App description: Curse of the Assassin is written and designed by S.P. Osborne, author of GA1, and takes you back to the familiar surrounds of Orlandes City where you pick up your life some time after the events in An Assassin in Orlandes. Youve risen through society after dealing with Eltane and saving the city, capturing the affections of the Dukes daughter along the way. The mysterious death of friend arouses your suspicions and once again you find yourself at the heart of conspiracy that takes you back to your home village and a meeting with your old adventuring party from your youth.

An exciting mystery adventure thriller races from Orlandes City through to the wilds of Orlandes, into the mines of Kern Badenach and even out to sea! Pirkka Harvala, who previously illustrated An Assassin in Orlandes and Catacombs of the Undercity, returns for his third gamebook and this time his wonderful artwork appears in colour for the first time!

** REVIEWS **

"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM

"Like the previous entries in the series, this release doesn't really put a foot wrong, and serves as a fine tribute to the classic dice-and-pencil quests we used to know and love during our misspent youths." - POCKET GAMER (8/10 - Silver Award)

"Telling a great story of murder and intrigue, Curse of the Assassin is a highly enjoyable adventure gamebook from the iOS masters of the genre." - 148 APPS (4/5)

"All put together, Curse of the Assassin is a fun experience. It works as a stand-alone story, but this is actually a sequel, although upon completion you may be compelled to try its predecessor, and all others of its like." - DIGITALLY DOWNLOADED (4.5/5)

"I've had an absolutely fabulous time playing through them, and highly encourage anyone interested in fantasy novels to check 'em out." - TOUCH ARCADE

Just started on the first gamebook and also bought this, but yet to play due to wanting to finish the original, from what I've read So far I would agree. I'll be looking at getting the rest for sure, nicely written, interesting and artwork is great.

As far as retina goes I'd rather have that, HoH was initially compressed pretty badly, being a realitivly static game crispness is probably of a higher priority for me than something that were in motion.

Yeah, sorry about that, the HOH images have alpha and the compression settings for the initial release were incorrectly switched to PVRTC which turned them to oatmeal :-) That was my fault, so hopefully we wont have that problem again in the future, but if I mess it up again, dont hesitate to let me know and I will fix it :-)

Cheers!

Is there any reason why my character's fitness is permanently stuck at 7? He had 10 at the start, then some event at the beginning caused it to drop to 7... Now I'm almost done the book and it's still at 7??

Hmmm. Sounds like a temporary fitness loss that isn't being reset. We'll look into it for you. Sorry about that!

It is in the location of the Death Hawks' first real adventure. It depends on who your travelling partner is as to where exactly in that location it can be found, but stay aware around any goblyn trickmasters or banditos.
