    GA3: Slaves of Rema's review

    Published: 2013-11-18, by Peter Warrior.

    3rd in the series of gamebook adventures

    • Great port of the classic books
    • No lite or trial version
    • The app may be more expensive than the real book in a street market

    "Believe me, Rema is a better place in Summer."

    Gamebook adventures were a popular series of well, you know, books, back in the eighties and nineties, that combined choice-your-adventure mechanics with dice and a character sheet (a simplified version of those "true" role playing games use). It was just a matter of time that someone bring them back from oblivion and updates them. This review applies to all the GA series, as there are no relevant differences regarding interface of playability between them.

    We won't discuss here the quality of the content, as they are all awesome under thirty years ago standards, but the update is at the same time something great and a missed chance. Great because there are a bunch of lovely little details such as the die rolling on the table and little animations to give the game some pace and intensity. A missed chance because there could have been a lot of customization options we would have liked to really create our own character, and the sections are so word by word the same as then that if you played them as a child you will still remember which options are better. There have been a few gameplay tweaks, though, but nothing able to break the already existing (un)balance.

    Anyway, this more than acceptable update on those books we loved so much has to be welcomed and praised because of its professionalism and user-oriented thinking.

    Can't rate it any higher. This was my first Tin Man book and will probably be my last. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't great. Story was REALLY short and just when the story could have taken ends...glad I bought it discount but I recommend just buying an actual book instead...

    As always, Tinmangames' engine is flawless, but this book is not only a bit shorter than their normal fare, but you can literally make the book unwinnable within the first 2-3 choices. You'll go on unknowing you've already doomed yourself for hours and get to a choke point where only 2 items will save you that you can only get by making the perfect choices at the beginning. Poorly designed.

    Lovely book, fun choices and gameplay. If all their books were priced at 1-2 dollars a book I would buy them all. Only fault is that the books are a bit on the short side for me to justify 5 dollars on some.

    A fun little adventure book. Imagine a mix between a choose your own adventure novel and a d&d lite session for one. Bought it on sale for 99 cents on sale. A bargain for that price. Saw the other titles were notably more.

    It's a but unpleasant to start all over again to discover where we missed that specific item. An option to take some notes would be very appreciated! other than that it's a nice return to my 15 yrs.
