The iOS games based on Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy choose-your-own-adventure books will be removed from iTunes next week when developer Big Blue Bubble's license to the series expires.

The titles that will be removed from the store on August 14th include: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Citadel of Chaos, Creature of Havoc, City of Thieves, and Deathtrap Dungeon.

Big Blue Bubble said: "The agreement that we made was for a specific amount of time and that time is now lapsed. I am not aware of the apps being picked up or ported by anyone else."

While those particular apps that are being removed from iTunes next week may not have found a new publisher, the Fighting Fantasy series will be kept alive on iTunes by Tin Man Games, who are best known for their Gamebook Adventures interactive stories. The Australian and UK developers at Tin Man Games recently announced that they will be releasing a Gamebook Adventure written by Livingstone later this month, Fighting Fantasy: Blood of the Zombies.
