Wow! Required minimum 3.4GB of installation space! How can I reduce this via iTunes? Oh, and look at screenshots 2 & 7

Bargain of the month.

Excellent game and simply worth the download to play one of the best games ever 'The Bards Tale III: Thief of Fate'

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

I spent so many hours with the original game on the C64 and a pad of graph paper to map out the dungeons. I think this was the first real RPG that captured my attention and wouldn't let go.

Yeah, I was thinking about snagging it specifically for Bards Tale III as well. I got Bards Tale III on the Apple II computer for Christmas when I was kid and it was the best Christmas ever. I remember how mindblown I was about the animation graphics compared to Bards Tale II lol. One question for any who have it, how do they do the physical copy of the spinning guide that you had to align that was included in the original game which was required to get coordinates for travel? Also, does it have the manual with the list of spell names especially for where you had to type in the spells abbreviation to cast it? I can't view the videos so sorry if this was addressed in them.

I have been playing Silversword on iOS for the last couple years and it is the closest thing to Bards Tale III and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this type of game.

Favorite iOS games: King of Dragon Pass, RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion, Junk Jack X & Silversword.

I actually wish they would just sell the original trilogy, either separately or as a bundle, on the App Store. I have no desire to play the new version, and cannot justify the space it demands.

I bought this during a past sale. $0.99 is a steal for all of this content... and yes, this is actually still installed on my iPhone. It's well worth the space for all 4 games.

BTW, installed is 1.7GB. You need the install size + the download size but when it's done it only eats up 1.7GB. Food for thought.

This gamer runs on premium games.

One of the best games / game collections on the AppStore.
If you don't own this and have any interest in RPG's or adventure games, you are missing out massively.

Really dumb question, I know, but I can't seem to even damage that huge rat in the bar. Any ideas?

Edit: Wasn't summoning it in the right place Got it now!
