App description: Drokk! It's an adventure game. It's an interactive book. It's an RPG. You are Judge Dredd, the toughest judge to patrol Mega-City One, a vast futuristic city, set in the 22nd Century!

** REVIEWS **

With a new Judge Dredd movie coming out, this Gamebook really fired me up and got me in the mood. And, because each time you read the book it has the potential for a different storyline and ending, Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 is a steal - WIRED

With their latest release, Tin Man Games have proven that they can handle existing characters just as well as they do heroes of their own creation. Do yourself a favor quit reading my words and start reading theirs. 4.5 out of 5 stars! GAMEZEBO

Funny, rewarding, and pleasantly violent, Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 replaces the rattle of gunfire with the rattle of dice, and it just works. 8 out of 10! POCKETGAMER SILVER AWARD!

It all makes for a game thats tough to criticize. As an adventure game book, Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 succeeds very well and I suspect Judge Dredd fans will adore it all the more. 4 out of 5 stars! 148 APPS

By Grud, its good. 8 out of 10! STARBURST MAGAZINE

You, the reader, control the direction of the story by making decisions for Dredd on each page, and choosing your path. Using a realistic dice-based battle system, you get to fight your enemies in exciting shootouts and roll your fate, as you use your array of skills against a variety of perps in an epic storyline.

"Sector 106 of Mega-City One is short of senior Street Judges and only the most experienced Judges have been reassigned to fill this shortfallforemost among them yourself, Dredd! What begins as a routine patrol arresting juves and skysurfers, turns into a race against time, as mysterious "Voices of Dredd" find their way into the hands of the local perps. Riding your Lawmaster bike and armed with your trusty Lawgiver, you must pit yourself against Sector 106's brutal criminal underworld. Quick Dredd! The countdown has begun"

Bought this asap ! Huge Judge Dredd fan, you may remember the Stallone Judge Dredd film back in the mid 90's, did have some bright moments but a lot of bad ones though. In the comic you never see Dredds face as he doesnt remove his helmet but of course in the Stallone one he does. Theres a new film coming out in September (Dredd) which looks great and seems much more faithful to the comic series.

Anyway onto the game, i've got a lot of the Gamebook adventures, was over the moon when i heard there was gonna be a Judge Dredd game. Nice illustrations, so far from what i've played its a great little story.

Hope it does well for Tinman as i would love to see more 2000ad gamebooks

Looks interesting enough to give it a try. Looking forward to see if the Game does live up to my expectation.

I'm very interested in reading your thoughts about this. The concept piqued my interest, and Judge Dredd is one of my favorite comic book characters, but I'd rather hear some opinions before spending the 4$.

Hadn't actually expected this one this week, but I'm hardly going to complain, especially as I'm due to pick it up gratis.

Now this looks interesting. I grow tired of all the endless running games and cutesy 2 minutes of attention games that constantly come out. Sure, some are fun, but this is what I'd truly like to see more of. Something different for a change.

Interested in impressions as well. I held off on the Fighting Fantasy games but I like the theme here better.

A great FF-book. The way you can customize everything in this games is truly amazing. Lots of fonts, sizes, horisontal, vertical, sound effects, music, bookmarks as save points (amount available specified by the level of difficulty you choose).

A very nice and polished package. I am not far in the story, but it seems well written, in e spirit of 2000AD and again the whole interface make reading/playing this a joy.
