    Sorcery! 3 is easily the biggest and most robust gamebook inkle has produced to date.

    Once again, inkle Studios has bested themselves in creating the gold standard for interactive fiction, and causing us all to start wondering when the next chapter will arrive.

    Like a great novel, Inkle’s games can steal entire nights of sleep from you as you’re immersed in their text, and Sorcery! 3 is their most potent work to date.

    It must be said that there’s some loss of nostalgia in Sorcery! 3, however. It’s an amazing game that you absolutely must play, but it’s much less of a gamebook than similar apps are.

    This brilliant mix of old and new sets a fresh benchmark for the genre. [July 2015, p.71]

    The Sorcery-series offers a solid RPG experience with just words. Developer Inkle modernised the books from 1984 very well, and if you read carefully it will offer you a unique gaming experience.

The longer the series goes on, the further they seem to be moving away from the original story. Most of the "new" content seems to drag out the story and I found it getting quite tedious by the end. The rewind button is the only saving grace at these times. Expand
