Worth it need an update thou
Charming Old School game
Is you consider Ps2 retro, then this is definitely some retro fun on the go. Plus there’s the original Bard’s tale trilogy included for free. Now that’s retro!
This is such a great value!
The main game is fun. Playing the old bard’s tale games on iPad? PRICELESS fun XD -
warning re: the bonus content. if you never played such crazy hard-core games you will likely not like it. They were REALLY hard! With NO creature comforts: you were REQUIRED to map out the dungeons in square math paper, no auto mapping. Crazy hard to start out. But if you grew up with hard core, playing these on the couch is epic.
Even if you’re not into the bonus content the main game is worth it.
