iPad - iPhone OFF-line emulation

Maybe a silly question but generally I have terrible reception and it’s usually only good for reading forums and mail. Is there an emulator that can play this game offline and would it run a registered version of Silversword?

Will this game ever hit the GOG or steam circuit?
If only iPad or iPhone is the iPad the best and does that work offline?

This is a really really great looking game and rendition of bardstale like games. It has features I only can yell at inxile to implement but they won’t.

I seriously hope you keep adding to this game, produce options for player maps/mods, and make more. It’s damn good and I wish more developers would emulate some of the classics properly with features to enhance the oldies.

I followed the Sword of Fargoal craze for years until it died out. There are others I’d love to see in their own genre style like phantasie, wizard’s crown/ED, Shard of spring/DW, etc.

I’m still waiting to see if a relative is going to pass down their iPad or not. I’m in no hurry atm before surging to get one. How old of a model I don’t know what I’ll get or what even works these days. I just can see me trying to play on my iphone 8plus.

The game works fine offline on iOS devices, there was talk of an android version but I think it was scrapped.

Hello there,

thank you very much!

No GOG, no Steam - Apple iOS only. Sorry.
But I will try to support the game as long as Apple lets me ;-)

Happy playing - I think it plays pretty well on Smartphones so you don't miss anything (no need to get an iPad).

AFAIK there are only three things you need to be online to do:

1. Download the game itself (duh)

2. Save your game to iCloud or restore the game from iCloud

3. Make in-app purchases

I've played SS for many happy hours on trains and planes with no internet.

That’s fantastic to know; esp the flying.
