Oh, this was the other one I have the actual book of, but I might buy it anyway since it's much easier to play on my iPod. The magic system is a pretty cool addition to the series. Can't say much about the story or events since I didn't get too far, but it's a good book.

I don't know if anyone has played this at all but I seem to have encountered a bug close to the beginning. There's a bit with a Tall Man and Short Man arguing over the price of a dagger. If I end up in a fight against the Tall Man, it doesn't seem to recognise my victory and won't let me proceed. Anyone else have this happen?

I havn't played this particular book, but I know in the iPod version of Deathtrap Dungeon, pre-update it wouldn't recognize that I had an item that made me heat-resistant, and therefore wouldn't let me proceed along a certain path that required said item. It sounds like everyone has had some sort of issue with one book or another before it was updated. This'll probably be updated shortly, and that issue most likely fixed.
