Gamebook Adventures: The Wizard from Tarnath Tor

Our sixth Gamebook Adventures title, The Wizard from Tarnath Tor is making it's debut on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad in the coming weeks.

"Two hundred years ago, the legendary City of Tarnath Tor was destroyed as it’s defenders, the mighty wizards valiantly tried to repel an orcun horde. Now just a place set within stories and myths, it has been lost to the outside world. A chance encounter with one who claims to be a time traveller sends you on a mission to recover some magical artifacts. This search will lead you to great ruins and the dark forces who have made it their home. Who is this wizard from Tarnath Tor and how can you trust him?"



•Includes all the interactive reading and gameplay features found in An Assassin in Orlandes, The Siege of the Necromancer, Slaves of Rema, Revenant Rising and Catacombs of the Undercity.

•Written by Al Sander, the winner of the 2008 Windhammer Prize for Short Gamebook Fiction!

I might join this rival camp ! Fed up of the Fighting Fantasy books, loved those as a kid so started buying those, the Sorcery series theyve released just 1 out of the 4 despite 'promises' that they would be coming out frequently.

Anyway shall probably check these out, look pretty good
