    If you want a deep, ponderous, text-heavy world-building game for your iPhone, this is the one. Otherwise, pass on King of Dragon Pass.

    I've had an absolutely fantastic time playing King of Dragon Pass. Its slow pace makes it a perfect mobile game.

    For a fantasy-addicted player King of the Dragon Pass is the perfect game. It has no magnificent graphics or epic sound design, but with brilliant storytelling it can drag you into an extraordinary world.

    The range of scenarios that crop up is impressive, and the gameplay is complex and rewarding, but only if you can get past the fact that the lack of animation, multiple menus and statistics make for rather a dry experience.

    To make a musical analogy, your run of the mill first person shooter game is like a stupid radio pop song, and King of Dragon Pass is Miles Davis playing live jazz in some hole in the wall Paris club. Sure it's easier to enjoy the stupid radio pop song, but the people that take the time to appreciate the jazz come away with a richer experience.

    King of Dragon Pass must be the best story driven roleplaying game ever made. Actually this is the only roleplaying game, because all the others are just hack and slashes with stats. [Oct 2011]

    This has to be one of the deepest and most original games out on iOS. KoDP is really like no other game, and plays like a mix of a choose-your-own-story combined with a roleplaying game, where you control the fortunes of an entire barbarian clan, instead of a small band of heroes. The setting, the fantasy world of Glorantha, which originates from the world of table-top roleplaying, is one of the most interesting and magical fictional universes ever created, and to be succesful in the game, you have to immerse yourself in it and think like a Gloranthan barbarian. A true masterpiece, and recommended for anyone with a sense of adventure and imagination. Full Review »
