Inspired by the Fighting Fantasy gamebook by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson, but not authorised or part of the official computer game tie-in series.

This version is not to be confused with the official computer game of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, which was an arcade-adventure game that bears no resemblance to the original book.

I've just noticed a spectrum version for sale on Ebay So I've added spectrum to the platforms.

Alex, are you absolutely certain that it is the Ken Rose adventure and not the official Puffin Books / Crystal Computing release?

Strident (27-04-2021 05:58)

Yes, as pointed out, the Spectrum game of that name is an action/arcade game; rather than an adventure.

Should this particular adventure game even be listed in the "Fighting Fantasy" series on here? It is not an official part of that series.

Also, thought it was strange that "Ken Rose" is listed as the author of this, given it's a Quilled C64 game and his other games are all old Apple/Atari BASIC titles. Gamerbase lists "Ken Rigby" as the author...

You are both absolutely right, of course. I shouldn't be doing multiple things at once :). Now you mention it I actually knew there is no official text adventure release for the Warlock. I got confused because this game has been added as related. Since it's not part of the official releases I don't think it should be mentioned in the list because when we do we should also mention for example and they are not related to the official series.

I agree. I've removed it from the list as it only adds to the confusion.
