As Titan City’s courageous and incorruptible champion of law and order, use your super powers to protect its innocent citizens from the danger and deviousness of a host of super-villains bent on taking over the world! Your mission is to discover the location of the top-secret FEAR meeting, capture the Titanium Cyborg and his cohorts and bring them to justice.


Originally a 1985 Fighting Fantasy gamebook, Appointment With FEAR was unique in that it featured superhero characters instead of the more standard swords and sorcery. This dynamic edition embraces the comic feel further, stylizing it as an interactive graphic novel.

  • Choose your gender for a fully customizable super hero!
  • Different super powers to choose from which give unique styles of play!
  • Awesome comic book stylized presentation! A graphic novel which you control!
  • Over thirty supervillains to fight! Beat Tiger Cat, Chainsaw Bronski and more!
