The Bard's Tale

When I read IGN's review of the Bard's Tale in which they said that it is the funniest game they have ever played, I did not believe it at first. But, of course, within the first ten minutes, I realized that they were right. The Bard's Tale is an RPG, with talented humor and it is so addictive! Also, according to the creators, it is one of the biggest games ever to come out for the Android. It is interesting that the game's version for Tegra chipsets takes up 3.4 GB of space!

In this game, you are no longer playing the hero who will save the world, but the only thing that matters to the "hero" is money and having a good time. We take on the role of a Bard, a wandering warrior and occasional monster hunter with a good sense of humor (when the hero talks back to the narrator it is especially hilarious)! He has just arrived in the town of Houton, with only a lute and empty pockets. The story begins with a rat problem, and before you know it, you are involved in a grand adventure across the whole of the region of Houton. This is how you start hunting monsters and other similar enemies. The game has over 50 different characters, not including bosses. So, as you win battles and finish a mission, you gain levels and the game gets harder.

Through the aid of music, the Bard learns to rely on the help of some creatures. At first, the Bard only knows one song that allows him to summon the aid of... a mouse. As the game progresses, he can ultimately summon four creatures at the same time, from a total of 16 that will accompany him on his travels.

As in all RPG games, the Bard's stats improve during his adventures. Meanwhile, the Bard learns new abilities that allow him to make different types of attacks, such as combo attacks, attacks with two weapons and many others. Finally, along with new skills, the Bard finds new musical instruments, like an electric guitar, which allows him to replenish his magic energy more quickly.
As opposed to the classic D&D systems which use group parties, in this game, we only have the Bard. Beyond that, the choice of player characters who will be invoked through the music, is entirely dependent on the player. This creates very interesting combinations. For example, at some points, we can have in our company a creature that has the character of a 'Cleric' or a 'Thief'. Continuous changes in the characters keep the game fresh and allow the player to try many combinations.

The game is large by today's standards as it takes close to 20 hours to complete. Also, it is impossible for players to see everything the first time they play the game. The game play always moves on and never stays dull, resulting in the player having no need to return to regions which they have already visited. Some of my favorite scenes include when the Bard is called for help, as is almost expected, it makes things worse. The missions are always original and full of humor.

This game has fantastic graphics for an Android Game. All things are beautifully crafted, and they have a cartoonish style. All characters have personality, and the voice acting is professional, especially the Narrator. As this is a Bard's Tale game, music is its second name. All the game mechanics are surrounded by music. It is the element that makes it special, besides the above. Throughout the game, you will encounter a lot of characters that the only thing they do, is sing. You can listen the songs and sing along in karaoke style. You can also see the infamous yellow ball point to you, what word to sing. You will find numerous times yourself, just wandering and sing the songs. The songs are so well written. Listen to the beginning the Beer song and you will know.
Armed with its vitriolic humor and its excellent graphics, witty dialogues, quick loading times, manages by not taking itself seriously, to create one of the most significant RPGs optimized for Android. Additionally this game comes with the three old Bard Tale titles from PC era. It is 4 games in one, and if you like big adventures and funny moments, you will just love it.
