Broken Sword - The Shadow of the Templars is arguably Revolution's biggest selling and best loved adventure title to date. Released in 1996, Broken Sword 1 is still a popular game in its own right to this very day. Moreover, the series has proven popular with players of all ages and fans of many different gaming genres.
BS1 introduces the quirky and refreshingly different gaming heroes, George Stobbart and Nico Collard to the gaming world. Humour, adventure, detective work and conspiracy on a global scale are all elements that define Broken Sword.
In 2001 Revolution produced a faithful reproduction of Broken Sword - The Shadow of the Templars for the Game Boy Advance. This game used a brand new engine and the game was completely re-implemented using only the sprites and text lines from the original game. GBA Sword is still available for purchase, but please hurry as the initial cart run will soon run out!
Bizzarly, the USA publisher of BS1 decided to change its name in the USA to "Circle of Blood"?. Rest assured, name aside, COB is exactly the same game and can still be found for sale in the USA.
