Yeah, I bought a copy of Warlock of Firetop Mountain when it first came out.

I'm very, very old.

This is going to be awesome on the iPhone if done right. Then my stats page wouldn't be full of eraser marks and areas that ripped when being written on from so much erasing... Hope they copy the book word for word. And now I can finally get the other 2 that I don't have.

City of Theives and Deathtrap Dungeon too

I hope they include the original art - I basically learned how to draw by mimicking the inking techniques in those books. Good stuff

I remember that book, The Warlock Of Firetop Mountain.
I remember being in our yacht aged about 4-6 years, sailing somewhere in the atlantic ocean and reading/playing that book. I never got to the end of it (legitimately) though. I cheated by flicking through the pages .

It would be nice if they keep the original style of the book/game with maybe some improved art work.

Well, I don't know about you guys but I was under the impression that this was going to be some sort of e-book, but is it really? Look at this video from the DS version...
Did I get it all wrong? Same company, same title..If this is going to be like the DS version, I can't wait! I remember reading that it was going to be a serie of upcoming books, I'm confused

Edit: OK, just went to the main site, looks like it's going to be a book after all. It's just that the game has the same name, is from the same company and it's going to come out around the same time, just to add confusion.

Must be coming out soon, the DS version was delayed until next week. I would sure like to see more fighting fantasy books in the furute, I'll buy them all! You would think it wouldn't take very long to get this game out, It's just an ebook with some stats, maybe some pictures. Ahh... nostalgia.

Mission Europa 2 is coming!!!

It is an ebook...

It is definitely a kind of ebook... it is *not* the same as the DS game... These are basically reprints of the books with shake to roll dice and automatic stat recording ( no need for a pencil ).



Looking forward to it.
