Kharé is brimming with things to do and creatures to meet. Visit the Festival of Thieves, battle a ghost, escape from slavers, gamble your fortune at the Halls of Vlada, drink at the tavern, worship strange Gods, and much much more. Will you uncover the secrets of the city, overthrow the Council, destroy an invading army, or leave Kharé to burn?
From legendary designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux), and Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone), and designed and adapted by inkle, the app uses inklewriter technology to tell your journey in real-time, shaping the story around your choices. The text itself changes based on how you play and what you do. In combat, the action is described on the fly based on how you play.
Featuring original illustrations by John Blanche and maps by Mike Schley (Wizards of the Coast).
"Kharé: Cityport of Traps" is Part 2 of 4. Part 1 is out now and Part 3, "The Seven Serpents", is coming later this year. (But while you wait, check out our new game, 80 DAYS.)
What's New in Version 1.2.1
Fixed a bug that stopped the map displaying on some older devices.
Wonderful evolution of interactive fiction!
As a long time lover of both exploring puzzle adventures (i.e. Myst, Riven, The Room, Drawn: the Painted Tower) and Interactive Fiction (IF) (Infocom's Zork and the Frotz' IF engine), I have struggled to find worthy contenders that have made the transition to the mobile app store (feel free to make suggestions!). Inkle has done an excellent job bringing Jackson's Fighting Fantasy books to the new millennium and the mobile app store. Sorcery 2 is even more immersive and 'classic IF' than it's predecessor, placing you in a more non-linear environment that requires you to wander around much more to solve the puzzles and reach your objectives. The many sub plots and side stories (which culminate in a climactic twistable ending) contribute to a greater immersive experience and preserves the feel and culture of IF but makes it fresh and vibrant once again.
If you love any of the games I've mentioned above, then you won't be disappointed with Inkle's work with Steve Jackson's Sorcery 2 (or 1 or 3 for that matter)
Great! Better than the first one.
This is a really fun game. It is the more the urn version of a choose your own adventure book that also has a fighting system. It's well written and has beautiful art. I also founded it to be very interactive.
This second game in the trilogy is way longer than the first one. It has good replayability value and is more fun. If you like choose your own adventure games I highly recommend it.
When I thought it couldn't get any better ...
... it does. This game is an example of how apps should be made. Absolutely beautiful. Captivating. And to top it off, this game has a great deal more replay value than the first game in the series. Well done.
