• Make the gamebook as easy or hard as you like and even turn on a special cheat mode to read it old-school!
• Atmospheric new visuals which can be turned off to make the gamebook look like it came off the printing press in the 80s!
• Auto-mapping tracks your journey across Fire Island! See locations appear as you discover them!
• Iain McCaig’s famous cover brought to life. The Lizard King has never been this terrifying!

Great stuff This game book has a lot more action and a breadth of choices than some of the others. The element of the slaves revolting and all this happening on a tropical island was an added strength. If you are still undecided and wanted to try one, I suggest Island of the Lizard King.

Ricardo Barbas

Great Adaptation One of the first FF books I've played, and it's still good, even if it isn't among the best (that goes to books like Deathtrap Dungeon and City of Thieves). The adaptation is flawless.

Louise Wright

Fighting fantasy Loved these books, after seeing tom baker introduce them on the book tower. Hope they do warlock of firetop mountain.

Ashley Cronk

love this series easily one of my favorite Fighting Fantasy books - now if they would only put out Deathtrap Dungeon and Warlock of Firetop Mountain....


Yet another outstanding game Brings back memories...this was the first FF book I ever read and it got me hooked on the series. Can't wait for the rest if them! TinMan Games has done another outstanding job in making this gamebook.

Jordan Calderwood

Mixed feelings Loved it at first but got to an area where its impossible for me to get past. Why would I want to read half a book and then start again. I know its not supposed to be easy but when everything relys on chance it's just unfair.

George Mills

Awesomeness Deathtrap dungeon next please. Loved that book. Can't believe they released the fighting fantasy books I used to read as a app. So pleased :)

Paul Webb

Fantastic This was my first FF as a kid. This version is just as good. Would recommend to any fans of the genre. The achievements idea is a nice touch. Can we have Trial of Champions next please?

Simon Monk

Classic!! My favourite out of the original FF books, IOTLK is a fast paced jungle adventure. Well balanced story with Livingstone creating a wonderfully detailed environment to make ways through. Can't wait for the upcoming Bloodbones!!

Robert Matthews

Brill! One of the few (very few) that I never got the chance to read in school, but definitely one of the best. Only complaint is that it can be completed just by rushing to the end; as long as you know where to find the Key Items on your way.

Darren Harmon

Great Memories An ideal way to relive my childhood today. Bring out more please :-)

Ashley Hodgetts

Great piece of nostalgia. Hopefully we will see the Citedal of Chaos.

william sharpnack

Love these games! I just love playing these Fighting Fantasy games.Keep em coming & I'll keep playing them.

David Neal

Great adaption Another great adaptation of one of my first fighting fantasy books. Just can't wait for deathtrap dungeon

A Google User

Excellent. Love it. Now give me deathtrap dungeon and ill be in heaven.

Stephen Jacques

Gonchong!!! Book 7 to all the old school FFers! It doesn't disappoint! Far from it...what you have here is a perfect digital version of the classic book. Off to Fire Island once more, Livingstone's awesome story is yet again presented here for all time for those who weren't around when it first came out in print. Addictive to the last, it has rekindled my love of the FF books, so much so I've had to crack out Deathtrap Dungeon (the real book) as I can't wait for the TMG version to come out!

John Menary

Running fine! Had not been able to start this since the most recent update. Dumped back to home screen. Edit: Moved to USB storage. Updated files downloaded, all good!!!

Demelza Kula

Thrilled !!!! Amazing I had the original books as a child and led me to draw and take art at GCSE in turn fine art at college and finally Design and Technology at university all steamed from the imagination fun and graphics of these Books brought back to life as apps amazing please do more and number the digital books :) I'd love to see and buy the whole collection ;)

Anthony Peacock

All the nostalgia A great reproduction of the original book. I had forgotten how hard it could be. Yay for fingers in pages

Mark Riordan

Fantastic! Excellent old school action that translates well to the electronic medium. Highly recommended and top notch support!

Jake Sorenson

Amazing I Need more of these, every ff release has been perfect. I eagerly await a mobile version of city of thieves, I pray tinman games makes one

TK Yang

Love it love it Only problem is they can't release these fast enough!

Dan Graves

Old school fantasy! More adventure from the world of fighting fantasy, this is a great title with plenty of action, sword wielding lizard men, giant beasties, shamen magic and even a monkey! Having loads of fun playing these, please release more soon!

Mark Wright

E-version of the original If you loved the original then you will love this

Dan Voice

Awesome Just shut up and take my money :)

Colin Deady

Great adventure, fantastically presented. IoTLK has always been one of my favourite FF adventures and TMG have done a fine job in converting it to Android. The interface works very well and the whole experience is great fun. Buy it!

Jon Francis

Fighting Fantasy! Another great Fighting Fantasy Gamebook. Tinman's Gamebook engine really does bring these books to life. Love the music and the artwork looks great in colour. The inclusion of a map is a great feature. 5 stars.

Richard Cope

Lizards control the world... Well, Fire Island, anyway. Another classic Fighting Fantasy gamebook brought to life by TinMan Games - stunning artwork (now with colour!) great story and a very useful map that updates as you explore the island (Titan GPS?) Enjoy...! :-)

David Convery

It's good but where is the intro movie Working fine now thanks guys! Warlock of Firetop mountain please

John McNichol

FF & Tin Man, the perfect partnership This is an auto buy and an auto 5 stars, such is the consistently brilliant marriage of tin man and FF. Tin Man games put in a lot of effort and love into these books not to mention awesome support and community interaction. They deserve your purchase.

james wazalis

An enjoyable action adventure title that is sure to please.

Roberto Buttazzoni

Love these books This book really takes me back, will keep buying them soon as new ones come out. Thank you for publishing them again. ?

Jeff Tummons

Trip down memory lane This was one of my favorite FF books as a kid, and this is even better. But, where is "warlock of Firetop mountain" or "Deathtrap Dungeon"? those were the best ones!

Stephen Appleby

Nostalgia overload Excellent versions of the books we aired as children.

Daniel D

Great Love these books . It's like going back to my childhood an being back in school . Anyway was wondering when you will be releasing more because it's been quite a while since the last one ?
