Yeah, I had to stop myself on that one and realize not only how old I have gotten but it as well, how niche it is [it was a British comic published under various publishers so for us U.S folks who got the imports and redistributes under different publisher, it was still a smallish but loyal fanbase], and so on! Even with the crappy Stallone movie not many people seem to know about Judge Dredd and unfortunately I think it did more harm then good! Well at least the new movie [Entitled "DREDD" with Karl Urban]looks like a more faithful representation of the character! And IDW just announced they are launching Judge Dredd again with some new writing talent and artist team that look to have a good handle on the universe! I honestly am looking forward to all of it! Between this book, new comics and the new movie, I need to dig out my collection and reread some old issues! Lots of Dredd love going around lately!


As for the game book, it is awesome, the improvements are noted and feel right, and the writing is spot on. If any felt slightly let down by Infinite Universe [GB8] they should surely look to this as a worthy redeemer and dare I say, better book than even their older stuff too! I can't recommend it more, and even more so for the non fan as the setting is so interesting and stark that it just makes for good writing!

Well I'm not old yet, I don't think, getting there at least, but loving this app. Sad to say I haven't read a book or even a comic in a few years, but this was an excellent place to start. The writing was immersive and the interactive nature of it is allot of fun. Its not a video game per say but deffinately holds it's own. A bit pricey maybe but a worthy purchase for anyone willing to put the time in. I hope another sale comes soon cause I'd love a chance to grab the collection at bit lower price. I'll be springing for their new releases for sure, can't wait.

I started off with one book then ended up getting all of them and ne'er looked back. The way I usually look at the price is "well it's less than an actual book, or a magazine that I'd throw away" so if you like the gamebooks there a pretty easy purchase to justify.

Thanks for impressions. Looks like I am going to have to get this. I was a huge Judge Dredd and 2000AD fan back in the day. It's funny now remembering reading those comics back in the late 70's/early 80's wondering what would the year 2000 bring

As a purchaser of prior works from Tin Man Games Ive snagged this too, as the futuristic setting is a bit more appealing to me overall. You Guys basically said it all already: The writing is top notch in this, the sound adds to the atmosphere and Ive encountered no bugs thus far. Besides, the absence of IAP is always a plus for me.

Bought and rated 5 Stars in the Austrian App Store. Keep em coming!

If you liked Judge Dredd then make sure you checkout Tin Man's other Gamebook Adventures, i've got all of them (can tell i'm a bit of a fan !). So happy hes got the Fighting Fantasy rights now, looking forward to those in the near future

Awesome Snagged a copy of this a few days ago and have just about unlocked every achievement.

Unfortunately, I might have come across a bug. There's one picture I can't seem to unlock even though I always see it on subsequent playthroughs Goldbling's Dispute

There's also another (possible) bug which allowed me to easily complete the game on my first (or was it the second?) playthrough :P I only had the incomplete blueprints, but the game thought that I had the annotated diagram. I was also allowed to choose the option about having neither document. The final crucial roll also allowed me to choose any option -- even if I didn't make the required total

By the way, does anybody know how to get the perp rap sheet for Jonas Tuko?
