For the last several years, Big Blue Bubble has been releasing iOS versions of classic Fighting Fantasy gamebooks. However, with the license being transferred to Tin Man Games, known for their Gamebook Adventures series and the recent Judge Dredd gamebook release, this means that it is unfortunately time to say goodbye to Big Blue Bubble’s Fighting Fantasy apps.
The 5 apps being pulled from the App Store on August 14th are The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Deathtrap Dungeon, Citadel of Chaos, City of Thieves, and Creature of Havoc.
Those who missed out on some of the titles of the series, or want to check them out for the first time need to hurry. However, buyer beware: with the apps being pulled, support to fix bugs that may pop up in future iOS versions will be unfixable with the apps being pulled. They may not also support future iOS devices at all, with no recourse for the user. While Tin Man Games is an experienced gamebook developer, and business interests from one or more parties may have caused this situation (for what it’s worth, Tin Man’s Twitter account retweeted a tweet about the last call for BBB’s games), it is somewhat disappointing for fans of these gamebooks to see them go away.

Burn the Rope’s puzzle intensity is spreading like wildfire! Burn the Rope has a new Puzzle of the Day feature in the 1.3 update that is now available. Every day that you load up Burn the Rope, you can access a list of the last 7 puzzles of the day, and you can play them all. There’s a name of each level’s designer in the list of puzzles, and this inclusion is for a special reason – all the puzzles of the day are designed by users. Big Blue Bubble is running a contest (currently for US residents only) where users can submit a puzzle for inclusion as puzzle of the day. If you want to submit a puzzle to Big Blue Bubble for inclusion in the game, visit the Burn the Rope contest page, read their submission guidelines, make an image of a level, and submit it in PNG, JPG, or BMP format. Winners not only get their puzzle in the game, but they also get a free t-shirt for their creativity. This free update is available right now.
Burn the Rope Lite also has the Puzzle of the Day feature, available for free. This ad-supported version of the game comes with a unique feature, usually limited to freemium games – by following up offers to install apps of both free and paid variety, it is theoretically possible to unlock every single level from the full version of Burn the Rope in Burn the Rope Lite. As well as the updates to the iPhone/iPod touch apps, Burn the Rope is now available on the iPad as well – Burn the Rope HD features an option to use the same tilt control scheme as the iPhone/iPod touch version, as well as a new control scheme that allows you to rotate the rope using your finger. However, the Puzzle of the Day feature is not in the iPad version yet, but it hopefully will be soon. Otherwise, it is feature identical with the iPhone/iPod touch version, and is available now.
