Holy crap, now I have to buy another one! I didn't think they'd release it this quickly... I kinda liked the system in this book better, but I never got far into it.

Now let's just wait for the rest of them that I don't have the books of.

Well, this has gotten an underwhelming amount of attention...

Either way, impressions in a few. It already seems to be improved, and that's just from the stat rolling.

The first one was excellent, nice to see more of these coming out. Still hoping that "Sorcery!" books also make the list, that would be awesome!

Mission Europa 2 is coming!!!

Hell... after the Warlock now this. The book I loved most. So, what shall I do? I have to buy it...

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.

If someone owns all three (I know one is from a different company) can they recommend which one to start with.

Warlock and Deathtrap are from Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston. Deathtrap Dungeon is dificult - to get an idea, it's maybe better to start with the Warlock. It was the first in the series.
Altough DD has the better story...

Assassin is from another company.

Alright, well I bought both FF books and tested Assassin, and they're all equally easy to start on. I recommend Deathtrap Dungeon over Firetop Mountain if you want to go with the Fighting Fantasy games. Assassin is REALLY awesome though. It's all about the story you want and what you can afford. Also thy have somewhat different combat systems, both with their ups and downs. I suggest getting Deathtrap Dungeon as it's a lower price, but lower quality, to see if you like these kinds of games, then get Assassin if you decide you do.

And I have encountered my first issue. When I went east and drank the liquid behind the bamboo, the next page didn't give me the option to select that I had taken the drink. I got the stamina recovery from it, but it might not be registering that I obtained the drink.

Sweet! Man, that was fast!! Must download now!

Also, there was a FF tweet that announced the first book in the Sorcery! series coming to iPhone later this month. Check out the official FF website for further details. Should be AWESOME!
