App description: The dawn is especially cruel this morning...

For as long as you can remember your view of the world has been limited to the heavily fortified walls of Candlekeep. Your foster father, Gorion, has done everything in his power to protect you, and keep you out of harms way.

All of that is about to change. Forced to leave your home under mysterious circumstances, you find yourself drawn into a conflict that has the Sword Coast on the brink of war. An iron shortage of unknown origin threatens to plunge the city of Baldurs Gate into conflict with Amn. Meanwhile, there is something else at work, far more sinister than you can even begin to fathom...

Since its release in 1998, this classic saga of mystery, intrigue, and adventure has set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons computer roleplaying games. Customize your heros traits and abilities, recruit a party of brave allies, and explore the far corners of the Sword Coast in your search for adventure, profit and the truth.

* Brothers Lost: Lend your aid to Rasaad yn Bashir, the Sun Soul Monk, as he scours the Cloud Peaks in search of his lost brother.

It looks fine. Definitely not retina, but you don't notice it from a normal viewing distance.

Filters that "soften things" are terrible. I don't want blurry vasoline smeared over my games. I'll buy when I get home but I'm not hopeful.

Why not check out videos and screens before you judge?
It looks better than vanilla BG when on max zoom, if they hadn't used the filter it would have been way too pixelly...

For those who wonder about multiplayer, a dedicated multiplatform matchmaking system will be released at a later date.

Is the text difficult to read on the Mini? If you own Avadon or Avernum, how does it compare?

You can use the "TAB" button on pc to reveal everything you can manipulate on a map, it wasn't present on BG Vanilla.

There's an icon on the iPad version that does the same. Makes it much easier to see where you need to touch to open doors and stairs...

Anyone else stuck in a loop in the tutorial?

I'm at the part where the thief teaches you to pick locks. I went to the cabinet, picked the lock, got party xp for it, but it didn't seem to register. She keeps asking me to pick the lock, but it's no longer pickable. What dumbass thing did I do wrong?
