For those who didn't know about Gamebooks, they were novels which had a nice success during the 80's, and which were allowing the readers to choose their own path by jumping from one numbered section to another, in a fun and interactive way. They were introducing the concepts of inventory, enemies fights, random dice results, and other nice ideas which were the precursors of what we find today in role playing video games.

The philosophy behind the port of the Lone Wolf books to the DS is to let the console handle all the rules related to combats, stats and so on, so the player can be really immersed in the story and doesn't need to bother with the gameplay elements.

For now, only the first volume of the series, called "Flight From The Dark", is available. If people show enough interest in this first book, other volumes will be ported too. So if you find a bug, have a suggestion, or simply want to contact me, please feel free to write to lonewolfds(AT)free.fr

****, just tested my first download. Can't see a thing on the main menu, or the CONTROLS page (It appears I have pushed NEW GAME). I could still view the map there, but the NEXT button was inactive. Other pages, such as HELP and LOAD GAME (background?), work pretty well. I'm using a NDS Lite with a "Mini SD Supercard" (copied the file into 2 sub-folders). Meh, I think I'll just give it a re-download and see how it works.

This looks very cool. I remember reading choose your own adventure type stories as a kid. I just wish I had a DS so I could play it :( Maybe if an emulator works I can play it on that.

Wow, I was pretty shocked when I heard about this game. I always think I'm the only one who still remembers the Lone Wolf books. I was a huge fan of them back in the early 90's, (I don't think they were available in North America before then) so much so that I decided to make Lone Wolf my internet handle. (Which as you can see, I still use to this day.) I only learned just recently that they started rereleasing the books last summer which I'm also excited about. If anyone has tried this yet on a DS emulator, please let us know if it worked.
