Warlock of Firetop Mountain comes to PSP
Only the other day we were talking about the famous Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
And now news has reached us that the original Fighting Fantasy adventure book is set for a contemporary conversion onto the PSP as a PlayStation Mini (ie mini-game).
Not so much a game, really, as an interactive e-book type affair, developer Laughing Jackal presents the virtual pages of the classic Firetop Mountain, but with extra trimmings.
An interactive inventory, for example, and on-screen dice, along with a fresh tile-based combat system which sounds quite novel.
A log book is also provided to show which pages you’ve visited, where you’ve had fights and so forth.
New for this second incarnation – the first game in the series was the Talisman of Death – is the option for the user to return to the top of the page swiftly, as well as some enhancements to the log book.
These were all introduced after fan feedback pointed out shortcomings in the original.
A mini-game has been added to the end of the quest, too, although Laughing Jackal won’t say what it involves to avoid any spoilers.
If nothing else, attempting to plunder the Warlock’s dungeons once again will be quite the blast of nostalgia, taking you back to 1982. Try and solve a Rubix cube afterwards if you want to go for the maximum retro factor (and not by taking the stickers off).
The Fighting Fantasy books have sold more than 16 million copies globally in the last few decades.
