Seas of Blood

Genre: RPG
Rating: 3.5/6

System: Gamebook, ZX Spectrum
[Mr Creosote] Seas of Blood… this is going to be a tough discussion for me, because I have to admit this was the gamebook which I read/played more often than any other when I was a kid. Whether this was due to thematic preference, due to gameplay-related strengths or other aspects, we will probably find out. However, I cannot guarantee that I can stay objective at all times. Please excuse the occasional drift into nostalgia.

Temple of Terror

Genre: RPG
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Gamebook, ZX Spectrum
[LostInSpace] Pencils sharpened and dice ready (or should I say: dice throwing app launched?). Our journey leads us to the Temple of Terror. Let's hope it's not all in the name. A lonesome adventurer just happens to be a the Stonebridge court at the wrong time and learns that all of Allansia is threatened by the dark proceedings of the evil Malbordus. Travelling to the Temple of Terror, he is supposed to take the dragon artefacts hidden there to safety, because they would enable the dark elf to conjure a dragon which would take him to an army in the Forest of Doom, ready to bring death and despair over the land.

The Citadel of Chaos

Puffin Books 1983
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Gamebook, C64

[Herr M.] If you were to judge a book strictly by its name, today’s title sets the bar quite high: The Citadel of Chaos frankly sounds rather cool. It promises whimsical magic, rolls of the tongue and hints at even greater things to come. So, the question we are going to ask today is: Does the content match its wrapping?


The Forest of Doom

Puffin Books 1983
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Gamebook, C64

On planet Allansia, our hero travels across the Northern Borderlands without meeting a single soul. Until one night, he is wakened from his sleep only to witness the final words of a dying dwarf called Bigleg. His mission to take a legendary weapon of war to Gillibran, the king of dwarves, at the edge of Darkwood, failed. It has been stolen in an ambush. Without this weapon, the dwarf kingdom of Stonebridge is in danger from warmongering trolls. Bigleg promises our nameless hero great riches if he can find the war hammer again and bring it to its rightful owner. Then he dies right under our eyes.


The Warlock of Firetop Mountain

Rating: 2.5/6

System: Gamebook, ZX Spectrum

[Mr Creosote] This one is going to be unusual for our website, because normally it revolves around games in a digital form. Today we are going to talk about a ‘gamebook’. And, as might have been expected, we did not just pick one at random, but the gamebook itself: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain. Yet I have to tone down a bit: Actually it is already our second gamebook on the site. The other one has been hidden for about 14 years in the comics section.
