Are you one of the 14,000 people who backed the next Broken Sword adventure on Kickstarter? If so, this old skool point-and-click adventure might keep you occupied while you wait for Revolution's next instalment.
Bulkypix has resurrected Pendulo Studios's 2003 game of the same name for iOS, and its timing could not be better - if only to act as an aperitif for The Serpent's Curse.
Tapping around for an idea
You play as Brian, a student driving across America when a beautiful girl runs blindly into the road and duly bounces off the front of his car.
It transpires that she's running from some mafia hitmen, and soon Brian and the girl, Gina, are quickly caught up in the adventure of a lifetime, with plenty of tapping around indoor scenery for items and puzzles along the way.
A badly dubbed point-and-click that at least packs the artwork to get you in the mood for the next Broken Sword - but it's not the main event
