What happens when you take a dungeon crawler, a choose-your-own-adventure book, and a board game, roll them into one package, and then polish that package to a shiny mirror sheen?
Well, you get something like Fighting Fantasy Legends Portal. And if you like the sound of all those things being rolled up into one weird sort of sausage, then you’re going to love everything about it.
But while there is a lot to like here, if you’re looking for something with more of an action flavour, you’re definitely better looking somewhere else.
The game is based around three of the classic Fighting Fantasy adventure books – Deathtrap Dungeon, Trial of Champions, and Armies of Death. You pick a hero at the start, set your skill, luck, and stamina points, then set off into the unknown.
