"I'm a disbeliever"

A new take on the mid 80s classic

Blatantly inspired on Chaos -yes, the mid 80s Spectrum game- this Sorcerers does its best to adapt and enhance that gaming experience to current tendencies. For example, there's a manual inside and interface has been adapted to fit touchscreens.

Graphics are better than the original ZX ones, whatever next.

There's an option to start online matches, though it's hard to find rivals. This wouldn't be an issue at all if you can play against the AI, but regarding solo playing the only option is a training mode whereby you can play alone but face not anyone thus casting spells around till you kill yourself with magic fire or whatever.

Developer's original description available here
SORCERERS is a turn based fantasy battle game played against other human opponents. The game is simple to learn: your wizard must destroy your opponent's wizards by using your spells, which will allow you to create fantastic creatures or desolate the landscape with fire and other effects. The strategies can be as complex as you want!

FEATURES:-
* Two different game types: '% Chance' where spells have a certain chance of working, or 'Mana' games where you have a number of points to spend on spells.
* Create games against with 2, 3 or 4 players
* A wide range of creature spells, including Dragons, Goblins, Vampires and a Gelatinous Cube.
* Lots of effect spells, including Magic Fire, Magic Castle, Wall, Vortex, Wall, Fireball, Plague of Locusts

This game is turn based; you take your turn, then an email is automatically sent to your opponent to tell them it is now their turn. Then you get an email when they have taken their turn. It is perfect for casual gaming.

Your wizard starts with a range of spells. These include fantasy creatures like dragons and gryphons, to the undead like wights and wraiths. Your wizard can also shoot lightening bolts, or create magic fires that spread across the battlefield. There are also other spells that can change the course of the game, like Subversion which will allow you to take control of an enemy create, or Resurrect which will bring a dead creature back to life. The wide range of spells ensures that no two games are ever the same!

If you liked games such as "Chaos - The Battle of Wizards" or "Magic: The Gathering", then you will love this.

* This app has no adverts or IAPs (in-app purchases) - you get all the features. All of my apps also have a full satisfaction guarantee in perpetuity: just email me if you don't like the app, and get a full refund. *

    Good old school strategy. No pay to win, tight community, won't take up much space on your phone.

    Great game, nice and easy to get into yet deceptively strategic, well worth 50 odd pence of anyone's money!
