** REVIEWS **

"Telling a gripping yarn with the trademark exceptional adventure gamebook gameplay, Island of the Lizard King is quite the delight." - 148Apps, 4.5/5

"Rip-roaring tale of classic adventure and derring-do, pitched at an excellent difficulty level for the digital format." - Gamezebo, 4/5

I always loved playing Fighting Fantasy books as a kid and had over fifty of the original books. Tin Man have done a great job with all of the FF releases so far, and I am eagerly awaiting the next release. If you like the Chose your own adventure type of book, then the Fighting Fantasy books are a great place to begin. The rules are clearly explained and the gaming system works flawlessly. I particularly like the bonuses you get with the Game app such as the achievement section and the map automatically being created as you play. The next releases I would love to see are City of Thieves, Deathtrap Dungeon and The Legend of Zagor. Keep up the good work Tin Man, you have won yourselves a loyal customer!

Like others, it would seem, I am busy working my way through the tin man adaptations of the original fighting fantasy books and loving them. This is no exception, another great read / game so dive on in there!

I've bought and thoroughly enjoyed all of the FF releases. I managed to get through at the first attempt and I'd like to replay just to see if some of equipment I collected was truly essential. This is the strength of these games.

One minor gripe - in that the two places where I probably needed the map the most is where it didn't appear!! Namely the mines and the prison.

This is a minor observation though and I heartily recommend this gamebook, I just wish the original source material was longer.

Please TMG - keep up the stellar work and release more FF titles!

The dice rolling system is extremely biased against you. Actually lost 8 rolls in a row, and died.
This was about 1 minute 30 seconds into my adventure!!
