Create your own adventures in a dangerous land of monsters, treasures and traps. From renowned authors Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone (co-founders of Games Workshop) and Nomad Games, Fighting Fantasy Legends is a role-playing card game set in the world of Fighting Fantasy.

Travel across the land of Allansia with just a sword and some gold to your name and rise up to Legendary status. Play through the stories of three iconic gamebooks - City of Thieves, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and Citadel of Chaos.

Each location has a shuffled deck of cards which includes fiendish creatures, powerful objects and dramatic events. You must build up your collection of powerful treasures and level-up your dice to have any chance of surviving the dangerous streets of Port Blacksand, the murky depths of Firetop Mountain or the looming shadows of The Citadel.

The world needs a Hero... you will give them a Legend.

Well this came out of nowhere.
Looks promising though.

There's a permadeath option, where...as in all permadeath cases, you lose everything and have to start from the very beginning. When playing normally you get to update your die and whatnot.

Gotta say, love we were given the option to have a small file size and low quality graphics/music, or download higher res graphics and better quality music. It's less than 100 MB after the initial App Store download and goes up a couple of hundred MBs after the high res download.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Actually the official release date was July 27 so not a surprise at all.

Did anyone take a dive and try it?

I enjoyed The Warlock of Firetop Mountain but that had a fun battle system and I'm not sure I'm sold on all the dice rolls here seen in the trailer.

Fun game so far!

I always thought of playing text-based RPG(or gamebook)
so I bought Sorcery! series

I can understand English a bit but I wanted to play Japanese language

so this game is perfect!


in the game
I came in to the candle shop, stare purple candle and passed out
and when I woke up, my gold was stolen

I laughed out loud

thanks

There is the option of permadeath as stated above, but also there are points on the map where the game "draws a card" from a "deck" based on the location you are in, so different things will happen to you in each play through.

For anyone on the fence about this one, take a look on YouTube (Fighting Fantasy Legends gameplay) - there's at least 6 short but successive gameplay videos from nomad showing your progress through a town including side quests and a couple of fights - gives a good impression of how the game plays.

Thanks for the pointer, looks right up my alley.

A question: how's the text on an iPhone 6? The video text was awfully small.

Besides including two other books, how is this different from the Tin Man Games version of Warlock of Firefox Mountain?
