Choose Your Own Adventure books got thousands of role players engaged in reading back in the 80s and 90s. This interesting and simple game follows the style of that famous saga and introduces us to an adventure full of magic where we will experience the story of a magician's apprentice.
Magic, fantasy, and lots of words
Halfway between a role-playing game and an interactive novel, Magium is a fantastic application where we will read the story of Barry, a normal kid who joins a magic competition where he will face the most powerful magicians in the world. His goal (and ours) is to use the prize to achieve his dream: to become a skilled magician.
Your choices will affect the story, and the wrong choices can even lead to death.
The story is slightly inspired by Dungeons & Dragons, being set in a medieval fantasy world with cyberpunk touches. The development of the game is similar to all the games of the genre: we will have to keep reading until we are faced with a decision. The plot will continue according to the answers we choose. And we will have to choose carefully because we can die too.
Also, just like in traditional RPGs, as we play, we can improve Barry's attribute points, including his strength and speed. Of course, the stronger our character is, the more likely we are to reach the end of the story.
The developers have focused on a powerful story, leaving design aside. Thus, the interface is quite unattractive (and even a bit outdated) and there are no drawings, but that is irrelevant if we take into account how catchy the story is (which is only available in English).
If we like interactive stories where the story changes according to the decisions we make, we cannot miss the opportunity to download this fun novel's APK file. Also, the different books that compose the story are long, so we will be reading for a while.
