Another winning entry in the FIGHTING FANTASY book series. This one adopts a Caribbean theme with its emphasis on a lush tropical island ruled by some slave-owning lizard men and all manner of sun-scorched nastiness.From the outset, this one has a strong story, with the set-up and background a delight to read. It throws you into the thick of the adventure as soon as you arrive on the island; there seems to be a great deal more combat than in other books in the series, as you immediately have to [...]
This is the third book in the series that me and my wife have gone through. The book wasn't conducive to map-making, which is my favorite part of these books, except for a small section in a mine. Also, near the end there's a lizard man riding a dinosaur who is very hard to beat - harder than the Lizard King himself, in fact - and there's no way around him. Those are the bad things though, and the rest of the book is pretty good. Some parts were quite funny, like the Pouch of Unlimited Contents [...]
If the truth is to be known, these books are fun at first. Sadly, however, they quickly grow old.If you have experienced one of these kinds of books you have experienced them all. Whilst the stories differ, the effect they have upon a person is the same across the board. You have fun for a while and then they are put aside. It is okay to pick up one or two throughout your life but I would not recommend going out of your way to buy them en masse. As for which one(s) you pick up… well, that is a [...]
David Icke's favourite 80s gamebookHas you running in circles like a lame chookLooking for the Gonchong-riddled Lizard King(you know I'm not referring to Jim Morrison)To avenge the bitter death of mighty Mungo.Not the best FF, but it's still fun, though.
Death by multi-headed hydra! (And giant crab, but I cheated for that part.)
A solid entry in the series. As with all the early Ian Livingstone books, it has a well realised and evocative setting. This time it's a tropical, volcanic island, where slaves toil in the gold mines under the lashes of lizardman guards. Beaches, jungle, swampland, mines, volcanic slopes and an old fortress prison it all keeps the atmosphere tight and the story ticking along.As a nipper, I never managed to get very far into this book at all. It contains a lot of combat and even the early encoun [...]
I read a bunch of these Fighting Fantasy books when I was younger, and decided to pick one out of my collection to play through.While one of the shorter books, this is definitely not one of the easier ones in the series. It contains some very difficult monsters, and a fair few of them one after the other I know a big part of these types of books are based on luck, but this one REALLY weighs on luck. So many strong battles and punishing events.The story itself is an enjoyable one. It's probably o [...]
It's strange as Island of the Lizard King never seems to get mentioned among the better FF books but I found it to be extremely enjoyable. It has similarities to Forest of Doom in that you are searching an area looking for something, or in this case someone. I enjoyed the mines and pulling together a little army to take on the Lizard King. It was also a nice touch to be able to pick up an item which severely diminished the bosses skills once you got to him.I found this entry in the series to be [...]
Read this many, many times as a kid.
I remember this book from years ago, although I’m not sure that I ever read it. I remembered the cover more than anything I think. This was more in the swords and sorcery type format, which I enjoy more with these books.This one felt a little short, but I think I inadvertently took the short route to get to the end after the usual pitfalls and deaths along the way.I didn’t enjoy the story quite as much as the Forest of Doom, but still a fun read.
Jouer avec ce livre, fût pour moi un véritable petit plaisir. Ces livres m'ont beaucoup plut pendant mon adolescence et bien qu'il soit un peu simpliste, ils demeurent un passe-temps intéressant. Dans ce livre en particulier, nous aidons les habitants d'un village où vit un ami. En effet, les jeunes se font enlever et emporter sur l'Île du roi lézard pour travailler dans le mines. Après avoir atteint l'île, il faut l'explorer, libérer les esclaves et ensuite affronter le roi lézard et [...]
Take down a penal colony turned pirate base18 June 2012 In a way this book could be a part of a trilogy, or even a series, in which the main character travels from adventure to adventure. In the background of this book there was a suggestion that it followed on from Deathtrap Dungeon in that you travelled from Fang to Oyster Bay for a bit of rest and relaxation. However in Deathtrap Dungeon, there was no hint that you had just completed City of Thieves, and in City of Thieves there was no hint t [...]
It doesn't feel right to rate this one as it's not so much a book as a game, and I can't bring myself to rate a "book" that has no substance because of its nature. It wouldn't be fair to Island of the Lizard King or any other books I've rated to compare them really.I think I'd read this sort of a choose your own adventure type of book in my childhood, probably a Famous Five book, and that's all the experience I'd had before. I'm also not exactly the right target group here I think, not being a n [...]
