Nice Story, Too Short I enjoyed this and liked the unusual mechanics. The setting was familiar and fantastic and I got several replays out of it. That I could do more than two full replays in under 3 hours with no rushing, guides, or otherwise was disappointing. It feels like a rip off that to get even half the story, I have to pay double. Make them a package for a lower price. Then I'll come back for the rest.
To those who say it's "overpriced"... I think it's easy to overlook the incredible value of this simple app. Not only is this title part of an artistic legacy that inspired series like Dark Souls, and some of the greatest minds in tabletop gaming, the production value of this game is absolutely breathtaking from the moment you begin. It feels like a living storybook and really takes full advantage of what the mobile platform has to offer. Give it a chance- it won't disappoint you.
I was expecting much more. Based on all the good reviews I was left expecting much more. The game is very short and very constricting in what you can do. I rewinded in every intersection just to read the alternative outcomes and locatio, even so, it's so, so short. It has nice narration and the drawings are beautiful. Even so a lot more to be desired. Ridiculously short, seems more like a Demo, considering its 5 dollars and there are 4. For less than 20 bucks you can buy games like Final Fantasy that are more than 50 hours of game.
Good but short (and not complete) Like the title say. Good writing, good design and good story. But the first part is finished rather quickly (even more than you think because this game is really immersing) and you have to buy sorcery 2 3 and 4. Great game nonetheless. Just be wary that it's just a part of a "big" game.
Great Design but Hollow I'm sure there's a lot of content for those willing to replay. Even so, the fights were too easy though the mechanic is neat, and there were no tough decisions to make. Never cast a single spell after leaving the starting zone. Point is, there may be a lot of content, but what I saw was low quality, so I'm not encouraged to see any more.
An evenings entertainment for a fair price This is a really good evenings questing for less than the price of a good bottle of ale. No ads, no priced upgrades, no costed cooldowns, just a fun story to immerse yourself in and wile away a couple of hours with. John Blanche artwork was a real bonus too!
Fixed a bug that could corrupt the saved game after rewinding.
