App description: Gamebook Adventures returns for its fourth outing in the critically acclaimed series of newly imagined interactive fantasy gamebooks in which you, the reader, control the direction of the story! Along with a realistic dice-based battle system to fight creatures, a great story and beautiful artwork, Revenant Rising will give you many hours of gamebook adventuring! Please note that you do not need to have played any of the previous gamebooks in order to play this.

"The mighty city of Falavia, the military backbone of Orlandes, is under attack from an army lead by a man claiming to be a God. How did this come to pass you ask yourself? You're sure it all started as some innocent adventure in search of treasure but somehow it turned into a nightmare. Also, why are people staring at you strangely? Its not as if you look like you've recently been brought back from the dead or something. Oh yes, that's right. You remember now... "

"Arguably the best of the Gamebook Adventure series released so far by Tin Man Games, Revenant Rising combines polished gameplay mechanics with an original storyline, flinging you between the world of the living and the dead and back again. Stylish graphics only add to the atmosphere to be enjoyed both on the iPhone and the iPad." - Touch My Apps

"My favourite examples so far though are the iPad and iPhone-compatible Gamebook Adventures, a series of lovingly crafted and extremely well-written interactive fantasy novels. It's surprisingly engrossing stuff, the economically written narrative packing in masses of detail, while rattling out a pacy, involving story." - The Guardian

"The true gem, and the reason these are next iteration choose your own adventure books, is the dice component in the overall story." - 148Apps

Gamebook Adventures 4: Revenant Rising is the fourth in a series of newly written adventure gamebooks for the iPhone, iPod Touch and now beautifully realised for the iPhone 4! We are completely original and not simply a re-print of old gamebooks.

Includes all the interactive reading and gameplay features found in An Assassin in Orlandes, The Siege of the Necromancer and Slaves of Rema
An adapted story by Kieran Coghlan with illustrations by Kyle Ferrin and cover by Dan Maxwell that takes you on an epic quest of fantasy adventure.
Battle a host of creatures from zombies to orgons and even find yourself on the field of one of Orlandes most important battles dictating the tide by your actions.
Three difficulty levels: Classic, Bookworm and Novice.
Lots of achievements to collect and artwork to find throughout the book.
Illustrations can now be viewed full screen by simply tapping on them in the book and we have higher resolution artwork for iPhone 4 users making use of the new retina display!
New widgets at the bottom of each page access direct to your inventory, settings and main menu making easier than ever to find your way around the gamebook.
An update to the constantly changing world gazetteer, Orlandes Uncovered.
Dramatic soundtrack composed by our Freeplay Independent Games Awards Finalist, Adrian Watkins.

Gamebook Adventures is brought together through the efforts of passionate and avid gamebook enthusiasts. If you are familiar with the Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf or Grail Quest series then Gamebook Adventures will really appeal to you. Our aim is to give those nostalgic readers of old something new and fresh, and bring a new exciting experience to those unfamiliar with gamebooks. If you enjoy fantasy RPGs or adventure games then this is for you!

Look out for more Gamebook Adventures coming all the time!

Awesome. Thanks all for your kind words and support for Gamebook Adventures. We certainly did choose to release on a pretty hectic day and understandably have been squashed under all the noise, so your support is vital! We hope you enjoy the fourth gamebook - it was great fun to put together.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
