Praise for Discworld: The Ankh-Morpork Map:

‘Great fun for fans of Terry Pratchett's fantasy series. . . they should download it immediately.’ – Telegraph

‘The app is crammed with as much information as you’d find in a posh coffee table book – plus new art and audio-visual effects. . . If you’re a Discworld fan, it’s an immense thrill to zoom in and tap on locations like Pseudopolis Yard and the various guild buildings.’ – SFX Magazine

‘The depth of content and quality of the illustrations makes it worth the price’ – MSN Tech

‘A great complement to Terry Pratchett's already amazing series. 10 out of 10’ – App Storm

‘The app features a full street directory, a stunning level of detail, walking tours, and the opportunity to do busywork for shiftless Postmaster Moist von Lipwig, as well as a full soundscape. Yes, this app allows you to hear Ankh-Morpork. Luckily, it doesn’t make you smell it.’ - Tor.com

‘Think what would happen if one of your favorite fictional cities was given the Google Maps treatment. This is that.’ – AppAddict


Praise for Discworld:

'The Discworld is warm, silly, fantastically inventive... There's never been anything quite like it' - Evening Standard

'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction' Mail on Sunday
