Good mornin’ to ya, lads and lassies! Square1 has swiftly delivered their promised update to The Bard’s Tale, and it’s spiffy. Game speed on PBOS 2.1 is now amazeballs fast in most places! The sound effects bug seems to be resolved, based on my limited play time before work this morning, and stability is definitely improved, though I did experience another hard lock-up that required me to force-reboot my PlayBook.
Features Added (that I’ve noticed):
- Option to turn toggle water effects on or off (can help performance, SQ1 told me they had to turn them off for the Kindle Fire version; never been a problem for me on PB)
- Upgraded summon tune icons now gold-colored, making it a snap to know which tunes are plain and which are buffed (see screenshot above, showing my Upgraded Knight and Crone, plain ol’ Rogue and Behemoth).
- Better performance on PBOS 2.1
If you notice anything else new, drop some knowledge on us in the Comments! If you aren’t playing this game yet, then it’s baaad luck to be you, and you won’t get this joke. 😉
