I had all the old bards tales games, sure I still do somewhere, plus the 'construction kit'. Only ever played the first one, had a pretty solid party after being really careful to save my game on a separate floppy disc(!) every time I saved. Then couldn't make it through a dungeon due to it having bullshit 'Walls that look like Walls that aren't really there' or bullshit random teleport points. I can't remember which.
Still good to see a game updated in such a nice fashion though.

yeah i think it was a randomly changing maze that changed every step you made. IIRC
Good deal, but shame the new(ish) game is so godawful.
The same applies for the tablet version, by the way - it's worth paying for just to get original Bard Tales on the go.
