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

Bummer for no left-hand setup ( feels left out :( ). Why no simple wrapper-class approach? Just moving all screen related calculations into a interfaced class and then create an implementation for left and right. Requires not a lot of work just a bit of clever design ;)

Wow, that looks pretty damn cool. I always used to read Gamebooks, and keep track of everything on a piece of paper. Kudos to the creators of this game. :)
