Bal-ders gate! Bal-ders gate! Balders gate! Balders gate!


Is it on sale or something, or just new? I saw that while I browsing the app store earlier and it is $10 which is about $9 more than I like to spend ;).

Puzzle Quest 2 (Universal) has FINALLY dropped in price to $1.99, which is the lowest it's ever been in iOS format. I've heard mixed things about how the iOS version fares, but I think I'm still gonna try it out.

I'd love to pick it up, but I don't have an iPad and won't get one until they release an iPad mini with retina display. I'd get it for PC, but I don't like the fact that the developer is using their own proprietary portal instead of Steam. They could at least offer a DRM free version.

Well, maybe next year when Apple releases the inevitable next-gen iPad mini...

I was really looking forward to World Fighter, now called Writer Rumble when I first saw it like two years ago, but after playing the game for a bit I'm just not feeling it. it doesn't do much different than other boggle word games on ios. And you cant tap letters, you have to drag. This sucks since putting in non-words is a penalty and sometimes you want to back up or not put the word at all. Makes it hard to do so when you drag around the screen.

For $0.99 its a great time waster on the bus or waiting for your to go order. The multiplayer is sort of fun, but you need to play with someone who is equally skilled or it is boring. Played with my gf, not that she cant spell, but she is just slow thinking with games like this. So she may end up with longer words, but I just destroy her with all the 3 and 4 letter words I get out.

Also if you want the Baldur's Gate remake, get it on PC. I bet it will be on sale soon at some point anyways. I cant imagine playing a game of that length on a touch device.

See, I'm the opposite. 10 is half the price of the DRM'd PC copy. And honestly, they should give me a discount with a pic of me holding all the original disks for the entire BG/IWD/NWN series'.

I've been waiting and drooling for this. So much so that I updated to iOS6 for it. I have no idea how good it is yet but the initial reviews say it is well done on the touch screen.

As is, I'm dreaming of the iOS of FTL. If that happens... I dunno. I'll be a little apple mind slave cause my fav games will be apple (except Skyrim, but what can you do there)

So I played about 45 minutes of the Final Fantasy Dimensions prologue, and I can't really make up my mind about getting the game. Why on earth didn't they put some of the job system into the demo?

BG on ipad comes out to the same price as the pc version when you buy the iap packs. The pc version already comes with them

Tempted to pick that up since I never played it before. Not sure how I missed it the first time, think I was too preoccupied with FF7 on my PS1. (Damn I'm getting old)


Oh... me neither... and I have the cereal box version and from GOG. It should be easier to get a game going on an iPad.

I can't speak for the PSP version, but I bought FF3 for my iPad (3rd Generation) and it's VERY good on iOS. It's not cheap but I was surprised at how well done the game is on an iDevice.

Wonderputt is free today. iPad 2 & above only. (this is why it's on my wishlist - I only had an iPad 1!)

AppShopper: http://appshopper.com/games/wonderputt

I'll be "purchasing" so I have it when I get an iPad again.

Wonderputt was on my wish list so I'm glad to see it went free. I played a few holes and so far it's a really fun game.

I was interested to know this too so I did some google-fu. The PSP version seems to have some improvements but is also more expensive. Also the iOS version appears to be a direct port of the nintendo DS version.

-The PSP port will feature enhanced graphics
-a new option to complete the game using the original Famicom music.
-an image gallery
-and an auto battle feature that speeds up combat.

Lol, the fifth preview screen has a submarine in it with the official badge and colors of an Italian football team, A.S. Roma!
I wonder why... maybe developers are from Liverpool? :lol:

Anyway, is there anybody who tried Royal Revolt!? It's a freemium tower "offense" game which seems quite competent, but I don't know how much IAPs dependent it is...

Check your PMs. I left that one out of the group that went under my pits.

Bombshells is a great flight sim marred the fact that it's F2P and milking that for every penny. What a shame.

Not seeing much talk about it here but is baldurs gate worth the $10 tag? I'm interested in playing it (never played it back in the day) but not sure if I want to pay that much for a iPad game.

The short answer to this is yes. The game is worth every penny. A classic RPG which every gamer should play at least once.

However,

I for one refuse to pay that much for an iPad game. You can always buy the PC version on sale for less.

Still struggling to find a game that I absolutely love on a mobile platform. I know most great games are not free, and any that are require a lot of payment/time.

Hoping to find a game in the $3-5 range that I really love soon (or there will be some great christmas freebies!)

Actually, go read the forums on TouchArcade about the game and there's control issues. I was seriously excited until I saw all the issues (regarding magic or doors or the like...)

I'd love to get it in the pc but our pc is seriously dated. I can't really even play those stupid Facebook games on it. Guess I may try and hold out for some kind of sale. Thanks for the reply.

Can anyone give any recommendations for a good iPad RPG? I already have bastion, final fantasy & the zenonia games. (I don't really consider bastion a RPG though)
