Even if you've read the cult classic Sorcery! gamebooks, you've never experienced a story like this. Developed by British indie studio inkle, Steve Jackson's Sorcery! for iOS is a brand new type of game that merges an epic fantasy plotline with an incredible amount of player choice. You decide which path to take on a treacherous quest to reclaim the prized Crown of Kings -- and the story writes itself around you.
On this fantastic journey, you'll explore a gorgeously illustrated world populated with dangerous foes and fabulous beasts. Puzzle your way out of sticky situations. Compete in strategic turn-based combat or try your luck with magic. The game remembers every single decision you make and uses them to pen your own distinct adventure.
"I am blown away by what inkle have done with Sorcery! Previous digital conversions recreated the paperback experience on the small screen, but this treatment is a radical new approach," says Steve Jackson, co-creator of the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series and author of the original Sorcery! Together, Jackson and inkle added a whole new dimension to the experience, with thousands of extra choices, an original combat system that procedurally describes the fight as you play, and a 3D map over which the journey is made -- alongside 48 spells, 77 original line illustrations, and all the characters, tricks, and traps of the original adventure.
