What people are saying about SUPERPOWERED:
★★★★★ “Loved it! You get so much story for the money.” – Indie Book Reviewers★★★★★ A long time ago I was a fan of “Choose your own path” adventure books. Especially the “Fighting Fantasy” series and also “Lone Wolf”. They were brilliant and introduced me to RPG in the mid-eighties. Occasionally there were some attempts to revive this genre of game-book with mixed results.
I believe James Schannep made quite a breakthrough in this industry. This “Superpowered – choose your poison” book is truly awesome. It’s a cut above the competition in several different aspects, including the amount of choices (three types of super power, villain and hero paths, some funny and quite “realistic” paths…small spoiler ahead: I just rolled laughing when my character inadvertently ended professional football), well written and dynamic story, very well thought back tracking process, logic and well imagined options. You will simply be thrilled by the experience of being a Super Hero…and believe me, you’ll come back for more! You will want to try all the options.
There are some issues that could be improved. For example the origin story is fun but oriented clearly to a young and juvenile audience. Fun, simple and let’s go to the main plate. No problem with that, but than most of the story has some situations and language not appropriate to those targets. The author should establish his target audience. It would also be great to have some line drawings illustrating some of the events. A game system would also be interesting (although I understand that it becomes far more complex to plot the story).
This book will give you many hours of entertaining adventure, a huge amount of possibilities, and I recommend it to adult customers (young readers should adventure in this world with their parents as reading sidekicks). – Amazon Reviewer
