Deep within the Crystal Caves of Icefinger Mountains, the dreaded Snow Witch is plotting to bring on a new ice age. A brave trapper dies in your arms and lays the burden of his mission on your shoulders. But time is running out – will YOU take up the challenge? An original fantasy adventure in which YOU are the hero, from Ian Livingstone and Tin Man Games.


Originally written by Ian Livingstone in 1984, Caverns of the Snow Witch celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2014. The ninth book in the Fighting Fantasy series, it expands upon the original version published in WARLOCK magazine, taking you beyond the Crystal Caves. In celebration of the 30th anniversary, all-new colour artwork by a variety of artists has been included.


  • 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!
  • Les Edwards’ famous cover brought to life.
  • Gary Ward and Edward Crosby’s classic illustrations included along with new, full color illustrations specifically for this edition!
  • Achievements to find throughout the gamebook.

  • "All in all, it's a very solid gamebook, and if you've enjoyed any of Tin Man's other conversions of Livingstone's work, it's a journey worth embarking on."
    - Shaun Musgrave, Touch Arcade
  • "It’s nostalgic yet offers features that we all wished we had back in the day, like fast dice. That’s a great combination that easily continues Tin Man Games’s reign as a fine purveyor of classic adventure game books."
