Excellent RPG, neat animation, interesting graphics, exciting plotline
Overwhelming, glitches, uses a lot of system resources
Sorcery! for Android is an admirable game. Clearly a lot of work went into the back story and how this game is presented. It's a little Dungeons & Dragons with a twist of Harry Potter. In other words, very cool. However, the controls leave a little to be desired and there is a lot of reading (which isn't a bad thing; just saying.)
Sorcery! is very interesting. It plays a lot like a classic RPG board game and leaves a lot to the intimation. It has a very classic feel to it, and I love the storytelling aspect of how it is presented. It features tons of original art that look like authentic sketches from medieval times. This game just feels ancient; like it was programmed on parchment.
Move your game piece though an old school map of this mythic land. Engage in battles, cast spells and figure out the riddle to this exhaustively complex game. This is one of those games that creates a complete world to be experienced within your mid and imagination. Think Shakespeare meets J.R.R. Tolkien in app form.
Unfortunately, the controls were very glitchy on my Galaxy S3. Screen touches often didn't register, which quickly became tedious. However, the game is so interesting that I’m willing to suffer through that until an update hopefully addresses these issues. Also, the app clearly uses a lot of resources because it made my battery run hot, right quick. It’s very simple in its visuals, yet somehow, still manages to trip information overload pretty easily with all the heavy reading and back story. It’s almost as much a book as it is a game. Very heady, but thoroughly enjoyable. Be prepared to really give yourself to this game. It will take quite a while to complete and play, so be prepared for that commitment.
Sorcery! has outstanding potential. This is classic RPG at its best. I think with a little more refinement to the controls and game play, this app could really become a classic. Probably even a series of hit movies. Can't wait to see how it evolves.
