Crescent Moon Games, known for its quality iOS gaming work (Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Dig!), has just released it’s well-regarded iOS game, Ravensword: Shadowlands, for Mac OS X.

Apple gave Ravensword: Shadowlands the Editor’s Choice designation for the iPad version, which can still be purchased for $7 on the iTunes App Store. The Mac OS X Version, enhanced with graphical upgrades like realtime shadows, bloom effects, and high resolution textures and environment models, is in the Mac App Store right now for $13, which seems like a pretty decent deal.

This open-world role playing game has been called the Elder Scrolls of mobile gaming, and the full experience is now on the Mac, in addition to the higher end visuals. There’s a huge 3D high-fantasy-themed world to explore, hundreds of items to find and use, and an epic storyline and soundtrack to immerse you in the gameplay. You’ll get to try out various weapon types like bows, crossbows, hammers, swords, and axes, and get places faster on horses and flying mounts, as well. You’ll fight your way past enemies, counting on your armor upgrades and looted items to keep you safe and vanquish your foes across a ton of multi-part quests.

Sounds like a pretty typical Friday night, no?

If this sounds like fun to you, you could do worse than pick up a gorgeous open-world fantasy RPG for $13 on the Mac App Store, right? Ravensword: Shadowlands requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later to run on your Mac.
