** REVIEWS **

"Another solid turn from Tin Man, Legacy of Dorn uses its licence well, and shakes things up enough to make it feel fresh." - Pocket Gamer - 8/10 - Silver Award

"Legacy Of Dorn: Herald Of Oblivion is an enjoyable, creepy adventure with a great setting and a fun combat system." - Touch Arcade - 4/5 stars

"Anyone who loves all things Warhammer, or is into sci-fi literature of any sort, should snag this ASAP." - MacNN

You are a veteran Space Marine of the Imperial Fists Chapter. Equipped with powerful Terminator armour and armed with the deadliest weapons that the Adeptus Astartes wield, you are a symbol of the Emperor's might. Trapped aboard the space hulk Herald of Oblivion and the only survivor of your squad, you must fight your way through the aliens and heretics that infest the star vessel and find a way to escape the horror and return to your Chapter.

** FEATURES **
Read the gamebook by transforming your iPhone or iPad into an Imperial Cogitator!
Holographic combat simulator brings the player face-to-face with the myriad of lifeforms on the space hulk!
Advance or retreat! Fire weapons from a distance, or move in for close combat.
Encounter Orks, Tyranids, Dark Eldar, Necrons and more as you explore the Herald of Oblivion.
Access the Xenos Archive to keep track of monstrous creatures you destroy.

Herald of Oblivion is adapted from the gamebook written by Jonathan Green and was originally published by Black Library/Games Workshop.

This is part one of the Legacy of Dorn trilogy. Part two, Pits of Commorragh, coming to the App Store in early 2016!

The flickering green does my eyeballs in. Seriously needs an edit too - I spotted "xenon" instead of "xenos" in about thirty seconds flat.

Gah! Naughty auto-correct in our gamebook editor being pesky at the last minute. We've just fixed that! If you go back to the main menu and let the app download an update they will all be fixed.

Sorry about that.

Hi! I am a huge fan of your games, bought this one as soon a i could, have almost all of them! I noticed a problem with FEAR, the music don't work in my iphone 6 with ios 9, but work in my ipad air 2 with ios 8! I don't tested with other games, but i am waiting to play after a possible fix. Do you guys are aware of the problem? Thanks! And sorry for any mistakes, english is not my native language!

Bah cup bah bush bah!

I'm friggin lovin' it. I love all things 40k...but some of the apps have been underwhelming...not this one! So fun, so far. Just into the first part of the hulk, Great writing and fun battle system. Also, this is my first buy from this company, definitely looking forward to trying other's in the future.

Thanks for the heads-up. We've actually just replicated this bug in the office so will add it to our bug list to sort out as soon as possible.

Cheers!
