Just wanted to announce that we've just released a digital compendium of all four Sagas of the Demonspawn gamebooks by Herbie Brennan, titled The Complete Sagas of Fire*Wolf. We've had some new artwork commissioned and modified the rules system so it's a LOT easier to play. It's available for Apple and Android smart phones and tablets, as well as PC, Mac and Linux via Humble.
Oh God, who remembers those combat rules from the original books? Classic case of a 'programmer's' thought process rather than a writer or a designer. In other words: utter illogical unplayable crap
Author of 'Hellfire', 'Riders of the Storm', 'House of Pain' (sequel to House of Hell) and 'Deathtrap' (prequel to Deathtrap Dungeon). All are available for download here or at: www.ffproject.com/download.htm
It would be excusable if all that complexity actually led to a balanced combat system (something few gamebooks can boast of). But no, it was actually one of the most unbalanced systems I've ever come across.
