App description: Fighting Fantasy, the world famous interactive gamebook series returns for its 30th Anniversary! Ian Livingstone and Tin Man Games present Blood of the Zombies on iOS!!

"Insane megalomaniac Gingrich Yurr is preparing to unleash an army of monstrous zombies upon the world. He must be stopped and his undead horde defeated. In this life-or-death adventure the decisions YOU make will decide the fate of the world. Can YOU survive or will YOU become a zombie too?"

** REVIEWS **

Blood of the Zombies is a hugely enjoyable, brilliantly presented, hilariously violent romp. If this is your first gamebook or your 30th, youre going to have a whale of a time. POCKET GAMER - 9/10 - GOLD AWARD!

its speedy combat and inbuilt adversity make it a great candidate for the app treatment. A skilled app designer and an experienced author have collaborated and managed the rare feat of creating something greater than the sum of their individual talents. - GAMEZEBO - 4.5/5

Ultimately, fans of the old stories should enjoy Blood of the Zombies. It delivers an authentic Fighting Fantasy experience while updating the gameplay and style in its own way. STARBURST - 8/10

for those looking for an interesting storyline and a delightful walk down memory lane, its a sterling effort and one that very much deserves its asking price. Im already looking forward to other Fighting Fantasy/Tin Man Games collaborations. 148 APPS - 4.5/5 EDITORS CHOICE!

Beautifully presented, a little campy but oh-so-worth that walk down memory lane, Blood of the Zombies will not go amiss in your library of interactive iOS-based tales. TOUCH ARCADE - 4/5

Another early surprise ! Got most of the Gamebook adventures (And this book in old fashioned paper format !).

Hmmm bit of a high price, i'll probably get it though. Love the books from Tin Man Games (Specially Judge Dredd)

Uhm... development costs + license fees + artists cost... what do you expect?

It's cheaper than the paperback anyway.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yeah on the other hand cheaper price probably means more sales. Already bought the book, granted that doesnt mean i should get a 'cheaper' electronic version but just seems quite a high price.

THe Price might change a bit since I had to use some Calculator that had some outdated NZ -> US Information back then.

Whether or not this is cheaper than the books depends on if you bought new or not. The ones I have were used, in good shape and cheaper. Not necessarily this one. I don't have it. But these are a lot more convenient and fun to play on iPad. I will probably wait for a sale, anyway, though.
