About

Only the foolhardy would risk an encounter with the unknown perils that lurk in the murky depths of Darkwood Forest. Yet there is no alternative, for your quest is a desperate race against time to find the missing pieces of the legendary Hammer of Stonebridge – fashioned by Dwarfs to protect the villagers of Stonebridge against their ancient doom.

Computer gaming was in its infancy and it was the early days of tabletop RPGs when Ian Livingstone's The Forest of Doom exploded into bookshops in the early 80s, proudly displaying Iain McCaig’s iconic cover.

Relive the adventures in Darkwood Forest, lovingly updated for PC, Mac and Linux. Presented in full colour with realistic physics-based dice rolling for battles, auto-mapping, an auto-updated adventure sheet and stat keeping.

The Forest of Doom reviews and comments

Yes, well, well, I had to try... Do I do it at D6 or D6? As exciting as a form of administration or my tax return... If Yes, go to the topic...

For the fanatics of the JDR-and those who read the books of which we were the heros. We read and turn the pages as the story progresses! attention we do not go back in the forest! then to validate all the objects I advise you to note precisely the places!

A nice little game in the pure tradition of the book game of which one is the hero but well the quest asks all the same to follow a path and to fight the fights on condition to have a very strong skill without it it is fast boring to always start again... but it's still a good base game.

Here is the digital version of "a book of which you are the heros". Strengths:-no need for paper and pencil to mark what you have in your inventory or your life points. You just have the pleasure of following the story and choices. :)-It's available in French. :) Inconvenients:-too short conclusion: a little game to pass the time.

hard-to-read translations, an inventory that does not want to be displayed, adapting to the fast-moving of a dispensable volume of the saga of which you are the hero. There were so many great adventures to adapt, why did you choose this one? The adventure in this forest is not dictated by your decisions, just by totally random path choices. Fortunately, I had this game in a humble Bundle Pack, paying for this abomination alone would be a scam.

a book of which you are the hero, I had done when it was released in book at the time! but it's quite another thing with colorful illustrations because on the book they were black and white. no need to use writing to blacken paper pencil the adventure sheet or toss the dice by hand. a simple game to understand but beware of the choice you will be asked for because death can watch you... your adventure ends here. to try absolutely for those who have not experienced one of the masterpieces of fantastic challenges.

I can not recommend this game. The value for money is simply not there. I really like the principle and was a fan of the books you are the hero but hey, don't push Grandma in the nettles... With a little logic (and luck) you will end the games in 4-5 hours in normal. You are free to lengthen the sauce in difficult mode, for an identical game, with a weaker character and thus tougher fights. The games could have been worth its price with a larger card, illustrations and dialogues (translation) a little more chiadé... Not worth more than €5 ($) and if only you are a fan of the genre.
