News on this game

Cannot purchase Broken Sword II for Sony Xperia Go

Platform: Android

Unfortunately we cannot support the Xperia Go model, as it is fundamentally incompatible with Broken Sword 2.

Due to critical issues with the drivers on the device itself, it is incapable of running the game. For this reason we have blocked its purchase from this device, to prevent people from purchasing a product they are unable to use.

Problems with the touch interface (Android/iOS)

  1. Open the inventory by tapping it once.
  2. Press down your finger on the item you wish to use, and wait for it to pop above your finger.
  3. Keep holding your finger down and drag it over the screen to where you wish to use the item (there will be a ‘hotspot’).
  4. When your finger is over the hotspot, the item should highlight yellow while still above your finger.
  5. Let go of the item by lifting your finger from the screen.

You can also use this method to combine two items in your inventory.

Before using this support area be sure to check you are running on or above the recommended system requirements located at the bottom of this page.
