A great aspect of this book is that your success in exploring the dungeon of Castle Argent will determine how well you fare against your enemy Zagor himself in the final battle. Special items are scattered around the dungeon, these little items are extremely important to find because Zagor is a tough foe in to defeat. However, I won't reveal them here!
Other interesting things include a nifty spell system, which can fully be used only by choosing the wizard character. However, casting spells against every foe in combat will drain your magic pretty fast, and there aren't many ways of replenishing it. Great touch anyway and entertaining to play.
Overall, a very good book, especially in having to find the tower chests! Some of them are very well hidden. Some of the big enemy monsters are extremely powerful foes and none of them are pushovers, making this game book very challenging.
The book also gets progressively nastier in combats and traps, as well, but the rewards get bigger. This is a cool Fighting Fantasy game book and definitely worth reading. It's one of the top five in the series in my humble opinion.
Like Zagor, everything in this adventure is done on a larger scale and this book somehow feels much larger than its 400 sections. Zagor is now a bigger threat, his new lair is far more extensive and he is surrounded by a retinue of quite dangerous and powerful allies, most notably the War Dragon which is far superior to the dragon who guarded Zagor in `Warlock of Firetop Mountain'. His book certainly has more tough fights than most FF adventures. But the author has prepared for this well by hiding a multitude of items and weapons within the castle that will seriously ipgrade your character. There are alos a lot of allies to be found who can prove quite useful.
The adventure also takes a radical approach to the traditional FF system by allowing you a choice of four separate characters; a knight, a dwarf, a wizard and a barbarian. Initially this seems like quite a good addition as each character is somewhat different and the author has hidden weapons and equipment unique to each. The challenge comes in trying to find the correct items to suit your character.Read more ›
