"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
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.
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 description 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) and music by David Wise (Donkey Kong Country).
"The Shamutanti Hills" is Part 1 of 4. Part 2, "Kharé: Cityport of Traps", is out now, and will load all of your completed Part 1 games to continue your adventure. Part 3 is coming later this year (but while you wait, check out our new game, 80 DAYS).

FINALLY! It's Free 👏
I "bumped" this app on Apps Gone Free years ago, and I guess someone finally listened ;) I had been hoping to try this game out, as I am unfamiliar with the books & didn't really know what to expect. Especially now that Inkle has released a 4th app in the Sorcery series, I think it is wise to have freed up the 1st one! I have yet to start it (downloading now), but if it is as good as I think it might be... *then* I'll be willing to fork over for the rest of the series (& I will update my review)!! It's always a good idea to give patrons a taste of your wares. If the product is great, people will return... again & again. 😁
Thank you, inkle!!❣️!
I did not die my first time through, and if u did the game in an hour something is wrong, there are 41 spells it took me that long to look over all the spells I would need to use during the journey, you need to carefully read the text to figure out the most appropriate spell, the name of the game is sorcery so it is best to use ur magic not just fight, even when u do use ur sword u need to read the text to help figure out the best stance to take. Overall I really loved the game and I am moving onto part 2. This is like a tabletop rpg, d and d type game, decision based, forcing u to think and take your time. Highly recommend this game.
Sorcery is a pretty fun game. I got about 2-3 hours out of it just from doing one blind playthrough before doing a few more to explore the other choices. This game gives a nice bit of freedom in how you play, you can be a goodie two-shoes, a total jerk, or somewhere in between, so you're not stuck playing the same, static MC every playthrough. The way magic is used in this game is also an interesting twist, and being able to reverse mistakes without having to completely restart is a welcomed feature, especially when you're just trying to explore alternatives.
