"Wonderful for genre fans and novices alike" - 4.5/5 (TouchArcade)

"An excellent experience" - 90% (4Players.de)

Kharé is brimming with things to do and creatures to meet. Visit the Festival of Thieves, battle a ghost, escape from slavers, gamble your fortune at the Halls of Vlada, drink at the tavern, worship strange Gods, and much much more. Will you uncover the secrets of the city, overthrow the Council, destroy an invading army, or leave Kharé to burn?

From legendary designer Steve Jackson, co-founder of Lionhead Studios (with Peter Molyneux), and Fighting Fantasy and Games Workshop (with Ian Livingstone), and designed and adapted by inkle, the app uses inklewriter technology to tell your journey in real-time, shaping the story around your choices. The text itself changes based on how you play and what you do. In combat, the action is described on the fly based on how you play.

Featuring original illustrations by John Blanche and maps by Mike Schley (Wizards of the Coast).

"Kharé: Cityport of Traps" is Part 2 of 4. Part 1 is out now and Part 3, "The Seven Serpents", is coming later this year. (But while you wait, check out our new game, 80 DAYS.)

Looking forward to this. So can you buy this from the first app ? Or is it only a totally seperate app ?

Either way i'll be getting this later. This was always my favourite of the Sorcery books (The third part - The Seven Serpents was even bigger if i remember right!)

Wee, finally – already downloaded and played for a bit. Kharé always felt like it was the undisputed favourite in the Sorcery! series – oddly enough, even people who didn't have the rest of the books or weren't into gamebooks in general still always seemed to own this particular one (especially odd given that this was the second book, and takes place in the middle of the story). To be honest, I can't even remember most of what happened in the other books, but several iconic moments immediately spring to mind with Kharé, among them the idol-kissing ritual and the Mantis Man.

I will repeat the one request I had regarding the first book, though, which is to hide the device status bar, as having it present it is unnecessary, distracting, and just looks unprofessional, like somebody simply forgot to disable it.

Can't hug every cat.

I missed the boat on these back in the day. After seeing all the buzz with the 1st entry I thought I might hold off and sink my teeth into it once this released. Looking forward to it!
