Avernum 1 (Escape from the Pit) is one of the few RPGs I had completed on my iPad.

Avadon 2 is coming soon too, and I haven't even started on Avernum 6. So many RPGs so little time...

I played what was i think their first game back in the mid-90's. Well, the shareware version. How does this one compare with their other games in the store?

Great game. I've played through Avadon: The Black Fortress. I've dipped into this game a little and it too lives up to its reputation. The iPad seems an excellent platform for these types of RPGs too.

Oh... just disregard the post - I was in a state about non-game related things. My apologies for clogging the forums with it!

To answer you question: I haven't played the remake (though I am currently playing Avernum 1, which this is based off of), and I can only recommend Spiderweb Software's games from my limited - but thoroughly enjoyable - time with some of the Geneforge series and the Avernum series.

Jeff Vogle's games are GREAT in my opinion - like a lot of reviews say, if you yearn for the days of Ultima-like rpg's (in terms of scope, dialogue trees, etc.) then you won't be disappointed. Hope that helps.

On sale again (probably not for a few more hours in the US).
