"Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time writing a review when I should really just be pointing at a game and demanding that people play it. This is one of those times. Steve Jackson's Sorcery! is an absolutely marvellous fantasy storybook adventure. Lushly illustrated and expertly told, it should not be missed by anyone even remotely interested in the genre." -- Gamezebo
"Let’s not mince words here... Sorcery’s unique blend of tabletop-like roleplaying (including an incredible combat system quite unlike anything I’ve seen before), and elaborate branching pathways with custom scripts preserving the feeling of Steve Jackson’s work make me now want to… no, HAVE TO acquire an iOS device" - Just Press Start
From legendary designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux), and Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone); and inkle, the studio behind the award-winning, App Store featured Frankenstein, Sorcery! is an interactive adventure like never before.
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, and in combat, the action is description on the fly based on how you play.
Featuring original illustrations by John Blanche, new character art by Eddie Sharam (DC Comics), an interactive map by Mike Schley (Wizards of the Coast) and music by David Wise (Donkey Kong Country).
"The Shamutanti Hills" is Part 1 of 4. Part 2, "Kharé: Cityport of Traps", is out now, and will load all of your completed Part 1 games to continue your adventure. Part 3 is coming later this year (but while you wait, check out our new game, 80 DAYS).
Minor fixes for those having trouble with their Cloud Saves.
Ratings and Reviews
Have found no variance from the original hard copy to this format. The sound effects add 2 the experience. A hands-down must for a fan of Steve Jackson.
The inclusive spell book is a bonus only a true fan would appreciate. Highly recommend.
Bug (please respond)
Love the game but whenever I go to cast a spell, a weird character that looks like an omega symbol replaces some letters... it’s not super detrimental, but I screw up spells all the time exploring every town and mine and death trap this wonderful game offers.
Not a complete game
This was not worth 5 bucks. What little was there was fun, but there was only an hour or so of game play! When you buy this game, you’re offered a link to buy all the other Sorcery games that are out... but they’re all the same game, just another teeny map!
Long story short, when you play you’re sent on an epic quest, and you don’t even make it out of sight of your starting point!
This was a waste of money.
Also, for such a limited game, it eats up a lot of battery time.
