App Store freezes over, Icewind Dale - Enhanced Edition hits the Apple realm
The isometric RPG Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is now live on the App Store. The $9.99 game is brought to you by Overhaul Games, which is the team responsible for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. It's safe to say these guys can be trusted with presenting the 2000 Black Isle / Interplay PC classic to modern timers. A
side from giving the original game's still-impressive artwork a coat of polish, Overhaul implemented an all-new interface, cross-platform multiplayer, new spells and items, almost 40 new kits and classes, missing old quests, and "countless bug fixes and improvements". What's the game about, though? Well, Icewind Dale is an icy region of the Forgotten Realms - a fantasy world setting inside the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. In the beginning, you create a party, and you venture forth to fight evil powers and frozen monsters.
