"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).

Liebevoll und originell umgesetzt, aber...

...für gut €5,- und einer Spielzeit von einer guten Stunde eine ziemliche Abzocke, wie ich finde! Schade.

Für Genrefreunde ein oböigatorischer Kauf

Vor rund 25 Jahren habe ich als Kind in der Schule Ian Livingstones Buch "Der Hexenmeister vom Flammenden Berg" vor der Klasse rezensiert. Sorcery! hebt das Genre auf aktuelle Medien wie iPad & Co.

Die Präsentation des Spiels ist - für das Genre - ungeschlagen gut und atmosphärisch. Die Story lässt dem Spieler zahlreiche Wahlmöglichkeiten, erscheint aber hier und da dann doch sehr linear. Das Kampfsystem konnte mich nicht voll überzeugen, erscheint mir aber ein wenig fairer als der liebe Zufall beim Würfeln. Vielleicht ist es vermessen zu sagen, dass ich mir für den Preis (4-5 EUR) etwas mehr Spieldauer erwartet habe, allzu schnell ist man durch. Kritisch sehe ich auch die Rewind-Option wenn man etwas schief geht. Das macht das Spiel maximal frustfrei, nimmt aber auch etwas Salz aus der Suppe.

Egal: für Freunde des Genrey heisst es unbedingt zugreifen!
