From Tin Man Games, the award winning studio that has released over 30 digital gamebooks and interactive fiction apps on the App Store, including those from the Fighting Fantasy series. The Warlock of Firetop Mountain goes one step further from previous releases, jumping from the 2D page and transforming into an epic 3D domain, with new areas to explore, characters to meet, and of course, monsters to slay!
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, originally published in 1982 as a paperback and selling over two million copies, was a pioneering release that popularized the solo gamebook and successfully brought the role-playing game experience to a wider audience. Writers, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, founded Games Workshop and have continued to have a distinguished careers in both tabletop gaming and video games. Original illustrator, Russ Nicholson, has also returned 35 years later to create new artwork for the game!
The game comes pre-loaded with four heroes: Lunika Ekaadi, Dekion Strom, Alexandra of Blacksand and Arran Gottspeed. More heroes can be bought, with new combat skills and story quests, from within the app.

Ratings and Reviews
We're huge fans of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone’s Fighting Fantasy game books, and this latest page-to-screen translation is especially wonderful, mixing choose-your-own-adventure dilemmas with bite-sized, turn-based battles. It’s all done with a clever tabletop game aesthetic that truly brings this classic book to life.
A fantastic spin on the book
Coming from someone who more or less owns every book in the series I have to say this digital remake brings book 1 to life in a way I would have never imagined. I love the complete visualisation of the mountain dungeon as you move through it.
The combat system blows the original dice-only system out of the water, and gives you a fighting chance regardless of how low your stats are, too bad the books never had this.
I bought the expansion set as well and think I’ve just about played through with every character. If I was to mention just one improvement I’d really love then that would be for a richer and longer dialogue that differs between each character and Zagor at the end. It seems such a shame to fight all the way through to the end just to have a showdown with him.
All in all this my favourite download for the year so far.
Full disclosure: I loved the game book as a child over thirty years ago. I doubt whether adding excellent visuals and a robust/tense melee system adds a great deal, but it's great the developer has done just that. With digital, each avatar now adds a different slant: embellishment profound over the dice and stats of the game book. Needless to say too good for kids, and a lot of fun.
