I know many of you have been anxiously waiting for Sorcery! Part 4 ($4.99) to drop, and it’s finally here. Now you can play the fourth and final(?) installment of a series that has really raised the bar on the quality of interactive fiction on mobile. If you’ve played the first three parts of the series, your decisions will of course affect the story in Sorcery! 4 (by the way, the exclamation mark in the title was clearly an attempt to honor Barkley Shut Up and Jam!), but if you haven’t, Sorcery! 4 should feel like a complete experience. Of course if you plan on playing this one, you really should pick up the other 3 because they are all fantastic.
In Sorcery! 4, you are trying to get the legendary Crown of Kings from the Archmage at the Fortress of Mampang. Sounds like an easy task for such a legendary warrior as yourself. The fourth installment is an open-world narrative that lets you explore the world freely while the story adapts to your epic successes (and dismal failures). You get to put on various disguises, uncover spells, and do all the fun stuff fantasy heroes do. The game has music from the 80 Days composer, Laurence Chapman, and features over half a million words. What I mean to say with all this is that if you like interactive fiction, buy this one immediately.
