The much loved and highly popular adventure game from 1993 returns for iOS.

Simon the Sorcerer is a graphical point-and-click adventure game.
It received very high ratings and became one of the most popular and loved games of the genre.
It is very similar in style to LucasArts' many popular point-and-click adventures of the 1990s, like Monkey Island.


There are some things that kids just shouldn't have to put up with. Being transported to some weird dimension full of goblins, dwarves, swamplings, stupid wizards and sleeping giants is definitely one of them.
Simon is a teenager transported into a fantasy world as a sorcerer dressed in a cloak and pointy hat. He must use his logic and magical skills to solve puzzles as he progresses through the game.

The story begins with the protagonist, Simon, as an ordinary teenager. His dog, "Chippy", discovers a chest in the loft of his house containing a spellbook titled "Ye Olde Spellbooke". Simon throws the book onto the floor in contempt, but a portal opens above it. Chippy goes through the portal and Simon follows.
After entering the portal, Simon finds himself in another world. He escapes from some goblins who intended to eat him and discovers that he has been brought on a quest to rescue the wizard Calypso from the evil sorcerer Sordid.

When Simon discovers the tuneless bard, the repulsive Rapunzel and a pair of demons with a serious attitude problem, it could prove to be one cliché too far.
With a Nobel Prize for attempted humour and puzzles so fiendish you'll certainly need help from the wise owl, Simon the Sorcerer is guaranteed to provide a distraction from the drudgery of modern life.

Customer Reviews

Retro, glitchy, clunky and fun

Great old-school adventure game, but has some nagging problems. 1st, it freezes - a lot. Not a big deal on iOS, but you do have to wait a couple hours till the game resets itself before u can restore and keep playing. The control has not transitioned to touchscreen comfortably either. Both yer choices to navigate are inaccurate and tedious. Still, StS is charming and will appeal to old adventure game lovers like myself. Oh, and be sure to use the hint button a bunch! Many of the items you need to collect are impossible to see and simply blend into the background. Also, some of the puzzles have absurd answers. A lot of times I'm just randomly clicking, which ain't too cool. In the end though, you do get a big adventure game full of memorable characters and funny dialogue for a buck-99. In my book, worth it.

Classic!

Very funny adventure game in the style of the original Monkey Island games. If you like English fantasy humour (think Discworld), you'll enjoy this. I absolutely loved this game as a kid and I'm so happy I can play it on my iPhone and relive the memories! Chris Barrie (Rimmer from Red Dwarf) does a great job of providing Simon's voice. The developers have done a fine job with this port and the game is much more stable since the last update.

Kind of a regrettable purchase...

I understand this is an older game, but it has just too many glitches that could've and should've been fixed by the company that re-released it. Furthermore, it's a bit slow, and nearly every character you encounter is TOO talkative, not funny or memorable, and just plain intolerable. I honestly don't know if "humor" has changed THAT much over the past twenty years or so since the release of this game, or if the original developers didn't have a sense of one collectively.
