Product Description

The Citadel of Chaos brings the next installment of the popular game book series Fighting Fantasy by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone to Kindle.

A game book is an interactive story. As you read you will make decisions as to which way to go, what to say to other characters, and what to do with items you might find. As a result of your choices you may cleverly solve problems, or even be drawn into battle. Battles are fought by rolling dice and comparing your skill results with those of your foe.

Inside the Citadel of Chaos the dread sorcerer, Balthus Dire, plots the downfall of the good folk of the Vale of Willow. His battle plans are laid, his army equipped, and attack is imminent. As an aspiring wizard, you undertake a mission to strike at the heart of Balthus.

Winning your battles may grant you valuable prizes to help on your quest, but failure... well, the skeletons on the floor have to come from somewhere! A convenient in-game map tracks places you have visited, items, or monsters encountered.

You are the hero! You decide which route to take, which dangers to risk, and which creatures to fight. But be warned - it will also be you who has to live or die by the consequences of your actions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faithful to the era April 12, 2011

Just as enjoyable to play now as they were 30(?) years ago. And that's something considering the age increase.
The map looks just great. And the game style, mechanics and atmosphere play out nicely.
I have tried both iPhone and Kindle versions of this game, And the Kindle is more enjoyable to play, Despite the lack of color.
Definitely recommended addition to your Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection April 25, 2011

I grew up reading the Fighting Fantasy books. Now after checking out the first title on Kindle, I can see that this is the perfect format for the books. Outstanding! I am very much looking forward to future titles--I will be buying them all!

I used to like gamebooks quite a bit when I was a kid, so I thought I'd see how they worked in Kindle format. I was really impressed with some features, including the map and the waypoint system, and I thought the story was reasonably entertaining, though not among the best I've seen in a gamebook. I also loved the detailed illustrations included.

That being said, I have some quibbles. Considering how many times you die, it would be nice if you could save your character before you start your adventure, instead of having to rebuild them every single time; in a real gamebook I would erase my character's inventory as opposed to writing out a new character sheet every single time.

There is also the occasional bug to be worked out. For instance, in one section, a spell you are supposed to receive does not get added to your inventory, and in another area, it is possible to use an item that you don't have. None of them are gamebreaking or even particularly bad, but I still feel like this is an issue that really should have been caught before it was sold in the Kindle store, and I hope that other Kindle gamebooks from this publisher don't suffer from the same issue.

On the whole though, it's pretty cool to see these on an e-reader, and this one is definitely worth checking out if you're into gamebooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great installment from Worldweaver November 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
What's funny is, I never really enjoyed Citadel of Chaos in the book form. Not sure why. But I got it for the Kindle and had a great time with it, even though I died repeatedly, never remembering how to get past the godawful Ganjees. (The book presents all the options to avoid them, but the Kindle version only presents the options reflecting the items you have in your possession, so if you don't have a thing, it doesn't ask if you want to use that thing, which makes sense). But I really enjoyed the Kindle version. The magical powers are handled seamlessly and add a chaotic and fun element to an already chaotic and fun experience. And, by fooling around various places and trying different things, I found a way to get through the book with a minimum of combat. Now it's time to find a way with a *maximum* of combat. :) If you like the fighting fantasy style books, check this one out. It's got all the cool stuff from the series plus magic, and you can't go wrong there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well-done but frustrating. March 18, 2014
By BadWolf

The Citadel of Chaos is well written, fun to play, and a good time-killer if that's what you're looking for.
It also made me want to throw my kindle out of the window.
I died so often and had to re-do so many things unless I cast a stamina spell that saved your place. I usually didn't use it, though, 'cuz I hated wasting my precious spells. And thus, I was stuck in the never-ending cycle of getting really far, not casting the stamina spell, dying, and having to go through everything that I'd already done.
But all-in-all I'd suggest buying it. It was fun and I enjoyed it for the most part.
When I didn't have the almost irresistible urge to smash my kindle with a big rock.
As you can see, I'm not the most patient person on this planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again fighting to survive March 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
Works great on Paperwhite 2nd gen.
Once again great transfer from Book to Kindle. They left just like the book all way to the super difficult ending.
The map is wonderfully done and really helps you out in a pinch. Dice rolling are pretty random, if using the Full dice mode you have a better chance of getting the rolls you need.
