Your boss, The Bull, the most dangerous gangster in New Orleans, has a job for you. Rescue your kidnapped lover--officially The Bull’s lover, but unofficially yours--before dawn. Slaughter everyone who stands in your way, including other gangsters, cops, and the Triad, as you slink across the underbelly of New Orleans.

"NOLA Is Burning" is a blood-soaked interactive noir thriller where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Will you outwit your enemies or take it to the mattresses with your trusty sawtooth? Will you earn respect as NOLA’s most infamous headcrusher, or will you retire to Mexico on a huge pile of cash? To be honest, you'll probably die. But in NOLA, death is just the beginning.

• Make deals with the cops, a Voodoo priestess, the leader of the local Triad, or a fallen priest.
• Mix old world magic and advanced technology in a fight to the death, and beyond.
• More than 70,000 words of interactive fiction, 15,000 words on every run through the game.

Amazing and replayable


I've played this "game" over and over to try and get the best ending. I love these types of games and I love the replayability aspect you get from these types of games that you don't get from books or video games. There's something about the hybrid between the two that strikes a perfect balance.

Ah the Mafia-and a great game for it! BUY IT


I wish it was longer but only because I liked it so much! I won't lie this game IS shorter than the other CoG's that you can purchase but I've played it multiple times and I've really liked every single play through and I'm not big into Mafia stuff. Some parts towards the end were very unrealistic and...a little weird. HOWEVER, this game doesn't pull punches like many of the other CoG do, this feels gritty, violent and dark like it should. It is a very fun, engrossing and enjoyable game complaints aside and I would LOVE if they would write or have another Mafia/Gangster 1920's game. Not necessarily a sequel but something similar would be the cat's meow ;)
So buy it and just suspend your disbelief a tiny bit.

Reasonable for publication


This is another one of those app books that in the days of my youth would have been printed and picked up by me from the local library. It's good enough to be published and read and enjoyed but it is very basic.
It's a bland story that lacks emotional connection to the reader and depth of character and atmosphere. Plus as with all choice games a short short ending. I didn't care enough to re-read the story but still have it for the next time I need a timer killer app to read. Ages 8-13 would enjoy this book more then most I think.
