** REVIEWS **
"Caverns of the Snow Witch is a classic gamebook, and this digital version reinvigorates it for a digital generation. It's fast, it's fun, and its story of icy tundra and giant dragons is worth sticking with until the end." - Pocket Gamer - 8 out 10 - Silver Award
"...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." - Touch Arcade - 4 out of 5
"Fans of the original will also appreciate that they can switch the visuals to a 1980s style gamebook appearance, away from the more stylish modern looks that Tin Man Games offers. It ensures that Fighting Fantasy: Caverns of the Snow Witch really is the best of both worlds. 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." - 148Apps - 4 out of 5
"Caverns of the Snow Witch is a great blast from the past, perfect for the winter months." - Starburst Magazine - 8 out of 10
