Steve Jackson Sorcery

I loved Sorcery! when I reviewed it back in May, describing it as a game that combines classic fantasy story, told as a ‘create your own adventure’, loaded up with fantasy RPG gameplay, with a unique and engaging visual style. As we await the November Part 2 release, Inkle has released a major update making Part 1 worth playing again!

Here are the major new additions to Sorcery! Part 1:
Female player character: Who says quests are just for boys?! Now play as either a male or a female hero, with dynamic artwork and text supporting your chosen gender.
Improved magic system: What sorcery is this? Look to the stars for answers! The new 3D spellcasting system is gorgeous and easy to use, eliminating the need to page through the in-game spellbook.
Fist-fighting mode: Some fights just have to be settled with your fists…
Simple saved game transfer: To continue the adventure, players with the old version of Sorcery! Part 1 will need to find and type in the name of their saved game. But with the update installed, the Sorcery! Part 2 app can grab this data directly — no hunting and pecking required.

Sorcery! Part 2 will include all of these features, plus it doubles the narrative content of the first game, introduces new enemy types, more complex story branches, a detailed ‘building by building’ city map, and other gameplay enhancements. You can choose to play Part 2 on its own, or as a continuing adventure from Part 1.

Learn more at the official site, or head to iTunes to grab Part 1 for $4.99!

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
