Drop the price to $1/book and I'll become interested. $4 is way too much (I'd rather buy a real book at this price).

Precisely what I was thinking. I'd also be interested was it not way overpriced.

I still like the way the first book starts out best - it's a little less combat-intensive. Several of the others feel more like the Fighting Fantasy novels (not that there's anything wrong with that, I love those too!)

That being said, you can't go wrong with any of these, they're the best implementation of gamebooks anywhere, IMHO - and speaking as someone who's been into this since he started collecting Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid... I paid $5 for most of this series and have been very happy with them.

Drop the price because I'm not part of your target market (nostalgic fans of "Choose your own adventure" books). Not being a fan, I'm only remotely interested in your product. You want my money, try a price drop. You don't want my money, keep your prices up.

Also, not being a fan, I compare your games with the rest of the AppStore - let's see, what can I get for $3? Starfront Collision OR Highborn HD OR Plants vs Zombies OR Death Rally etc (I'm not even talking about the ton of $1 games with longer lifespan and replayability).

About the "what books do I read for $3" - the price was still $5 yesterday, at least in my part of the world. It's $3 now, all right. Mea culpa.

Last I checked there were thousands of free books online, not only classics but also a lot of decent new ones. Not to mention the millions of libraries scattered all over the world with minimal fees if any.

So, if you're comparing an App Store game to literature, which I don't think is adequate but I'll pretend to just to play your game, I can find thousands of cheaper and more qualified titles nearly anywhere.
