App description: Travel to Northern Allansias perilous Icefinger Mountains to defeat the wicked Snow Witch in this Fighting Fantasy adventure!

Deep within the Crystal Caves of Icefinger Mountains, the dreaded Snow Witch is plotting to bring on a new ice age. A brave trapper dies in your arms and lays the burden of his mission on your shoulders. But time is running out will YOU take up the challenge?


"Caverns of the Snow Witch is a classic gamebook, and this digital version reinvigorates it for a digital generation. It's fast, it's fun, and its story of icy tundra and giant dragons is worth sticking with until the end." - Pocket Gamer - 8 out 10 - Silver Award

"...it's a very solid gamebook, and if you've enjoyed any of Tin Man's other conversions of Livingstone's work, it's a journey worth embarking on." - Touch Arcade - 4 out of 5

"Fans of the original will also appreciate that they can switch the visuals to a 1980s style gamebook appearance, away from the more stylish modern looks that Tin Man Games offers. It ensures that Fighting Fantasy: Caverns of the Snow Witch really is the best of both worlds. Its nostalgic yet offers features that we all wished we had back in the day, like fast dice. Thats a great combination that easily continues Tin Man Gamess reign as a fine purveyor of classic adventure game books." - 148Apps - 4 out of 5

"Caverns of the Snow Witch is a great blast from the past, perfect for the winter months." - Starburst Magazine - 8 out of 10

Make the gamebook as easy or hard as you like and even turn on a special cheat mode to read it old-school!

What number was this in the Fighting Fantasy series? This is one that doesn't ring a bell for me.

Don't quote me on it, but I think it was the ninth one. Just before House of Hell.
