Let’s say you’re a fan of role-playing games with turn-based combat, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money. There’s still time this weekend to grab the savings on a few great Mac and iOS compatible RPGs (specifically, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Avadon) before the sales are over.


Jeff Vogel from Spiderweb Software is hard at work on Avadon 2, and now’s the perfect time to pick up Avadon for iPad at 50% off. Pay only $4.99, instead of the usual $9.99, until the end of this weekend.

Avadon Wood Hall

Don’t have an iPad? Don’t fret; there’s going to be a sale for Mac gamers very soon.

The first day on the job is tough for everyone, especially when you’re tasked with making a very angry dragon happy. Then you have to catch a dangerous magical beast followed by a diplomatic mission where peace is an illusion. In Spiderweb Software’s latest game—Avadon – The Black Fortress—you play a Hand of Avadon whose task it is to preserve the peace of The Pact from enemies both within and without. Can you use the power you’ve been given wisely?

If you want to learn more about Avadon, read my review of the OS X version here at Appletell.

Speaking of Avadon 2, if you have an Intel Mac and want to be a beta tester apply now. In addition, all Spiderweb Software games for OS X are $10 at the Mac App Store, down from their original price of $15.

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition

Baldur’s Gate for OS X and Windows originally sells for $19.99, but through the end of the weekend you can save 40% off.

Now you’ll only pay $11.99 for dozens of hours of cave exploring, dice rolling, boss killing, and loot collecting fun.

Getting a game fifteen years after its initial release is nothing new for longtime Mac users, who were used to passing the time between “new” games by playing Mario Teaches Typing and reading stories about Mac game companies going out of business. What’s odd is when we get a new version of a game that was released on the Mac fifteen years ago, and was one of the great computer role-playing games. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, already released for the iPad, is now available for OS X.
