The Warlock of Firetop Mountain comes to iPhone
I shouldn’t be so excited about this.
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is back.
Ian Livingstone’s seminal work is twenty-seven years old this year. It created an entire genre of books the combined RPG elements with a linear narrative and solo player.
In fact, you could say that it was the start of a journey that would lead inexorably to Lara Croft and Modern Warfare 2.
Warlock wasn’t my favourite Choose Your Own Adventure book. That accolade goes to the Forest of Doom. But it was the first. And it’s about to come out on iPhone.
I have some concerns. The joy of having your fingers marking several places so you could follow the different choices to pick the best one. The inevitability of skipping battles. The joy of finishing.
I’d love to play it again.
Now, if only I had an iPhone.
Tell me your favourite Fighting Fantasy books. If I get enough suggestions, I might even put a poll up.
