Fighting Fantasy Classics reviews and comments

When I was a kid, I loved reading LDVELH. When I was smaller, I found a role-playing Club (AD&D and Shadowrun, to name just a few) that I was part of for about ten years. Now I'm great and I have installed fighting fantasy classics and tested blood bones. And it reminded me of old memories. And it reminded me how badly these books are written. And it reminded me why I stopped reading these books: because it embodies a brain-free adventurer. In the game room, after the bouncer has specified "no fight, here", I give a bet to the type that manipulates the cards (it's my choice)... I am convinced that he cheats, I return all his cards (it's my choice)... Indeed, it cheats, so I shoot my sword and I get Rosser by the bouncer (no choice is directly the text)... I would never think to let everyone see that I am dealing with a cheat to get reimbursed in the temples district, I run from under to a fortune teller (it's my choice), he turns a card that I do not like , I try to give him a sword (it is not a choice, it is directly the text). ATTACKING A SAGE IN THE TEMPLES DISTRICT! NO, BUT HELLO, WHAT! In short, I will never know the end of the story because I uninstall. If you want LDVELH really well done, do a quick search, we find very good on the Internet, free, which are not limited to 400 paragraphs and thus give you much more choice and therefore far fewer dumb situations.

Dear Tin Man Games, I am literally IN LOVE with your work and your fantastic digital adaptations (almost all of which I have purchased) of our beloved paper GameBooks. Together with Inkle Developers you made the dream of GameBook lovers come true... but... After releasing this new “Library App” (to collect all your Digital Interactive GameBooks in one single App) you surprisingly declared in your Website Blog that users who already purchased your digital GameBooks in the old format (separate individual Apps) will NOT have them transferred to this new Library App with the new engine (without even explaining why) ... astonishingly implying that we will have no choice but to have your collection hopelessly divided in two separate formats: - some of your collection (your already purchased GameBooks) in individual Apps tidily organized in an iPhone Folder (which for us wasn’t absolutely a problem, that’s what iPhone folders are for, to orderly group Collections) with the old engine. - and some inside your new Library App, there downloadable as In-App purchases, with the new engine HUGE BUSINESS MISTAKE... You must be surely aware that nobody likes to have Book collections irreversibly separated in 2 formats/storages and that, most importantly, now we strongly suspect that when a future new third format comes out from you, you very likely will tell us again that Books purchased in the the old formats (including in this current Library App) won’t be transferred... I strongly suggest you to figure out a way (is it really that hard, considering the consequences?) to allow users to download in this new Library App the already purchases old-format Books or you must surely be aware that VERY FEW of us will ever trust you in purchasing any of your great work again (old or new engine) knowing that you don’t mind us having your collection fragmented into 2 or more storage formats. Please don’t lose our trust forever with a bad business decision. ps Migrations apart, for the majority of users is much more preferred storage of individual BookApps in a Smarphone folders than inside a “Developer restricted” Library App since the first allows us to create “Themed Folders” and, most importantly, allows to include GameBooks from other Developers... most of us preferred the individual Apps system and the direction you are taking is definitely not seen as an improvement by the community.
