That's not the Wizard of Oz! As with all Tin Man Gamebooks and Fighting Fantasy adventures, these are truly magical. You can tell a lot of hard work goes into them. Worth every penny, and even more so now that they've updated the books to the latest engine.
Great! Like the other GBs from this dev, this is a great story! I like how it starts out differently than the others, where you can customize your character's equipment from the start. I felt it was a little easier than some of the other GBs (like 2 or 5). About the dice randomizing someone mentioned - unless you're playing with quick dice, you have a lot of control over what is rolled for yourself and the enemy...if you choose to have that control (e.g., you have a split second before the die falls to toss it again, which is what I do).
Very good with one problem Very good, just like the previous ones. However, after I bought the shiel in the begining, my defense doesn't seem to go above 1. Love to see this fixed! Happens on an Asus TF700 with the latest stock firmware.
Poor Randomiser The book is lovely. Everything is alright. But I've reached the point in this book whereby the enemy very constantly rolls a highest 6 or 5, and there is just no way around to a victory. Seems like there is no true random generator in place. Disappointed to be set up like this.
Another great gamebook! Thanks for making these books. I would like to see a landscape mode, sometime.
!!!!!!! GAMEBOOK ADVENTURES ARE THE BEST GAMEBOOKS I EVER PLAYED BeSIDES THE LONEWOLF SERIES. I HOPE YIU CONTINUE TO PRODUCE SUCH AMAZING GAMEBOOKS!

Also updated the version number to bring it in line with other platforms
