New screens for the DS adventure title Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain have popped up over on CVG.

“Around the same time, Steve & Ian had just published the 25th anniversary edition of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain so the choice to base the game on that book was obvious.”
iPhone and iPod Touch are also expected to get versions based on the books later this year.
The DS version is expected to be released just in time for the holidays.
