The remastered iPhone and iPad version of Revolution Software's classic point-and-click adventure title Broken Sword - The Smoking Mirror can currently be downloaded from the App Store for just 69p / 99c.

This rather excellent remake sees you take control of witty franchise protagonist George Stobbart, as he sets out to rescue love interest Nico Collard from her captors.

To do so, you have to solve numerous puzzles, talk to a wacky range of characters, combine items from your inventory, and solve more puzzles.

Here's a tip

Luckily, if you're struggling a tad, you can take advantage of the game's new 'hint system', which allows you to easily bypass even the trickiest of brainteasers.

Other new features include an exclusive interactive digital comic from Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons, and support for Apple's Game Center.

Broken Sword - The Smoking Mirror: Remastered is presumably on sale for a limited time, so we suggest you grab it sharpish.
