One of the most pleasant iOS gaming surprises in 2010 came in the form of HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1. The point & click adventure was a refreshing take on the genre, filled with crude humour, challenging puzzles and superb visuals. Sadly, the cliffhanger ending left us wanting for more…much more. Well the good news is that the potty-mouth detective is back to save the town of Clappers Wreake from the mysterious (and psychopathic) terrorist in HECTOR: Ep2 – Senseless Acts of Justice. Now published by TellTale Games, Hector Ep2 features all that you loved from the first, plus it’s twice as long in content. If you missed our review of Badge of Carnage, here’s what ChiffaN had to say:
HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 is a welcome addition to the adventure game genre. The excellent atmospheric graphics, crude but witty humour, excellently balanced and thought out puzzles, memorable characters and hilarious writing make it a definite must have for any iAdventurer. Despite the author’s claims of a “half-decent” adventure game, it is actually one of the best games I’ve ever played on the iOS. And I’m NOT talking just about adventure games.
For those new to the ongoing tale of Hector, Ep 1 for the iPhone is now on sale for $0.99 until Sept 1st, while the iPad version drops down in price to $2.99. And while you’re at it, if you do get stuck, don’t forget to check out our walkthrough for the first episode.

“Raunchy, rude and really fun.” – IGN
“Easily the most British game you’ll play.” – PC Gamer
DETECTIVE INSPECTOR HECTOR
The hard-nosed, soft-bellied lawman of Clappers Wreake, a town that took the “Great” out of Britain. He’s violent, drunken, and has a taste for all things criminal, corrupt, or smothered in curry.
EPISODE 2 – SENSELESS ACTS OF JUSTICE
Hunting a psychopath, Hector is pulled down a twisted trail of meat, sin, sleaze, and more meat.
* Twice as long as Ep 1, but half as good!
* New unnecessarily distasteful characters (flaming stripper, street urchin, etc)
* At some point you’ll have to play as Lambert. Sorry about that.
