A POWERFUL STORY THAT YOU CONTROL:
For three years the soldiers of the Black Lance Legion have watched as the Invaders turned their solar system into a hellish, desolate wasteland. Humanity’s most advanced fighting force lurked in the shadows, doing little while their species was forced to choose between eternal enslavement… or extinction.
The wait ends when Admiral Franks, the legendary Storm Lord at the head of the Legion, announces a system-wide uprising against humanity’s oppressors. Cromulus and his team of human fanatics find themselves on the front lines, doing whatever it takes to crush the will of the Invaders.
In SOL INVICTUS, Cromulus finds out that not all humans are willing to take the kinds of risks that he takes. And while he has less than zero tolerance for pacifism, what the Legion does with its softer recruits may be too much even for him…
The second part of Kyle B. Stiff’s legendary adventure gamebook series has been brought to life as never before in this official SOL INVICTUS game. Get ready for the ride of your life as you become the hero of your very own story.

REVIEWS FROM THE PREQUEL “HEAVY METAL THUNDER”
"This could be the digital adventure you've been waiting for." -- Pocket Gamer (Silver Award)
"Its art is absolutely fantastic. Super atmospheric, and very well put together. I love the audio." - Don't forget a towel (9.25/10)
"High replay value with its divergent narratives." -- App Advice
"Overall verdict: great, great, great." -- Lloyd of Gamebooks
-- Pocket Gamer (Silver Award)
"The kind of deathly sci-fi that you’ll enjoy if you liked Dead Space or the frightening moments of desperation in Gravity."
"Heavy Metal Thunder is a cruel and unforgiving gamebook. It bashes you against the debris of space over and over, and is happy to leave you at the mercy of all manner of terrors."
"It's a pretty big departure from the usual tone we've come to expect from iOS gamebooks, and that's no bad thing. It's not quite hard sci-fi, but there's a bleakness here that you rarely find in a Fighting Fantasy adaptation."
"It's refreshingly grim, and manages to keep you entertained throughout its hefty running time."
"Fans of the genre thirsting for something a little darker should definitely give it a look."
-- Pocket Tactics
"A big sweeping pulp sci-fi story of impossible odds and encroaching insanity."
"I had a lot of fun with Heavy Metal Thunder, and look forward to future installments."
What's New in Version 1.1
-Image sharing improvement
In my opinion, this is the best game book app out there. It feels as if the decision I make actually matters, instead of depending entirely on luck.
My only complaint is that since this is a continuation of the first book, out stat and skills from the first book should have been carry over to this one. I hope that when the third book comes out my stat from this one could be imported somehow, instead if starting all over again.
I hate reading a lot. I saw that this app for free and I decided to get it and it is AMAZING! It has a great story and I would definitely pay the full amount to get it. I look forward to buying the sequel and playing through that a few times as well. I recommend you buy this even if you're like me and you don't like reading because you control the some parts of the story to be how you would like it.
Great game, but frustrating
I was really digging the game, until I came to the supply depot. Every time I purchased something from there, it took my money, but never rewarded me with the item in my inventory. I fought through the first mission without any weapons, but once I got to the second opportunity to use the supply depot, I had 29 dollari, and couldn't buy anything. Great game otherwise
