APP STORE SUMMARY
Second in the series of critically acclaimed interactive fantasy gamebooks in which you, the reader, control the direction of the story! You do not need to have played any previous Gamebook Adventures titles in order to play this.

"Set in the coastal town of Myr, you have returned home after a long Summer in the mines of Durath Tor to find your hometown besieged by strange creatures. A dark presence has taken over the town and you are the only one who can rid the stronghold of Erid Buul, the mysterious new Lord and his ghastly cohorts."

"The graphics are simply excellent, with selectable fonts and backgrounds available. The quality of the design is such that it’s easy to forget you’re holding a mere iPhone in your hands and not a real-live book." - TouchMyApps

"The quality of the writing here is superb. Like the first game the author manages to keep your interest held, with the vocabulary rich and the writing witty and descriptive, holding an element of tension throughout." - Games Uncovered

"...the host of smaller parts really make The Siege of the Necromancer shine in comparison to the increasing number of adaptations of the old books." - Know Your Mobile

Gamebook Adventures 2: The Siege of the Necromancer has the following features:
•Newly written fantasy adventure story containing magic, monsters and mystery. We are not simply a re-print of old gamebooks with each GA story lovingly crafted by experienced gamebook authors.
•Easy to use interface with classic page turning. As easy as reading a book!
•Read in portrait or landscape. (iPad only)
•Dynamic page links that respond to your situation.
•New gamebook rules and battle system unique to Gamebook Adventures. Rules are accessible at any time during the adventure if you need to refresh yourself.
•Real-time 3D dice rolling with realistic physics. Shake the device like a dice shaker and watch the 3D dice bounce around the scene and off each other. Stop shaking and the dice will land giving you a result.
•Quick Dice feature for those who want to speed up dice rolls
•Easy to change fonts, font sizes, and paper type to set up the book the way you want it.

•Keep informed as the land of Orlandes grows. “Orlandes Uncovered” is a detailed history of the fantasy setting and will be updated at regular intervals giving you a rich and rewarding overall experience with the gamebooks.
•Interactive world map which can be zoomed and scrolled. This will also be updated regularly as the details about the world unfold and expand.
