Amazing blend of RPG and "choose-your-own-adventure" style game. Storytelling is fantastic, combat is challenging, and great flavour added by artwork. A little short, but I have read the subsequent chapters are much longer. The only thing that prevented me giving it 5 stars is that the audio was crackly on my 6P on 7.0.
Bad audio Really impressed but have to turn sound off due to bad crackling audio. Nexus 6p Android 7.0
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.
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.
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.
Sorcery! is a classic and this is the definitive version First, I'm surprised at how well the writing has stood the test of time - I played Sorcery! as a kid in the late 80s or early 80s. But this is also a statement on how you remake a Choose Your Own Adventure book as a video game. While I have a couple of minor kibbles with the interface (the spellbook and the spellcasting), this game creates a unique way of exploring what was once a book and see the alternatives to the decisions you made. The combat is a nice little minigame also, better than dice.
Fixed some potential bugs when progressing onto the next game
