This game works with: ScummVM

"Circle of Blood is the first part in the Broken Sword series. It is a third-person point-and-click adventure entirely in 2D. The player controls George Stobbart, an American tourist spending his autumn vacation in Paris. He barely escapes a bombing of a café and decides to investigate the clues left behind by the killer. This eventually leads him to a mystery dating back to the legend of the Knights Templar.

The game is entirely in 2D and gameplay is in typical point-and-click fashion. The player moves the character around using the mouse, examines the environment, talks to other people and collect items stored in an inventory. These items need to be used or combined with other items to solve puzzles. George gets help from Nicole Collard, a French journalist.

The story has been divided into eleven chapters and takes place in locations such as Paris, Ireland, Syria, Spain and Scotland."

Patch included updates to v 1.2

Important tips:
'The computer crashes when I drop the manuscript! - Just before the point where the computer crashes turn off all music and sound fx and then play past the crash point. Once past you may switch on sounds and music and continue as normal.

If you are experiencing random crash bugs on a power Mac then please download this patchfile swordfix.sit'

There seems to be something wrong with the BSCD2andPatch.sit download. Sad

There's actually a new Director's Cut version available from Macgamestore. If you want to play this in OS X I'd recommend getting that one.

But for those of us who have the original game already, could someone upload the 1.2 patch seperately?

Seems like somebody else was faster in adding screenshots + description. Great Smile One thing I noticed - it runs fine in classic under 10.4.11 after using the PPC version (68k won't start up). The only exception are cut-scenes, which are rather choppy. Other than that I couldn't see any problems on my PowerMac G4 MDD.

Great upload SwedeBear, thank you! I'll try to burn the discs and see if it plays on my PowerMac G4 MDD and report back.
