Reviewed in Actually GOOD Games
Originally a ps2 game, this game is quite humorous and not built like your typical phone game at all (which is a good thing). It's definitely worth a couple of dollars. I was surprised with how charming it was and how much I liked it. You can also change around the controls to different modes/areas so that it works better for you as well.

An re-release of an old Xbox game. The bards tale is an action rpg full of humor and quite solid gameplay. It revolves around the bard, you, who arent really a willing hero, mostly motivated by gold and boobies (not that thats bad ;) who gets caught up in an epic struggle between bad and good, however not all things are as they seem. The gameplay is good, but be prepared to die quite alot in the beginning untill you have gotten used to the somewhat floaty controls and gotten some decent songs. Songs summon different creatures that helps you, anything from warriors and archers to spiders made of lightning. Also what wepon you choose have quite a big impact. Some choices are easier than others, dual wielding can stunlock many enemies to death for example. The humour is actually great, parodying many classical fantasy stereotypes and quite often breaking the 4th wall with discussions between the narrator and the bard. There are some choices in the game that carries some weight in how the game plays out. The progression is quite linear, new city, new equipment to buy, but interesting enough to keep you playing. Definitely worth the money, you will get many hours of fun from this one. There are in-app purchases however they are totally unneccesary, more like oldschool cheats, i really recommend not using them since you more or less break the game.
