Gamebook Companion Screenshots


Two dice, a pencil and an eraser are all you need. Well, NOT ANY MORE!

With the Gamebook Companion you can play all your favourite old school (and new edition) gamebooks on the go with this handy app. Store you Skill, Stamina, Luck and equipment in the easy to use and convenient layout. We've even included the dice!


Stats and Dice screen

On this screen you can set your initial scores for SKILL, STAMINA, LUCK and MAGIC (for gamebooks that requre this statistic).

Character Attributes:
To enter an initial score simply click in the relevant box and type the value. Click anywhere away from the keypad to close it. You can then manually adjust your starting score for each attribute using the + and – symbols. During your adventure the values for your stats will alter so simply use the + and – symbols to adjust as necessary. Don't forget, with most gamebooks these values can never exceed their initial value (hence the separate box for keeping a record).

Monster Battles:
When you encounter a monster stats have been included to allow for a record of the monster's stats. Simply adjust the values the same was as you did for your own personal attributes. As the battle progresses you can adjust the Monster's STAMINA as required by the battle rules.

Two dice have been provided. Clicking on the 'Roll One Dice' button will alter the value shown on the first dice on the left. Clicking on the 'Roll Two Dice' button will do the same for both die.


Equipment screen

On this screen you can store a list of all the items you pick up during your adventure.

Equipment List:
In the boxes provided you can record items. Simply click on a box, type it's name and then press done.

Provisions and Gold:
The value of both of these will alter during your adventure, use the + and – symbols to adjust the value as necessary.


Extra Stats screen

Some gamebooks use additional attributes beyond the typical ones. On this screen you can enter the name and value for these using the same techniques as found on the previous screens.
