Description

Gamebook Adventures returns for its fifth title! Please note that you do not need to have read any of the previous gamebooks in order to read and play this. The critically acclaimed series of newly imagined interactive fantasy gamebooks puts you, the reader, in control of the story! Along with a realistic dice-based battle system to fight creatures, an epic tale and beautiful artwork, Catacombs of the Undercity will give you many hours of gamebook adventuring!

"Captured by one of Orlandes City’s most infamous brotherhoods, the Red Hand Guild, you are thrown to the mercy of the subterranean world deep beneath the streets of the great capital. Wading through the sewers and other dark menacing places, your goal is to reach Undercity, the City beneath the City! Only there can you find the help you need to escape this underground horror and bring down the dark brotherhood from within."

"My favourite examples so far though are the iPad and iPhone-compatible Gamebook Adventures, 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

"Catacombs of the Undercity is the best entry into the Orlandes series I’ve played yet. It’s exciting, atmospheric and even amusing at times, plus there are plenty more beasties to battle too." - iPhoneFreak (4/5)

Gamebook Adventures 5: Catacombs of the Undercity is the fifth in a series of newly written adventure gamebooks for the iPhone, iPod Touch and now beautifully realised for the iPad! We are completely original and not simply a re-print of old gamebooks.

•Written by Andrew Wright, Gamebook Adventures 5 takes you on an swashbuckling quest from the sewers of Orlandes City to the subterranean metropolis of Undercity.
•Pirkka Harvala, the popular illustrator from An Assassin in Orlandes, is back! His beautiful illustrations bring to life the denizens of this strange underworld.
•Battle an array of creatures from acid ghouls to spirit demons and find ways to get your revenge against the Red Hand Guild.
•Hire mercenaries to aid you in your quest!
•Unique battle system using realistic 3D dice which can be rolled by shaking your iDevice.

Customer Reviews

Not a good showing

I have several of Tin Man's game books and enjoy them, but this one was not a good example of their work. Several times I got toward the end of the story and could not pick up from my safe point. Also getting lost seems to be a recurring theme in this book, not fun at all. Terrible device for gameplay. I do recommend this company's products on the whole, just not this one.

Not their best attemp

I have enjoyed many of the other Tin Man game books, but I find this one to be lacking. The quality of the writing is not up to their usual standards, and at least one corny pop-culture reference feels really out of place in this genre.
