05.01.10 - 4:18 PM

It's time to "choose your own adventure." Actually, that's another brand of books. The Fighting Fantasy game-book series was big in the '80s, and it's making a resurgence in unlikely places: namely, the DS and iPhone.

The iPhone games developed so far are essentially the same game-books, now in a digital format. But the DS game Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is a first-person Action RPG in the same vein as an Elder Scrolls title. Just, not nearly as impressive.

To learn about the ups and downs of this DS game from newcomer developer "Big Blue Bubble," read our review by clicking the link below.
