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.

This looks really good may have to buy it first I would like to see a gameplay video so I'm off to find one
Seems like I remember this name from back in the 80s sure sounds familiar and I do like the way it's adapted here with the figurines and all that
