You have reached the gates of Mampang, the ancient Fortress of Sorcerers. It is guarded by Birdmen, mutants, traps and ancient, wild magic. But inside is the Crown of Kings and the only hope for peace in the Old World. You must make your way past chasms, guards, walls and evil magic if you are to face the Archmage - and survive.

From the creators of TIME's Game of the Year 2014 and four-time BAFTA nominee, "80 Days", comes the final part of the epic, acclaimed Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series, co-creator of Games Workshop and Fighting Fantasy (with Iain Livingstone).

Using inkle's unique ink engine, the story is written in real-time, built around your choices and actions. Every action is remembered, and every decision, however small, can make the different between life and death, success and failure, humiliation or triumph.

Sorcery! 4 is our most complex story to date, featuring over half a million words of adaptive content which incorporates all your choices from previous parts.

The Sorcery! is true epic, interactive storytelling - and it concludes here.

Editors’ Notes

The final chapter in this text-driven adventure never misses a chance to keep you in suspense. We couldn’t wait to see how all our choices played out, whether we’d dared to help a ghost or cross a precarious rope bridge. And with their old-school flair, the combat and spellcasting sequences are as gripping as the story. Wherever we went, we always felt like we were on the verge of discovering something cool.

Excellent game as always!

I regret being swayed by the other reviewers saying that it has a big fault, with that fault being ***minor spoilers***
[the rewind function is removed for a large part of the game. Now, it has a reason, and a reasonable one at that, which is part of the game design and story.]

I finally bought it to finish my story despite the negative reviews, and I'm glad I did. I even redid it a few times to get different endings, and I'd like to say, "I'm satisfied." No, that's not good enough; I'd say I'm proud to have bought the fantastic game that Inkle has made out a fantastic series, and I shall continue to hope they will create and recreate more interactive fiction games!

WHY?!?!?!

I loved this series. LOVED it! Until this one. Removing the rewind function, that the previous entries were built around and that facilitated the joy of exploration and experimentation, was unnecessary and poorly executed.

Compensating with a "hard reset" that sends you back to virtually the beginning of the story, and unlike sorcery!2 doesn't let you choose a reset point, forces you into a decision making process of simply "which option lets me NOT die so I don't have to redo the entire story". It's not enjoyable at all.

Most in depth reviews point out this "repetition" as a negative, but still give it a good score. Yes it is a quality product, just not fun.
