The Broken Sword series of games has been ported on to many home consoles over the past few years, but it’s the Android exclusive titles that have really made the series come into its own.
The latest in the series, the Serpent’s Curse, is arguably the best yet. The game sees you tracking down the thief of a valuable painting, while also trying to get your head around a complex murder conspiracy at the same time.
From the get go you’re thrust into the action and with so many potential leads to follow, it can be a little daunting for new players to find their way.
As you progress with finding clues to solve the mystery, you’ll encounter a good array of puzzles. Difficulty levels differ between puzzle to puzzle, but some will keep you thinking for sometime. What really stands out about this title in the series is just how beautiful it looks.
Animations are really crisp throughout and the short cut scenes run without fault too, even if there isn’t that many of them.
If you can look past the difficulty level, this is by far the best Broken Sword game to date.
