Blood of the Zombies

Blood of the Zombies

Fighting Fantasy co-creator Ian Livingstone OBE brings the world’s original gamebook series – 30 years old in August – to the world of the zombie…

Terrible things are happening in Goraya castle. Insane megalomaniac Gingrich Yurr is preparing to unleash an army of monstrous zombies upon the world. He must be stopped and his undead horde defeated. In this life-or-death adventure the decisions YOU make will decide the fate of the world. Can YOU survive or will YOU become a zombie too?

Narrative-driven, and with simplified combat and gameplay, this is a Fighting Fantasy gamebook for the 21st century.


  • 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!
  • Greg Staples’ cover brought to life and animated!
  • Kevin Crossley’s illustrations colorised for the app, making full use of high-resolution displays.
  • Alternate cover artwork to unlock!
  • Achievements to find throughout the gamebook.

Blood of the Zombies has been created using Tin Man Games’ critically acclaimed Gamebook Adventures Engine featuring:

  • Read the book horizontally or vertically on your tablet.
  • An automated Adventure Sheet to keep track of stats and inventory.
  • Realistic physics based dice rolling. Shake your device!
  • Artwork gallery. Find an illustration in the gamebook and be able to access it full-screen forever.
  • Bookmarking system which saves your position in the gamebook, much like putting your fingers between the pages to remember your previous page when reading the paperback!
  • Specially composed soundtrack and sound effects.
