There should be more games like this Games like heroes of neverwinter or pool of radianceor even the temple of elemental evil, the world would be a better place indeed
Fantastic but... This works great on my Samsung tab and even though trying to click on a door can sometimes be frustrating I would still give it 5 stars except...from time to time my main character seems to lose all his weapons. Don't know if this is just a problem for me but I have noticed they dissapear one at a time (dual wielding) and they don't end up on the ground or in inventory.
Could do better Great game Frustrating on character selections at times Would be better if you could use the click and drag like on PC to select the whole group at once rather than the button Just quicker Other than that really enjoyable As enjoyable as PC version
great game, mildly-frustrating port Technically, porting this game to touch screens is a brilliant idea. Unfortunately, touch-screen technology isn't what it could be (yet, anyways). Thus, you will find yourself missclicking on characters a lot, commands not being followed because they never registered, or the wrong character accepting commands because you didn't notice the game failed to change to the character you selected (this happens a lot due to getting complacent from the game properly picking up changes until the magical moment it doesn't). I find myself having to zoom in a lot, which is something I really dislike on a mechanics level, plus it breaks immersion. The game on its own is a masterpiece, and while I have my gripes about this port, it is definitely playable.
Does not work on android lollipop Galaxy Tab S "Omtimised for tablets"? Mmmmmmm. 5* for sure when the game is working, however, I recently upgraded the firmware on my tab to lollipop, now it doesn't start - just a blank screen with sound, so the 60 + hours I put in are wasted until Beamdog sort it out 1*. Trust me, do not buy if unsure, check out other reviews/forums for here and similar games, all with the same issue! ***UPDATE*** The update has finally arrived! 6 months too late in my view, but now as it is working 5*.
No The devs did NOTHING to remedy this game's more famous bugs. Add to that the fact that they ported this game to smartphones while doing nothing to optimize the gameplay for the experience. You'll be hidden, and enemies will go directly to you and sit by you until you reappear. If you give a command, but your target moves out of sight on accident, all commands will be forgotten. The AI is atrocious, you only find the right path by wandering into areas where you get slaughtered.
