No reason for giving a bad review. Your feedback is very welcome on our forums (http://silversword-rpg.com/phpbb3/index.php) or via the support e-mail address. Most of the functions in the game were implemented because YOU wanted them :-) So feel free to spread your thoughts. You are a creator!

IMPORTANT: The game needs a lot of memory due to its bitmap graphics. If you encounter memory issues (app crashing), please use the "low resolution" settings in the app settings.

Update 2.1.6 is live!

I have some news :-)

Major changes!

- Experience points adjusted! After level 14, all classes will need 200,000 XP for the next level, increasing by roughly 7% per level.
- Your actual characters will be adjusted to the new system. Sorry if this will turn out negative for your high-level party. But it adds more balance to the system.
- Stats are now capped at 30 (primary stats are capped at 40).
- Loot chances adjusted. You should get more loot now, even in high-level zones.

Minor changes!

- You will now have two new settings in the iOS App Settings Screen for Silversword: 1. Show XP to next level. This will show the experience points needed for the next level on the character screen instead of displaying the whole sum. 2. Display time. This will toggle a time display beneath the Settings Icon during the game. By touching the time, you can switch between real time and ingame time of day.
- A Cancel button was added to the Deposit and Withdraw actions in the bank.
- A bug was fixed that allowed selling unidentified items with a gold value of 0.
- Song of Spirit now gives more SP when your Bard reaches level 20, 30, 40...
- Walking Creak is now a plant.
- In-App Purchase 500,000 Gold added. Once again: You don't need any IAP to play and enjoy the game!! This is for people who want to save some grinding time. I know that Archmage Spells are very expensive, but this was made for balancing the game, and not for boosting my In-App Sales. If you are still not convinced, write me a nice mail and I will see what I can do.
- Before changing class, you are now informed when a character has not yet learned all spells for the current class.
- New inventory function "Trade all" for trading whole stacks of items to another character.

Oops I nearly forgot...

A NEW USER INTERFACE for the iPhone version is alive! The party display is now larger, allowing you to select your characters more easily. In addition, a nice claw mark was added to the background. I hope you will enjoy it! The interface structure itself wasn't changed, to keep the classic Bard's Tale spirit alive.

Regards
Mario

2.1.9 live... but the next update is coming soon.

Done with the game? Far from it! Lets spoil

Update 2.1.9 brings you some more enhancements to stability. Characters are now saved upon creation, and enduring item effects like the Troll Ring should be working correct after Load/Save/Standby. But theres more!

The Divvy Gold option will now complement the Pool Gold option.

The most special feature should be found out by YOU, when facing the next big boss mob the next time (Orc Chief, Maruziel, Sprenger, Warlord etc.). I hope you will like it!

Did I say that 2.2.0 is on the horizon? It is!

What to expect?

- When switching to another character you will stay on the same screen now (where applicable).

- Great enhancement to the map system: The overview map is now linked to every zone youve visited, and your zones are linked together so that you can explore every map ever visited by a simple touch!

- and more!

Best regards
Mario

P.S. Interesting for some people who have difficulties reading and touching the game controls - there's a new option "font size" available, now can scale the output / buttons to fit your needs.

Thank you very much!

Updates keep coming, because there are so many players who bring up new ideas :-)

The next big thing will be the "Legend" mode, for hardcore players ;-)

- A separate Leaderboard on Game Center
- Saving game only possible in camps / guilds
- No In-App-Purchases possible (except expansion + compendium), I know that this isn't a good way of making money ;-)
- No starting gold
- No welcome gift from your bank
- HP and SP rolls on levelup fixed
- and probably some more changes...

All the best
Mario

I absolutely love this game, but I'm always torn to start on what party composition I want

I just bought this game. It's because I enjoyed QuestLord recently and then that inspired me to play the Quest. I have been ignoring that game since 2009! I enjoyed the main game and then a post by UndeadCow (mine and many other TA readers RPG mentor) made me aware of this game.

I've only played a couple of hours so far but I'm enjoying it immensely. It is so much more playable than the Bards Tale 1 to 3 within the The Bards Tale app which seem an unplayable mess by comparison.

Now I just bought the Compendium because it is easy to see that I will be spending a lot of time with this game.

Thanks to the dev for pouring his heart and soul into this game. Thanks to UndeadCow for finding and educating me about the finest RPG offerings on IOS.

Anybody who is new to IOS or anyone who has been disappointed with the lack of good games recently (with notable exceptions like QuestLord, Heroes&Castles etc) should delve into these old games as they are created with passion and by now are fully fleshed out, polished and relatively bug free.

Downloaded due to the other thread which mentioned Silversword.

Anybody know how to change the colour scheme on the Silversword forum as the black background doesn't agree with me...

v2.2.7

Just to inform you, some more adjustments are live now:

- new bank functionality for better vault handling: items are categorized in the "withdraw" menu
- boost for IQ: bard songs have their duration extended - 6 seconds per intelligence above 14
- boost for LK: on each melee attack, a d100 is rolled - if the result is below your Luck, you will score double damage (this will be shown in the combat messages) -- beware! your enemies will do it, too (their chance is 10%).

Kind regards
Mario
