Woo, House of Hell was always my favourite of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks for some reason, which is why I was happy when I saw it mentioned back alongside Blood of the Zombies. Interesting that the first two FF books Tin Man took on happen to be the two set on Earth in modern times, rather than the usual Titan-based fantasy (and occasional other sci-fi) setting.

However, while I loved most of the nature of this book, I also had a problem with it in terms of its severely punishing nature and barely-masked linearity; you really had to do things one particular way, or you'd simply lose. In fact, it was designed so unfairly that certain large sections of the house were inescapable dead-ends that would always result in death in one way or another if you entered them at all, although you couldn't know that before entering them, and wouldn't find that out until some time later when the progress you thought you were making was rudely cut short - quite literally, usually.
