Book 1 is a fantastic starting point for this new hybrid story/puzzle/game genre, and from what I've heard, the people creating it are just getting started. The blend of narrative plus riddles plus table-top gaming is excellent. There is enough storyline to make the battles meaningful, and enough fights to make completing this chapter of the story a challenge. You do have to keep your eyes open for places to use the spells that are available, but that is actually part of the fun---reading between the lines and understanding more than is said. When I first looked at it, I thought it was just another choose-your-own-adventure, but the Narborion Saga is turning into so much more.
App quits on both Naborian 1+2 App opens to title page but shuts down and goes back to my main screen. Please fix because I was planning on buying these books. I will not buy the books until both 1+2 open correctly.
I love the game.. I got stuck for a while.. But i tried searching for clues on the fb page.. Haha.. Great time consumer..
Bookmarks Game is great, but no save option on free mode. It was all trial and error like the old games before the free game websites are made.
Not Worth Its Weight in Gold... No matter what combination I use, I die within the first or second fight in the story. The story/gameplay would be awesome if I actually got to play and survive past the first couple of pages. The prices are outrageous. You shouldn't have to pay for bookmarks. Paying for weapons and items is a little more understandable, but paying to save your game? That's ridiculous. And during battle, I missed more than a blind man at a shooting range. How can my character be a Champion when I can't kill anything?
An enjoyable challenge In response to other comments. You don't need IAPs to win the game. Bookmarks cost a tiny amount of gold and you'll probably only use 3-4 in your game since the game autosaves constantly so you won't lose your in game progress; bookmarks are there for if you made a big mistake and need to backtrack a bit. Yes there is the odd glitch but when I reported them, there was an update the next day fixing it. It's a hard game, but a fun one with challenging puzzles along the way to keep your head well scratched.
