The Bard's Tale

Indulge your shameless greediness in this wry action-RPG

The Bard's Tale is a classic tongue-in-cheek take on action/role-playing games. Players guide a nameless, unscrupulous rogue through a series of quests where he mostly summons creatures to handle the ugly stuff for him. Over time, he becomes an unwilling hero, but not without getting his just rewards. The usual RPG tropes - kill baddies, get experience points, grab loot, and level up. There are fifty types of enemies to hack and slash through (plus bosses) and sixteen different types of allies to summon.

If you want to fast track through the game, there are in-app purchases available, but if you've beat the game and are looking for more, the old-school original Bard's Tale games are included as an added bonus for the retro gamers out there. Those that are familiar with fantasy games will likely get a few chuckles out of this one.
