The land of Kakhabad is a wilderness - a ruined desert, a tangled forest, cruel mountains and fissures, all guarded by seven fearsome serpents. But you must cross this land if you are to reach Mampang and the Crown of Kings. Rely on your wits or fight your way through - play with honour, or lie, cheat and steal - the choices are all yours.

From the creators of TIME's Game of the Year 2014, "80 Days", comes the third instalment in the acclaimed Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series. An interactive story told through thousands of choices, all of which are remembered, where no two adventures are the same.

Adapted and expanded from the million-selling gamebook series by legendary game designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux) and co-creator of Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone).

Using inkle's unique inklewriter technology, the story is written in real-time, built around your choices and actions.

Editors’ Notes

This third installment of Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series sends your bold adventurer into the wild wastes of the Baklands, inhabited by all manner of strange folk, menacing monsters, and the dreaded Seven Serpents. An intoxicating mix of choose-your-own-adventure storytelling and fantasy gameplay, Sorcery! is an innovative digital adaptation of the beloved pen-and-paper adventure gamebooks of the ’80s, requiring clever thinking and cunning tactics.

Even better

I went over the four apps in my review of the first book, I’ll just add a few things. This third volume is again exceptionally well done. The story is complex, mysterious, and difficult enough to keep you entertained for hours and hours. Each volume seems to get even better. This one is smart, well-written and incredibly enhanced compared to the original book. This is simply one the best mobile games I have ever played—and undoubtedly the best RPG game on a mobile platform I have ever seen. In fact, it’s the first mobile game I actually advised my friends to buy! As far as I am concerned, it should live in the top ten games in the Apple store.

Found a bug

Great game, I’ve spent hours on it!

I did find a couple bugs though. In Elthera’s cave, when you “Look at ropes” it says I’ve found a rope ladder and put it in my pack. But it’s never obtained.

Second, there’s random treasures to be found in the swamp, or stolen from Fenestra. All of them only ever give me Jewels of Gold, even though I already have one. They’re supposed to give items one doesn’t already have.
