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

“An energising and hilariously funny version of Hamlet, Ryan North's To Be Or Not To Be is a crucial gamebook for literature buffs and comedy fans alike”
9/10 – Pocketgamer

“This game is utterly uproarious, and Tin Man did a great job at using their gamebook engine, along with their visual and music touches, at making this come to life.”
5/5 – Touch Arcade

“...an idea that is, by most conventional literary standards, terrible, but pushed so far past terrible that it wraps around like a comet slingshotting around the sun and comes back as utterly brilliant.”

A Vagrant), Anthony Clark (Nedroid), Mike Krahulik (Penny Arcade), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), Ethan Nicolle (Axe Cop), Andrew Hussie (MS Paint Adventures), Zach Weiner (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal) and WAY more than I can fit in this paragraph.
