    GA7: Temple of the Spider God's review

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

    7th 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

    "Spiders? How much do you hate me, DM?"

    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.

    Download was easy. Crashes when I try to play. I'm on an NVIDIA shield K1. Any advice?

    One appreciates the effort of that which is built of laborious creativity. One now has a gamebook addiction. One highly recommends this and other Tina Man productions

    Well, for some reason the game wants to name me "the tin man" no matter what I name myself AND give me unlimited bookmarks (it always shows you have 10 remaining) in classic mode. WTF, that takes all the challenge out of it. If I wanted to play like that Id choose casual. Did the latest update release a dev test copy or what? Itd be great if this was fixed, its a good gamebook otherwise. Id give i

    The "phobia" factor introduced to the game play - HoH fear points reminiscent here. Battles with 8 legged enemies take on a new twist now, as the hero in this story has a fear of spiders! Really enjoyed the story and pacing of this book, it's a well balanced adventure yarn and more of a challenge than previous titles too. GA are all well put together and worth every penny. I'm well & truly hooked

    I loved the original ff game books tin man have brought the concept into the 21 st century. Whilst the story is great at the same time the dice game part of it can be a little tedious sometimes rolling rolling rolling can be a little arbitrary, but then the fact you can unlock locked choices means you can skip ahead anyway not unlike the original when you'd failed for the third time. So it's all
