Baldur's Gate Enhanced on iPad

I've been playing a little Baldur's Gate in the evenings on my iPad .  Thinking recently of the allure of single player RPGs, this seems like the perfect place to start.

Many games don't translate well to the touchscreen, but older RPGs are generally a good fit with their point and click interface.  

So far combat is the only thing that doesn't always respond to "clicks" in a timely way, which can mean death.  

I was lost on the road to the Friendly Arm Inn in an earlier play through and didn't like my character build so I started over from scratch with an eleven Ranger.

She got stuck in a doorway last night and no online tip helped get her loose, so backing up to a previous save.

There are many adventures to be had by those who proceed slowly and save often.

  1. I've been playing a little of this too and I have no end of problems with the combat. I also got stuck in a barrel and had to reload. Needs work, I'd say.

    1. If I get too frustrated, I have it for PC too, and I can switch to a more reliable click. It's nice to have something engaging for the smaller screen.
