Worth the money

The simple writing style makes it easy to understand and the stats are relatively easy to grasp. Also incorporates some nice curve balls where you sometimes just have to use logic instead of pure stat based decisions. Overall, the high replay ability and simple style of the story boded really well with me. If you’re someone looking for extravagant writing and “big words” I would not recommend this. However, if you’re looking for simplicity and a nice story with high replay ability, then this is one of the best.

Incredible, a hidden gem

Life of a Wizard was a chance buy for me. Little did I know it was a very immersive CYOA with countless decisions. I was fortunate enough to almost always have at least one option for every check on my first run (thanks summoning) but I do wish there were a rewind option. I know why there isn't but I feel like it would be beneficial in case of a mis-click or if the results weren't what you wanted. Regardless of this I wholeheartedly recommend this game.

Not Worth the Money

It’s a cool game with interesting choices, though it’s not easy to maneuver. I wish there was a rewind button, because there were several times I had misclicked. The game doesn’t last very long, and visually it’s not very pleasing. I wish I had read more into the game before buying it. It also would help if there was music. It was soundless gameplay, and the end of it was the furthest from fun.

Buy this if you don’t care about wasting your money for maybe half an hour of gameplay.

Don’t buy this if you realize the same (or a better) effect could be achieved from finding a dungeons and dragons campaign to join.
