Apple Bytes: Broken Sword 5, RoboCop and 300: Rise of an Empire

This week: 3 new games to watch out for – Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse , RoboCop and 300: Rise of an Empire – Seize Your Glory!

Revolution’s classic 2D mystery, Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse: Episode One, is now available on iOS; a platform perfectly suited to the game, as proved by the popularity of previous Broken Sword iOS releases. In 2011 Broken Sword went to number one on iTunes in every major European territory and notched up an impressive 5 million downloads.

“From multi-award winning Revolution Software comes the latest explosive episode in this classic series. Playing as intrepid American George Stobbart and sassy French journalist Nico Collard, you find yourself on the trail of a stolen painting – and a murderous conspiracy.  A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word… When a mysterious painting is stolen during an armed raid on a Paris gallery, George Stobbart and Nico Collard are thrown, seemingly by chance, into the investigation together. From Paris to London and beyond, the trail becomes a race against time as dark forces from Europe’s turbulent past are woken from their slumber. Broken Sword characters old and new are encountered – but who can George and Nico trust? The journey they are on reveals a conspiracy as old as the written word, whose ancient heresies will cause innocent blood to spill once more… Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour – can George and Nico save mankind from disaster? Can you solve the secret of the Serpent’s Curse? A curse which, some claim, was forged by the Devil himself…”

We all love a good freebie, so check out the film tie-in shoot ’em up game for the release of the RoboCop reboot. I’ve got to say, it’s a great little game, with really good graphics, and very evocative of the film (if you’ve seen it yet – personally I loved it, and I’m speaking as someone who was not initially a fan of the idea of rebooting, or its 12A certificate) – download it for free now. It’s a classic first-person shoot that allows you to accumulate credits to upgrade your weaponry and you move around cleaning up the scum of Metro City.

And finally, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have released the game trailer for 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE: SEIZE YOUR GLORY, available now to play on iOS. In the game users take the role of Athenian General Themistokles as he battles across Persian ships through fog and fire. Just a reminder, that the film, which pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy, opens March 7, 2014.
