The Forest of Doom is a digital Fighting Fantasy gamebook, an interactive adventure in which YOU are the hero! You can only win through by choosing the correct path, finding equipment, avoiding traps and surviving combat. Proudly displaying an animated version of Iain McCaig’s iconic cover of the Shape Changer, the app allows readers to risk the unknown perils of Darkwood Forest with a desperate quest against time to find the missing pieces of the legendary Hammer of Stonebridge.
Tin Man Games has taken the classic Fighting Fantasy solo adventure and transformed it into an interactive digital experience, using its critically acclaimed gamebook engine. With animated page-turning, dynamic links, an automated adventure sheet to show changing stats and display magical treasures, the reader can also roll physics-based 3D dice to bravely battle the creatures found within Darkwood Forest. A retro mode has been included for nostalgic Fighting Fantasy fans, which displays Malcolm Barter’s classic black and white illustrations, while those readers who want full colour can see those same images beautifully rendered by John-Paul Bove, notable colourist in recent Transformers comics. Darkwood Forest is a tricky place to find your way around, so a new game engine feature is the addition of a map that auto-updates as you travel from location to location.
