Choose Your Own Adventure Books Finding New Life on iOS Devices
Submitted by Sammy Snyder on
A new iOS gamebook that utilizes the popular choose your own adventure format is getting rave reviews from both critics and app users. The new app is based on the 1983 Fighting Fantasy series Sorcery! written by Steve Jackson. The app is an interactive game/book that utilizes inklewriter technology to change the story around a user's choices while he or she is playing along.
The reader must make decisions based on a real-time story. The book's text and story line changes based on how the reader reacts to certain situations, and by what they do in combat. For example, players can choose to engage other characters or avoid them, and decide what towns to visit and what paths to take. Users can also cast spells and rewind the story if they don't like their decision or accidentally die.
