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"

For those who are interested I'm working on a sequel (simultaneous release for Android and iphone). Although it does take place after the first gamebook (and references it in places) it is entirely self contained. Updates will be made on Twitter #JudgeDreddTheDark:

Also the Android version of Countdown Sector 106 should be early next year.

Hmmm as much as I love game book adventures I'm not really into the sci-if setting and judge dread is the book I've read the least.
Nothing against the book or story I just prefer my fantasy stuff.
It was the same with infinite universe, I only read that once.

Having said that I love game books so I'll still pick it up and at least give it a go I'm all for this kind of game/book on iOS.

Its Dredd not Dread

Fair enough, i do love fantasy settings but to me Judge Dredd is a classic sci-fi character and its from the UK. 2000ad has been going since the 70's which is quite rare nowadays with so many old magazines/comics etc disappearing.

I'm happy these gamebooks are so popular on iOS, its given them a new lease of life. In the old days you had the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks which were superb, now playing them and books similar such as this on iOS works so well. Looking forward to this sequel
