inXile has hit a bit of a Bard’s Tale stride lately. Not only has the 2004 version been released for the Mac, complete with saved-game compatibility with the iOS release, but the latter has also received a healthy update. With the latest patch, which includes Bard’s Tale 3, the iOS version now boasts not only the 2004 version but also the entire original Bard’s Tale Trilogy.
The iOS version is also compatible with the 60beat GamePad controller, providing a more console-like experience. The update brings with it a new promotion as well, a two-week sale price of $2.99. The $9.99 OS X version, however, seems to be having some problems, judging by the early reviews. Be cautious, weary traveler!
