Description of App

Turn a scripted steel-cage wrestling match into a real fight in this 250,000-word interactive novel! You've always dreamed of becoming pro wrestling's biggest star...but a wrestler's world is fraught with hardship and betrayal, in and out of the ring. Become a powerhouse, a technician, a high-flier, or focus on your promo skills. There's more than one road to success. But none of those roads will be easy. This is a world where your biggest fans are your harshest critics; where the front office is more dangerous than the squared circle; where friends can become enemies with a single heel turn; where, sometimes, the only way to win is to lose, spectacularly. This is professional wrestling. And you're about to change it, forever. Slammed! is an epic interactive professional-wrestling novel by Paolo Chikiamco, where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination. There's never been a professional wrestling game like this, a game where the outcome of your final match, your choice of opponent, and your relationships affect the ending. When's the last time you played a pro-wrestling RPG with a "kayfabe" stat?--or where your trash-talking "promo" ability is as important as your core strength and wrestling technique? 
  • Enjoy a 250,000-word personal tale of friendship, competition, and revenge.
  • Develop not only your physical abilities, but a favored wrestling style.
  • Become a heroic face, or a villainous heel--or even turn heel.
  • Turn a scripted match into a real fight--and vice versa.
  • Decide when to keep kayfabe, and when to break it.
  • Play as male or female, gay or straight.

Other Comments

Anyone who is a wrestling fan, from the biggest smark to the most casual of marks should buy this game. Yes, I used insider terms on purpose because this game is full of what makes wrestling superb. All the insider terms are clearly explained as you play through the story, so it is a superb introduction to the workings and corruption that is the staple of many wrestling federations. It is also a good story, so even fans of competent writing will enjoy this.

Hello, although the entry says this app is fully accessible, I find that when you go from screen to screen, VoiceOver will read it, but upon further examination, it maybe starts on the third or fourth line of text. I have to put the IPhone on mute to stop the clicking, and swipe up with two fingers to hear the complete screen. Otherwise you lose a few sentences every screen. Is there a way around this, or do we need to submit a ticket to the developer? Thanks.

Matthew, have you tryed a four finger tap at the top of the screan to reach the top of the app and read down from there? And yes, the app crashing is a known bug in IOS6. the developers are working on fixing it. This exists with all choice of games apps,but its not too bad. it crashes a few times then lets you in. no data is lost,so it isn't a big deal. Falcon wings.

I note in the comments that someone said that VO isn't reading text correctly. This is the case within all choice of games applications. The solution to read the text is to navigate via headings using the roter until you hear the game's title, there is an action button to the right of this but using a two-finger swipe down for continuous reading will work from that point. As I said, all of the choice script games are the same.
