Loved this game! I will definitely be picking up the rest of the series. This game is short, but it saves your progress from one game to the next, so I could definitely see myself replaying this game later on to get myself a really good start for the sequels. The high quality of the writing and graphics makes a great game experience. Quality over quantity for certain. Perfect for the working man.
I thought of the concept of the game was really great. But in the end it was incredibly short. I do not understand why it is not just one game instead of four pieces that you have to individually Buy. Yes I could play this app over and over and hit different things but in the end nothing really happened. It was just the very beginning of the story.
The good reviews are if you got it for free, not worth buying at all. Very short. Also the results of your actions are pretty much random, there aren't any clues to what will result from your actions.
I got this free and it is one of the best mobile games I have ever played. It was just difficult enough to be challenging, but not frustrating. I had a feeling of accomplishment when I finished the game. It took me about three hours. All of the features worked well, including rewind, which some people had a problem with, according to other reviews. Looks like the dev updated it recently and it is now (6-4-17) being offered free, as part 4 of the series is out now. I did decide to purchase the next one (Sorcery! 2). Reviewers said that was longer. If you can get Sorcery! free, great. If not, try for a sale, unless $5 for a three hour mobile game is ok for you.
Short game, but well done. I got the game for free (sale) so no complaints there. But if I had paid 5 bucks for it I would have been angry, because the game was completed so quickly, and it would cost 15 more dollars to complete the story. (Each add-on is currently 5 bucks)
Downloaded book 1 for free. Finished in 2h. Feels more like a chapter rather than a full game. $5 per book is overpriced. You can find better and longer games for less. I enjoy the short game play, but will not buying the remaining books.
