I have tried to find a full page of advertising of the The Warlock of Firetop Mountain Videogame but disappointingly my research ended just with this.
|Fighting Fantasy Software Packs |
full page advertising,
Sinclair User, January 1984, p.16
For some reasons Puffin decided not to dedicate a full page adv only to The Warlock of Firetop Mountain Software Pack and instead they decided to mix the FF's Korth Trilogy with the fantasy one. I personally think that from a marketing and advertising perspective was a really a bad choice especially because the main visual reference only to the Sci Fi Game books. The TWOFM is instead barely noticeable in the bottom right corner.
I still think that the evocative power of the Temple of Terror advertising is difficult to beat and the idea of launching a new fantasy software pack series in this was massive a car crash. However I will try to scan all my resources to see if there is any other press adv around. Submissions are welcome.
