2nd Best Game Ever Made - The only game that is better is Baldur's Gate 2.
Bug for any Retina Mac user. - The game cannot be enjoyed due to the bug that affects gameplay in any Retina-based Mac (the mouse tooltip won’t get scaled as the rest of the game, making text almost impossible to read).

The UI Scaling is just so terrible - It was a terrible first experience with this game as there are no resolution settings, and the text and UI scaling settings just dont make the game easily playable. I can't recommend this game until those issues are resolved. I wish I could refund my $20.
No problems here on a retina Mac - I see a lot of negative comments regarding interface problems. I’m not sure which versions of the game or iOS versions those refer to but as of Sept. 2019, I’m running v. 2.5.17 on a 2019 retina MacBook Air with a current iOS and having no problems at all. Great classic game; runs just fine.
Very Good Game. Fun To Play. - Running: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) 3.4 GHz i7, Mem: 24 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2 GB At first game display small. Fixed. What I did: 1) In game unselected Full Screen at first. But now Full Screen displays full screen. 2) Changed System Preferences - Display - Resolution= Scaled=2048 x 1152. Restarted game. Game display was at full screan. Then I switched back to Resolution= "Default for display." And restarted game. Game display was still at full screen / full window. Looks good! Probably did not need to do all that. Has a good tutorial. And in the game there are NPC characters called "Tutor" who will give lessons on mechanics of game if you choose. Great for new players. One gives a good explaination of colors of circles around characters. Lots of video & info on the net. Search the net: For example: Search terms to search for info on "mage": baldursgate.fandom mage
Way to small on retina screen - Unplayable on a 27" iMac with retina screen. No way to resize.
Pure, True Dungeons & Dragons - Feels like real 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons back from the TSR days. It's not that said mechanics were used to make a game, but a game was made to use those mechanics.
