Choose Your Path Mobile Game

Game Image

The Siege of the Necromancer by Tin Man Games

My Rating: 1 of 5 stars

I have to admit, I had a certain fascination to playing what promised to be an interactive fantasy gamebook. I was hoping for pictures, and moving elements. For instance when you click loot the big chest, I would expect to see a dice roll, then a graphic of you succeeding/failing to open a chest using whatever bonus it is you've just rolled. What I did not expect is essentially an ebook, in which you click a link to the page your path is on, much like when you turn to a page in a physical version. There are other elements which are slightly more interesting, though the combat mechanic seems to be just a dice roll and the option of Attack or Defend.

I think that I'm mostly just dissapointed by how much you have to read. Don't get me wrong, I love reading, but on a mobile platform, audio and video would work so much better. I can't be too disheartened, as I have another 11 or so games to play courtesy of the latest Humble Mobile Bundle, which of course not only allows you to buy great games at great prices, but also allows you to set where your money goes, giving to both developers and worthwhile causes too.
