For fans of the classic old PC game, "The Bard's Tale" finding out that someone remade the game for Android may come as a surprise and potentially disappoint you. However, don't be to hasty in your judgement lest you fall in to one of the many traps the Bard himself got himself into. Apparently, this new version was built from the ground up with loving care to be true to the spirit of the original. Yes, the mechanics are Diablo-style action, but the story and characters are filled with a snarky and irreverent humor that are sure to please fans of the original. Plus, of course there are adventures galore awaiting the Bard.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that Cary Elwes (the actor who portrayed the Dread Pirate Roberts in "Princess Bride" voices the main character. How's that for the perfect voice actor for the part? The game is $5.95 on the Google Play Store, and is a hefty 3.5GB download for Tegra users (or 1.8GB for low def). You even get a free copy of the original classic game The Bard’s Tale I: Tales of the Unknown for nostalgia purposes! The video trailer above gives you a great idea of the fun that is in store. I can't wait to give this one a try myself!
