide for an easier experience. We all know how point-and-click games go. Sometimes selecting the right portion of the screen to solve a puzzle requires a fair degree of precision.

In this genre, carefully following the plot is every bit as important as keeping an eye on the action, so the story is available in a number of languages. Voice overs come in English, French, and German, while subtitles are offered in English, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. That means quite a few people should be able to take advantage of the link below.

Bertel King, Jr.
Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Think I'll be getting this, the first episode is £2.99 here in the UK and £3.99 for the second, still way cheaper than getting it from Gog or Steam for my PC. Does the Android version have the same content as the PC version, as this is like 60% cheaper on Android for both episodes
