Game Information

Available on:PCAug 31, 2016

Developer: Tin Man Games

Genre: Adventure

The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is a tabletop adventure come to life! This fantasy solo RPG combines unique, simultaneous turn-based combat with a journey that changes based on each figurine you take into Firetop Mountain! Which hero will you take into Zagor's lair THIS time? The original 1982 Fighting Fantasy paperback by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson has been transformed into an epic domain, with new areas to explore, characters to meet, and of course, monsters to slay! Zagor's home builds right before your eyes as you travel deep into the belly of the mountain. Each character has their own motivations for being in Firetop Mountain, changing the way the gamebook is written and choices presented. Combat is fought using the digital miniatures in a simultaneous, real-time system called GridBluff, and the game includes over 100 unique hero and monster figurines to discover.

An inspired adaptation of the old Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, that’s also one of the most unique and fun roguelikes of recent years.

Firetop Mountain itself becomes a little 3D board, rather than the hulking, ominous sprawl of fond imagining.

Replayability is great if you don't mind grinding a little.

Warlock of Firetop Mountain is a unique experience that takes a single-player adventure book and translates it into a digital experience. While fun at times, this title is bogged down by delayed controls in spots and long load times.
