Choose-your-own-adventure classic Deathtrap Dungeon out now on iPhone
You can't keep your finger in the previous page any more
I still have original paperback copies of the Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston choose-your-own-adventure books, with severely broken spines from keeping three fingers jammed inside previous pages in case I came face to face with a barbarian I couldn't handle.
Developer Big Blue Bubble has spoken with us about its intentions to bring the Fighting Fantasy series of classic gaming books to iPhone, which began with the original The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
But Firetop Mountain isn't the book that aging fans of the 59-strong series will immediately leap upon. Deathtrap Dungeon is widely considered to be the pinnacle of the franchise, and it's iPhone adaptation has just rolled its dice on the App Store.
"Countless adventurers before you have taken up thee challenge of the Trial of Champions, but not one has survived. Devised by the devilish mind of Baron Sukumvit, the labyrinth is riddled with fiendish traps and hideous creatures of darkness to trick and test you almost beyond the limits of endurance!"
Stuff it. I'm not doing any work today. I'm going into the dungeon. Care to join me? Hit the App Store button and test your luck.
