I successfully completed a mission by killing some orcs and their leader. I guess I wasn't paying attention when I created my characters because I just noticed my mage has 4 HP. A maximum of 4 HP. She dies a lot.

Yeah I was surprised at how much I liked it after I got into it. With all the options you could play it over and over and not play the same way twice.

I thought to try it myself and then realised I don't have it on apple I have it from google play. Lovely. Well I hope it goes on some sort of supersale on steam. I played it a little bit on my last phone and the little I played was great fun, but tell me how it is on SE? My phone is SE too.

Well you can zoom in on the battle so that helps a lot but the buttons on the sides and in the inventory screens are pretty small and you can't zoom on them. It can be a little frustrating at times but not unplayable. It could be unplayable if you have large fingers though.

Finished with the prologue and started chapter 1. I'm still kind of lost though. The problem is the easy difficulty is too easy but when I move up to normal, I get decimated. An in game tutorial would be a big help because I still haven't got a handle on manually directing my people. I guess I just need to find a good tutorial online.

Fairly average woman hands I think ^^ I'm still not sure what platform to get it on, but I haven't had time to play almost anything except our raids so. Hectic times, I'm glad it's a two month game.

For Icewind Dale, a computer with a mouse would be the way to go if you have that option.

Yep I'm hoping they put it on sale on Steam. Steam Winter sales are ridiculous.

Iíve been playing these games since release and Iíve never enjoyed them as much as I do on iPad. I find that I feel more connected to the game world through the iPads touch interface.

I wish I had an ipad, would be much easier. Still waiting for that winter sale.
