    Setting a new benchmark for adventure titles on the iPhone, Beneath a Steel Sky retains all of its original charm while subtly updating itself for its new format.

    BaSS is a genuinely funny game, boasting the kind of clever humour that we all too rarely see these days.

    While the PC version game has been available for free over the years, the iPhone version is a worthy conversion for fans and newcomers to the series.

    Tempered by minor control quirks, Beneath a Steel Sky remains as entertaining as it did 15 years ago, galvanising the adventure gaming resurgence on iPhone.

    Getting hung up on a puzzle right before lecture starts, missing a chunk of dialogue in front of the television, and trying to figure out what the heck I was doing when I last saved so that I can resume my story are all things that really conflict with how I play my iPhone games.

The iOS version kills a good part of the challenge, but it is necessary due to the lack of the mouse scroll on screen. Available for free on PC, it really should have more visibility! Point and Click have almost no replay value and usually it's play-through lasts less than one hour, and that's the case. But it's free, ain't it?
    Give it a try!

    I didn’t play the IOS version, so i can´t talk about it. But I did play the PC version very recently.

    To keep things short and sweat:
    Visually, it’s decent even for today’s standards and the puzzles are challenging enough, but the best “sell” point in this one is the humor; this game is just freaking hilarious. OH, and it’s free for PC (GOG.com).
    I gave it a 7/10 because it’s a nice distraction for a few hours, but it’s no master piece.
    So, what are you waiting for? Go download it now, and experience a true point and click classic.
