Product Description

An epic adventure through a land of monsters, traps, and magic.

From legendary designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux), and Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone); and inkle, the studio behind the award-winning, App Store featured Frankenstein, Sorcery! is an interactive adventure like never before.

Praise for the iOS edition:

"You should choose to own this adventure" -- Eurogamer

"Inkle's adaptation of Sorcery! takes the genre to a whole new level" -- Kotaku

"This is some of 2013′s best interactive storytelling" -- IGN UK

"Beautifully realised ... this gripping tale has us well and truly hooked" -- Pocket Gamer (Gold Award)

"Incredibly impressed" -- Touch Arcade

"Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time writing a review when I should really just be pointing at a game and demanding that people play it. This is one of those times. Steve Jackson's Sorcery! is an absolutely marvellous fantasy storybook adventure. Lushly illustrated and expertly told, it should not be missed by anyone even remotely interested in the genre." -- Gamezebo

"Let’s not mince words here... Sorcery’s unique blend of tabletop-like roleplaying (including an incredible combat system quite unlike anything I’ve seen before), and elaborate branching pathways with custom scripts preserving the feeling of Steve Jackson’s work make me now want to… no, HAVE TO acquire an iOS device" - Just Press Start

The app uses inklewriter technology to tell your journey in real-time, shaping the story around your choices. The text itself changes based on how you play and what you do, and in combat, the action is described on the fly based on how you play.

Featuring original illustrations by John Blanche, new character art by Eddie Sharam (DC Comics), an interactive map by Mike Schley (Wizards of the Coast).

"The Shamutanti Hills" is Part 1 of 4. Part 2, "Kharé: Cityport of Traps", is coming soon to the Kindle Store! (Part 2 will load all of your completed Part 1 games to continue your adventure.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic book transfered to Kindle 26 Mar 2014

Great for children and adults alike. I'd recommend this to this anybody and if you see it come up as a free app then certainly grab it.

If you have read/play any of the fighting fantasy books by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson and enjoyed them then you will like this. This is actually the Sorcery book converted to app which works really nicely. I read/play the book back in the 80's and enjoyed it though I found it to be a bit on the short side. Same for this app which is why I've given in 4 stars. If it had been cheaper or free then it would have got 5 stars! Also we are waiting for the next 3 books to hit kindle. I would have preferred they had combined the 4 books into one app, but that's just me. Anyway, it's a nice game and it's great to play a bit of nostalgia for an oldie like me, but it's also good for children. Makes a person actually read rather than just tapping a screen mindlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I love this app it's just like the books, I would really recommend getting it. Been waiting forever for I to come out on kindle and finally it has! Great little game and when people say it's 'Too short' it's not it took me 3 days to complete so if you want a "Pick your Path" themed app you defiantly should get this one.

A wonderful adaptation of the Steve Jackson choose your own adventure book. I've been waiting ages for this game to come to Kindle and it's well worth £3.00. Can't wait for part 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trip down memory lane 18 Mar 2014
By Pete
It was really great to come across this app. Took me back a few years but with a real 21st Century twist! A really well plotted adventure and a really interesting combat system make it very addictive.
I see the sequel is already available on apple products and i can only hope that it'll be coming to android soon (like now, today please!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game just lacking a little 21 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a fab adventure dice roll of a game reminds of the books I read as a lad. graphics and story are exciting. Only 2 small issues, little pricey for an App and a little too short, just as I was getting into it, it looks like I will need to splash out on another 3 billies. still worth it? "go left if you think it is worth it, go right if you think it is not" !!!!!!!
