"Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time writing a review when I should really just be pointing at a game and demanding that people play it. This is one of those times. Steve Jackson's Sorcery! is an absolutely marvellous fantasy storybook adventure. Lushly illustrated and expertly told, it should not be missed by anyone even remotely interested in the genre." -- Gamezebo
"Let’s not mince words here... Sorcery’s unique blend of tabletop-like roleplaying (including an incredible combat system quite unlike anything I’ve seen before), and elaborate branching pathways with custom scripts preserving the feeling of Steve Jackson’s work make me now want to… no, HAVE TO acquire an iOS device" - Just Press Start
From legendary designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux), and Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone); and inkle, the studio behind the award-winning, App Store featured Frankenstein, Sorcery! is an interactive adventure like never before.
The app uses inklewriter technology to tell your journey in real-time, shaping the story around your choices. The text itself changes based on how you play and what you do, and in combat, the action is description on the fly based on how you play.
Featuring original illustrations by John Blanche, new character art by Eddie Sharam (DC Comics), an interactive map by Mike Schley (Wizards of the Coast) and music by David Wise (Donkey Kong Country).
"The Shamutanti Hills" is Part 1 of 4. Part 2, "Kharé: Cityport of Traps", is coming soon to the App Store! (Part 2 will load all of your completed Part 1 games to continue your adventure.)
What's New in Version 1.4.3
Fantastic conversion of a classic
This is a fantastic conversion of a great gamebook. It plays like a mixture of an interactive story (with tons of decisions to make, some choosing your path through the game, some just letting you shape your character's personality) and a tabletop RPG.
The new combat system (using some mild strategy elements instead of the dice rolls in the gamebook) is really fun, and generally the interface and gameplay mechanics are great and exhibit an insane amount of polish.
You can reach your goal in probably a couple of hours, but there are many different paths you can take, giving the game quite a bit of replayability. All the paths lead to the same ending, but let you gather different items and allies for the next chapter(s). All your characters that reach the end are saved in the cloud and will be selectable in the next game to continue the adventure.
I can't wait for the next three parts to be released.
A captivating journey
Sorcery! is a one-of-a-kind adventure game that manages, brilliantly, to approximate the kind of freedom you would have playing a tabletop RPG with friends. It's the first in a planned 4-part series, which gives it remarkable replay value: Go through the game a few times, making different choices, and you'll find that different possibilities open up in not only this game but the sequels as well.
Amazing interactive story game
This game is fantastic in execution. It puts itself ahead of most other games on the market, including triple-A console and PC games. Sorcery! has fantastic and unique game elements that create an amazing player-driven story. Absolutely worth 5 dollars and I hope to see other games, professional and indie, take a look at this game as a source of inspiration. Absolutely one of the best games on iOS
