It wasn’t long ago that I took a look at one of the most
entertaining Palm and Pocket PC games available, Astraware’s Broken
Sword. Alison Barclay has just sent me the latest:
“THE MIDLANDS, UK – September 28th, 2006 – Astraware and
Revolution Software are excited to announce a special Broken Sword
promotion to celebrate 10 years since the release of the original
When the game was originally released on 30th September 1996,
no-one could have forseen that the game would still be receiving
rave reviews a full decade later. ‘Broken Sword: Shadow of the
Templars’ has been released on several platforms including PC,
PlayStation(R), GameBoy Advance(R), and most recently for Palm
OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R). Broken Sword is now an award-winning
franchise with three sequels. The most recent, ‘Broken Sword 4: The
Angel of Death’, has just been released and is currently number 1
in the charts.
“We always dreamed of writing the game on a device that would
reach beyond hardcore gamers; with the emphasis on intelligent,
cerebral gameplay, rather than the requirement for manual
dexterity, the game was always intended to have a broad appeal.
Writing the game on Palm OS(R)and Windows Mobile(R) platforms has
finally allowed us to achieve this goal”, said Charles Cecil,
Managing Director and co-founder of Revolution Software.
“We are really proud of how the game has turned out on Palm
OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R).”, said Tony Warriner, co-founder of
Revolution Software, “The PC version was praised for its beauty and
subtlety, and this has translated perfectly”.

Sword: Shadow of the Templars’, Astraware is making the game
available at a very special discount price. From Friday 29th
September to Sunday 1st October 2006 ONLY, ‘Broken Sword: Shadow of
