"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).
What's New in Version 1.6.1
Minor fixes for those having trouble with their Cloud Saves.
Only Gets Better...
People who are only playing the first part of this and giving up are not being patient.
It's a delightful epic that starts simply as a classic Choose Your Own Adventure but ends with surprisingly sophisticated gameplay.
$17 for all four parts, but more intricate story and character customization than $60 for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Fun text adventure
This is great if you are into pen&paper RPGs or other text based games like that. Yeah, okay, the game dynamics aren't great (why do I need to swipe after choosing an option?) - but hey, it doesn't make the game any less fun. It's a little bit short for what it costs but I've immediately bought the second part - I wanna keep going!
Not so good
I had high hopes for this game. I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid, and expected a fun nostalgia trip. This game did not that meet those expectations. The story is weak: I finished the game in about 40 minutes and have no idea what the point was...to get a crown? I feel like they took one game and cut it into 4 parts to make extra money. Truthfully, I regret spending the cash on this game and feel quite cheated.
