"8/10" - Inside Mac Games
"Fans looking to get into the Avernum series will do very well with Escape from the Pit, and while the improvements beyond the game engine and visuals are relatively modest, there's still a lot to enjoy even if you've played through the game once before already." - GameBanshee
"The game’s strong writing carries it through, and earns it a place among the greatest indie RPGs. 9.0/10" - Game Chronicles
"It is a tribute to indie gaming as a whole that a game made by such a tiny team can swell into such an involving, engrossing and glorious fantasy epic. - 9/10" - The Digital Fix

"Spiderweb Software have provided a vast world in which to get lost, and a hefty quest in which to sink your teeth, which will reward those who can overlook its lack of finesse with many hours of enjoyable adventure." - Indie Game Magazine
"Take this one with you on car trips, use it to replace your TV shows on summer break, whatever. No self-respecting fan of RPGs should be without it." - Technology Tell


Avernum: Escape From the Pit is an epic, indie fantasy role-playing adventure. It is optimized for Android tablets and features an enormous world, a fascinating story, and 30+ hours of gameplay. Avernum is the first chapter in an epic tale, the story of imprisonment, rebellion, and the struggle for freedom against overwhelming odds.

Avernum: Escape From the Pit features:

* Epic fantasy adventure in an enormous underworld.
* Huge outdoors and eighty towns and dungeons.
* Three separate game-winning quests. Seek safety, escape or revenge. Do just one of them or all three!
* Unique races and settings make Avernum different from any adventure out there.
* Dozens of side quests and hundreds of magical artifacts.
* Rich game system with over 50 spells and battle disciplines and a multitude of beneficial character traits to choose from.

The Story:

You have been banished to the underworld, never to see the light of day again.

The surface is ruled by the cruel Emperor Hawthorne, master of the Empire. All of the known lands are subject to his brutal command. Everyone who speaks out, who misbehaves, who doesn’t fit in is cast into the dark, volcanic pits of Avernum, far below the surface. There, you are expected to die, a victim of starvation, horrible monsters, or simple despair.

But not all of the Avernites have surrendered. With magic and steel, they are forging a new nation deep underground. You can join them and fight for safety. Or freedom. Or even, if you dare, revenge on the surface-worlders who tried to destroy you.

Another great RPG. Spiderweb has done it again! This remake of Exile is done well to show off the new engine and it is spectacular. Lots of flavor text and back story and an exceptional story take you for a wild adventure. The only downside is that with all the reading the UI is a bit small on a 7in or bigger tablet, and will lead to forced shorter game sessions due to eye strain. And that is sad because this is a story you won't want to put down.

Broken UI Designed for phones?! Maybe if you have incredible vision and tiny fingers... everything is so tiny on my 7" tablet I can't effectively play. A pinch to zoom (pretty standard on these kinds of games ACTUALLY designed for phones) would fix everything. Cmon spiderweb, I love avernum, don't tease me like this.

Good game for RPG fans. So far so good. Started with a couple of problems. If you have a toolbar at the bottom of your tablet that is displayed, get rid of it before opening the game as it distorts the graphics. The game plays fine after that. Now love the game cannot put it down.
