We’ve brought an exciting new feature to Fighting Fantasy Classics – maps!

The maps of Fighting Fantasy Classics are a throwback to the old-school Fighting Fantasy experience; grabbing a scrap of paper and plotting out the locations you’ve explored. Perhaps while investigating Port Blacksand, searching Darkwood Forest for the Hammer of Gillibran, or fighting your way to victory in the Trial of Champions.

To access the map feature you will first need to update to the latest version of the app. Then, start any adventure afresh and the map icon will appear. It is found in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.

When you start a new adventure, let’s say in City of Thieves, you will (of course) begin at the City Gate of Port Blacksand. Your present location is indicated by a small flag as shown below.

As you progress, arrows automatically appear between the locations you visit, creating a handy reference for the path you have chosen during your adventure. In the playthrough of City of Thieves shown below I’ve chosen to follow Key Street.

Now unfortunately I was unable to take down Zanbar Bone during my first playthrough. But, determined as I am to save the goodfolk of Silverton, I embark upon my quest again, this time deciding to investigate Market Street.

As you can see, the game has preserved both my previous playthrough and my current playthrough – with the path of my previous playthrough becoming slightly transparent. This allows you to keep track of all the parts of a game you have explored in both past and current playthroughs.

We hope you enjoy your adventures using this new feature! Maps are freely available with all gamebooks and will continue to be released alongside future updates.

If you are yet to try out Fighting Fantasy Classics it’s available on iOS and Android and every player gets Jonathan Green’s swashbuckling pirate adventure Bloodbones free with their download. We’re planning on continuing to update  Fighting Fantasy Classics with new adventures, the first being Deathtrap Dungeon, which you can expect to appear on your bookshelf in the next fortnight.
