The Bard's Tale arrives on the BlackBerry PlayBook - Embark on a quest for coin and cleavage!

The Bard's Tale
By Bla1ze on 13 Sep 2012 05:00 pm EDT

If you're looking for an epic game to play on your BlackBerry PlayBook, you're in luck. The Bard's Tale has finally arrived in BlackBerry App World and it's jam packed with great visuals, awesome gameplay and humor. You'll take on the role of Bard and battle your way through what will end up being 20-30 hours of adventure.

  • 50 enemy types (not counting bosses!)
  • A vast world to explore with towns, wild forests, rivers, castles, towers, secret dungeons, snowy mountains, caverns, haunted tombs and more 
  • A full cast of bizarre NPC’s 
  • Over a dozen special boss enemies to defeat 
  • 16 magical characters to discover and then summon at will to aid you 
  • Over 150 unique items of weaponry, armor, instruments, tokens, artifacts and loot! 
  • More Song & Dance numbers than any other game, including a zombie dance-off! 
  • Over 14 hours of outstanding voice-acting from top Hollywood talent, including Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) as the Bard, and the inimitable Tony Jay as the Narrator
  • Autosave—option to save automatically when you near a save-book in game.
  • Time-Savers—optional in-app purchases are available to pump up your Bard and save you time! (Note: All such items are attainable through normal game-play, with time and persistence, just as in the original console release.)
  • Includes the original classic game The Bard’s Tale I: Tales of the Unknown! 2 & 3 coming soon! (Supports Bluetooth keyboard and mouse)

If you're looking to pick the game up, it'll set you back $5.99 but given the hours of entertainment you'll get out of it, it's certainly worth a look. Plus, the inclusion of The Bard’s Tale I: Tales of the Unknown and future updates is a nice bonus. You'll want to be mindful of the game size though, as you'll need 3.2GB of space to get it downloaded. We've included the game trailer down below, in case you want to give that a look before jumping in.

Purchase The Bard's Tale from BlackBerry App World



What Jonesy said... I'm not usually into this sort of thing... but it looks like a hoot and I've just finished my latest DVD Box set, so this'll keep me busy for a while.


lol 3.2gb i def went with the wrong of 16gb pb i only got 4gb left over and i havent put anything but apps and games on it


Yeah, a game like this makes me think maybe the 32GB wasn't such a bad idea.


Wow so much for the 16 gig PlayBook owners ,this MC3 2 videos and 40 pics might just jam you up.


5.99 to much for me to want to spend on it right now :p


Not so long ago, a game like this would have been $50 for a console.

Thanks to mobile devices, people are getting cheaper and cheaper.

In two years, someone will sell a game like this for 25 cents and mobile users will complain that it's more than a nickel ...


lol you're probably right


Ugh. I'm sorry I still like the originals. Why they had to steal the name I can't figure out.


looks like loads of fun!

Bold 9900 - Playbook 32GB - Lumia 800


This device will make me broke, I tell ya'...


glad i went for the 32gb last second


Funny that everyone is drooling over a game that looks like a 1990 title...


What a sad human being.


Gotta love trolls with funny memories.

Yeah - looks just like an NES, Genesis or Turbografx game. NOT.


Oh I wish. Titles from the early 90s were great!


I'd pay $6 for the original game itself.


Got it. 1Gig! holy Guac! .............still downloading


let us know how it is.

hows saving?

Save a game everytime you want. More than one game to save/10? 100? at least three games would be nice.

I really thinking about buying it.


I remember playing this game on the Commodore 64,, a great computer with great sound.


Still got my C64! :). Can't wait to hook it back up and play some old school. Hillsfar.


Wow the first lady I met in this game is certainly living up to the title on this forum post! :-)


Well, I have a 75mbps fios connection at home, and I've just finished my fifth failed attempt to download and install the game. It takes about 15 minutes to get 400+mb and then fails. Is this an appworld problem?


It could be the server is being overwhelmed.


It did downloaded successfully but it took 2 hours to load the 1GB and another half to install...

This is almost a fail ;)


Sounds more like a network/server congestion issue. If all else fails, set it to download when everyone goes to sleep. Big downloads always seem to work better after midnight.


so after playing ~ three and a half hours : great game so far :)

It's my taste in humor ;)


Finished the game, 22 hours later. It was A LOT of fun.
