A solo fantasy role-playing adventure where you become the hero in an epic interactive story!
"There are a bunch of fun puzzles to solve, and the tricky nature of the treasure hunts will have you thirsty to check out every detail in every room. As I've already mentioned, there's a lot of action in the game, too. The last couple of battles are grand in their scope and challenge..." - Touch Arcade
"The quality of the writing here is superb. Like the first game the author manages to keep your interest held, with the vocabulary rich and the writing witty and descriptive, holding an element of tension throughout." - Games Uncovered
"The graphics are simply excellent, with selectable fonts and backgrounds available. The quality of the design is such that it’s easy to forget you’re holding a mere iPhone in your hands and not a real-live book." - TouchMyApps
** BACK COVER BLURB! **

Ratings and Reviews
Idiotic or fun?
At the first glance this app sounds like tons of fun. However thanks to it's current configuration it is a nightmarish to the novices. Why? Well, you will die a lot, REALLY A LOT!!! You will fight the same fight over and over and over -sometimes for hours.
There are not many potions to heal you around. So, you will replay the same stuff over and over again.
As a novice player - you will get annoyed and stop playing thinking that you just threw away your hard earned $5.00.
If you stick to it, use pencil and paper, waist a day or so and figure out possible move combinations then start the book from beginning to finish it - I bet you will say NEVER AGAIN !!!
Could developers fix it and make it more enjoyable?
The answer is YES!
First of all, developers remember: if I choose to play novice it means I am clueless. I am here to try it. I am here to see if I would like app like this.
Second, if I play novice, put more potions around, better weapon & armor, and shield (like inside the pipe in door one). Let me play around, let me learn to love it. You can make it harder on other difficulty levels.
Third, please allow players to double back to certain rooms (cave, to get more doors).
Please note, I am providing creative criticism. After all, I bought the app and finished it. If developers care I got other ideas for improvement.
Not much of a story.
I was very disappointed with this gamebook. There appears to be virtually no story in this one compared to the other gamebook adventures apps I have played (1st and 3rd book). This one is all about dungeon crawling and choosing one random door over another. Also, I feel like your choices do next to nothing other than find key items that will help you get to the ultimate ending and one random choice will lead to an instant death which is really annoying. Also, it really feels like there is no story, character development, or personality to this game because you're just tossed into some dungeon for no real reason and the whole game is you just trying to get to the end. It was bland and repetitive and I would recommend the other gamebooks in this series before this one.
An entertaining and engaging gamebook experience.
I purchased the app a few weeks ago and find it to be very entertaining. The story is simple but engaging. Positive dice roll outcome is rewarding although, at times I felt that a negative dice roll on crucial spots would ruin the game experience for me later on, so it is a mix of good luck and "correct" decision making. I also felt that no matter how many times I tried different decision paths some outcomes were inevitable. I haven't finished the book yet and I am playing it bookworm mode which is fairly enjoyable. This is a gamebook adventure worth of purchasing!!
