Solve Broken Sword's Mayan Mystery Before World Ends
Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror now has a Google Play release.
Investigative journalist Nicole Collard and her friend George Stobbart are about to plunge themselves into occult-tinged turmoil once again, as Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror gets a re-release on Google Play. The game was originally released in 1997, but its rebirth comes just before the official Mayan End of the World; nice timing on the developer's part.
The Broken Sword series was one of the classic puzzle franchises of the 1990s. Stobbart - possibly the only heroic patent lawyer in gaming - and his friend 'Nico' Collard first teamed up to solve a Templar mystery, and went on to solve two other Templar-related plots. Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror is the first time the series explored the Mayan option, and it has been re-released on other platforms; this latest is the Android version.
"When the original game was released in 1997, December 21st 2012 seemed a long, long time away," said Charles Cecil, co-founder of Revolution Software and one of the brains behind the series. "I'm delighted that Android owners are now able to play the game, but I would urge them to hurry."
This one's out now, for $4.99, via Google Play.
So will the game delete itself when Dec 21st rolls around, or is there enough filler for players to still be working on the game until the "last moment"
or get it for $2.99 (Mac or Win) from GOG.com
