    "This game has everything that you would want in a vampire game. It has the graphics , the story line , the characters and it leaves you emotionally drained to be honest. I played it all the way thru and in the end i felt so sad and i felt like something was missing from me. But i would definitely recommend this game to vampire fans. "

    "Are you tired of catching Pokemon, crushing candy, and sending your battle troops across the field like I was? You should check out Sorcery! If you remember the choose your own adventure books from back in the 80's, then you'll feel nostalgic for this game. Quite similar in that the story is based on what you choose, it's a refreshing change to the mobile game scene. "

    "I thought the content of this story was very interesting, and it kept me interested despite the lack of illustrations and the simple interface. You have to pay to finish the whole thing, but I didn't mind doing so based on the sample that was provided."

    "Wow, this game had me drawn in from page (screen?) 1! The story is pure candy for anyone into the sci fi genre. Nothing groundbreaking or nutritious per se... but definitely hits that guilty pleasure chord. Great perceptions of choice, love the battle system and inventory management, and the skill progression is just icing on the cake. However, this all stopped abruptly for me on the "Ship of Fools" chapter. The game unexpectedly crashes following a battle with a certain sniper's lookout. Please fix!"

    "80 Days is the best iPhone gamebook type game. It is based on a novel by Jules Verne. The decisions you make during the game actually matter and you do not always win. You cannot backtrack and choose different destinations, so the decisions you make matter. It is a very interesting and interactive story."
