App Description

An interactive fantasy adventure! It's a book. It's a game. It's an RPG. It's a Gamebook Adventure!

Please note that you do not need to have read any of the previous gamebooks in order to read and play this. The critically acclaimed series of newly imagined interactive fantasy gamebooks puts you, the reader, in control of the story! Along with a realistic dice-based battle system to fight creatures, an epic tale and beautiful artwork, The Wizard from Tarnath Tor will give you many hours of gamebook adventuring!

"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?"

"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read – not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM

"After finally making my way through the series’ newest release, I’m somewhat ashamed that I’ve waited so long to take the plunge...the only real question is, “How much longer do I think I can hold out before buying the other five volumes?” The answer: Not very." - 148APPS (4/5)
