  • Summary: The magic of Gamebook Adventures returns! 40% OFF DEBUT SALE for our fans and early adopters!Please note that you do not need to have read any of the previous gamebooks in order to read and play this.

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?""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." - 148AppsGamebook Adventures 6: The Wizard from Tarnath Tor is the sixth in a series of newly written adventure gamebooks for the iPhone, iPod Touch and now beautifully realised for the iPad!
