New Fighting Fantasy Classics 25% OFF!

TRIAL OF CHAMPIONS has arrived! The sequel to Deathtrap Dungeon joins a stellar roster of fantasy adventures in Fighting Fantasy Classics - the ultimate library of text-based role playing games. And to celebrate, it's 25% OFF! Check it out here.



Trial of Champions sees you delve into the dread corridors of Baron Sukumvit’s terrible challenge for a second stab at glory. But beware! The Trial will be even more devilishly difficult this time as you begin your adventure having been captured and sold into slavery! With nothing to prepare you for this arduous adventure but your SKILL, LUCK and STAMINA, you must explore the deadly labyrinth beneath Fang. For only by triumphing in the Trial can you win back your freedom from Baron Sukumvit’s evil brother – Lord Carnuss.

Will it be enough?!

Find out for yourself and pick up this classic title while it's just 2.99 USD.

Also joining the Fighting Fantasy Classics shelf is another old favourite – Steve Jackson’s House of Hell. We’ve remastered this title for the Fighting Fantasy Classics library, so it can take its rightful place amongst your collection. It is also 25% OFF for a limited time.



House of Hell’s addition to the library comes with a handful of updates including:
  • Adventure Sheet now includes 'Fear' mechanic.
  • Knowledge Sheet to track the clues you discover.
  • Tim Sell’s original artwork, as well as coloured editions of each piece.
  • Haunted Hallways ambient track added.
  • Achievements added for both Trial of Champions and House of Hell.



Whether you're heading into the depths of the labyrinth beneath the city of Fang, or braving the haunted halls of the House of Drumer, may LUCK be with you and your STAMINA never fail!

Reviews

“Age has done little to dim the power of the book, and its new digital clothing allows it to shine brighter than ever before.”
9/10 – Pocketgamer

“This is one of the classics of the genre and it has been given the usual royal treatment from the developer.”
4/5 – Touch Arcade

“It’s the kind of experience that reminds one what fun interactive fiction can be, as well as making the promise of new Fighting Fantasy titles from Tin Man Games soon, all the more exciting.”
4.5/5 – 148Apps

About This Game

Only the foolhardy would risk an encounter with the unknown perils that lurk in the murky depths of Darkwood Forest. Yet there is no alternative, for your quest is a desperate race against time to find the missing pieces of the legendary Hammer of Stonebridge – fashioned by Dwarfs to protect the villagers of Stonebridge against their ancient doom.

Computer gaming was in its infancy and it was the early days of tabletop RPGs when Ian Livingstone's The Forest of Doom exploded into bookshops in the early 80s, proudly displaying Iain McCaig’s iconic cover.

Relive the adventures in Darkwood Forest, lovingly updated for PC, Mac and Linux. Presented in full colour with realistic physics-based dice rolling for battles, auto-mapping, an auto-updated adventure sheet and stat keeping.

This Standalone edition of The Forest of Doom gamebook comes specially themed to suit the adventure. The Forest of Doom is also available in a traditional version as part of the Fighting Fantasy Classics library.
