The rather popular point-and-click adventure game series Broken Sword has gotten another installment released onto Google Play today called Broken Sword II – The Smoking Mirror. Developed by the fine folks over at Revolution Software, this is the original Broken Sword II game but completely remastered for mobile gameplay. Releasing this game right now is no fluke either as the plot of the game revolves around the end of the world as predicted by the Mayan calendar which, for those of you who don’t know when that is, will be on December 21st, 2012.
In this game players will see the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard in this game who are out to solve another mystery, this time surrounding a strange ancient artifact. Evil forces are out to use this artifact in conjunction with the upcoming end of the world according to the Mayans.
While this game is a remastered version of the original title, there are some exclusive features to this new mobile version which include an interactive comic from ‘Watchmen’ co-creator Dave Gibbons, fully animated facial expressions, full soundtrack and a context-sensitive hint system and a diary. There is also Dropbox integration which will allow you to us a new cross-platform save-game feature. This will enabling players to enjoy the same adventure simultaneously on multiple devices.
For those of you who are fans of the original game or just the series in general, Broken Sword II – The Smoking Mirror: Remastered is one to check out. You can grab your own copy of the game off of Google Play for $3.99.
On a side note: Some users are experiencing an issue with downloading the secondary download, otherwise known as Error 941.

However, Revolution Software has posted a few steps on their support website you can do in order to get the additional content download if you experience Error 941.
