"Cesaro Cortez, a famed explorer-conquistador, set out three years ago on his last great expedition. His ships never returned to an Orlandrian port and he was feared lost until a mysterious cargo appeared recently in Miramar. The nature of this cargo will put Orlandes in jeopardy, sending you on an epic journey to find Cortez, save the country and face your darkest fear!"
"For those of us who grew up with the Fighting Fantasy books, this is almost like a homecoming. It’s a great modern equivalent to the books many of us loved as youngsters, with the same kind of attention to detail and thrilling fantastical touches that made these adventures so enjoyable. A splendidly written interactive fantasy story that will keep you hooked until the very end." - POCKETGAMER (8 out of 10 review)
"...a series of lovingly crafted and extremely well-written interactive fantasy novels. It's surprisingly engrossing stuff, the economically written narrative packing in masses of detail, while rattling out a pacey, involving story." - THE GUARDIAN
"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read – not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM
"After finally making my way through the series’ newest release, I’m somewhat ashamed that I’ve waited so long to take the plunge..." - 148APPS

Entertaining spider-filled gamebook
The seventh adventure in Tim Man's series of gamebook adventures continues to build the world from previous books but it can be picked up without knowing the others. This time it's a sea voyage to a jungle covered island to stop the eponymous Spider God taking over Orlandes.
This app sees the series get some interface polish: the art is full colour and the achievement list expanded. The writing is excellent and the music is great. The spider theme is fun and thoroughly maintained throughout with all sorts of eight-legged menaces waiting to kill you, you can recruit allies to help in some of the tricky fights.
Unfortunately , the gameplay aspect is difficult with tough fights and far too many stat checks, especially those based on the new phobia skill. This does detract from an otherwise fun adventure.
It is worth adding to a gamebook collection, but the poor attention to detail in the mechanics and design make it less enjoyable than others in the series.
Another fantastic gamebook
Brilliant. I'm love the gamebook series. I've now got all 7 and every single one of them is great, you can tell that each book had been made with a love for the genre as the level of detail and polish is excellent. I remember loving choose your own adventure books when I was younger and the gamebook series does an amazing job of bringing them to modern day standards.
Update. Many thanks for the new update, now all my game books sit in perfect order. :-)
