"Cesaro Cortez, a famed explorer-conquistador, set out three years ago on his last great expedition. His ships never returned to an Orlandrian port and he was feared lost until a mysterious cargo appeared recently in Miramar. The nature of this cargo will put Orlandes in jeopardy, sending you on an epic journey to find Cortez, save the country and face your darkest fear!"
"For those of us who grew up with the Fighting Fantasy books, this is almost like a homecoming. It’s a great modern equivalent to the books many of us loved as youngsters, with the same kind of attention to detail and thrilling fantastical touches that made these adventures so enjoyable. A splendidly written interactive fantasy story that will keep you hooked until the very end." - POCKETGAMER (8 out of 10 review)
"...a series of lovingly crafted and extremely well-written interactive fantasy novels. It's surprisingly engrossing stuff, the economically written narrative packing in masses of detail, while rattling out a pacey, involving story." - THE GUARDIAN
"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read – not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM
"After finally making my way through the series’ newest release, I’m somewhat ashamed that I’ve waited so long to take the plunge..." - 148APPS

Challenging and fun
Of all the Tin Man gamebooks I have purchased I enjoyed this one most. The phobia checks were and added element to the story making it that much more interesting. There were just enough options in this story for it to feel as if you had a good deal of control. The only caveat is that you had to get a lot of things right to get the good ending to this story. It will take a lot of time to get through this one but it's worth it. Good job!
Good adventure, bad combat system
As a long time player of Fighting Fantasy and others, I was glad to see TMG taking their own direction on it.
Spider God is a really solid adventure, a lot of fun... Except for the bad combat system (even in Casual mode you cannot win without a lot of cheat-healing) and an error that you cannot have the sacrificial kinfe and also win the book.
Still. A fun adventure well worth a couple of bucks.
Enjoyed it completely. Love the colorful art, great story and gameplay. Thanks!
