Apple on Role-Playing Games
8:55 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

If you're into role-playing games, you'll want to check out Apple's new article simply titled, Role-Playing Games. The article covers popular RPGs such as MacPlay's Baldur's Gate II, GraphSim's Summoner, and Ambrosia Software's Pillars of Garendall. Here's a snippet from the article that explains what role-playing games are:

Role-playing games have very unique play mechanics. As you wander around the countryside, you randomly encounter monsters and other foes. Combat is not fast and furious, as it is with action games. Instead, you and your enemy typically take turns striking at one another. Each combatant has a variety of ratings, including health and speed. The combatant with the highest speed rating usually attacks first. You must carefully choose your attack (from a roster of possible maneuvers) so that it has maximum impact. Attacks differ in strength, and their effectiveness may also vary from one type of enemy to the next. Your attack knocks down the health of your foe, and so long as your attack remains stronger than your opponents’, you will live to see another battle.
