"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).

If you like the genre

Then this is a great and intuitive game. I was a bit sad at how short the game was since it was so pricey. You'd expect it to have been finished for this price not make you buy another 3 parts just to finish the story. I hope they release the next parts as UPDATES not entirely new apps. If they do than definitely buy cuz it will be worth, if not, a lot to pay for such a short experience.

Start of an epic series

For some reason I kind of glossed over Sorcery! when it first came out, but after it was recommended to me I gave it a go and I’ve fallen in love. The story starts off a little cheesy and cliched, but it gets better and by the end of the first instalment you’ll be begging for more (at least I was anyway).

As some have said the first book is on the short side, but it’s still worth playing. I think that’s why they bundled the second book with the first on PC, do I don’t know why they haven’t done so here. It makes sense to bundle all the books together and it’s probably one of the few cases where In-App-Purchsing is beneficial.

So it was probably fortuitous I skipped it early on, so I can play through all four without having to wait.

Short but great!

Do you know how long I've been looking for a phone game that's engrossing and deep but can be played in short bursts in portrait mode (as befits public transport and idle moments)? Finally, the perfect type of smartphone game!
