The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (by Tin Man Games) now on Steam!

As if you didn't already have a reason to visit Steam, Tin Man Games, who have done a sterling job converting some of our favourite Fighting Fantasy adventures into apps, have just released their amazing reimagining of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain on the online gaming platform.

That first 'left or right' decision!

This is a game in an altogether different league: part gamebook, part boardgame, part video game, it's a visually glorious adaptation of FF's first adventure. I've just purchased it (at £14.99, so certainly a step up in price from the other FF adaptations by Tin Man and Inkle Studios), and it looks great. I'm looking forward to having a proper play and will report back on my progress here.


  1. with all due respect, no computer game could ever recapture the intense thrill one got from reading / playing the early FF books, especially TWOFM.

    having said that, I am looking forward to your review !

  2. did you ever get around to playing that game ?

    1. Not properly yet. The start of semester has overwhelmed me, not much time for anything else recently! Hopefully soon.
