Top 5 Gamebooks on Android

Best ways to Choose Your Own Adventure on Android

There's been a definite resurgence of interest in classic gamebooks on Android in recent times. If you don't know what we mean by "gamebooks", think of those Choose Your Own Adventure books that were popular back when kids used to read.

Of course, with the introduction of smart devices and their touchscreens and their multi-core processors, the gamebooks of today are far flashier and more interactive than the humble paper examples of old.

There's a ridiculous range of high-quality digital gamebooks on offer on the Google Play Store nowadays, all seemingly from the prolific Tin Man Games. Consider our Top 5 gamebooks on Android for starters.

If you want to uncover a whole world of immersive storytelling, move to the next paragraph...

Trial of the Clone contains a hefty dose of humour and is full of all kinds of geek cred (you can have it read to you by Wil Wheaton). It's less 'gamey' than some of the other entries on this list, but Trial of the Clone arguably boasts the freshest story.

Speaking of sci-fi, Tin Man Games is back again with Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106. Besides supplying readers / players with a strong story, the company has translated the violent world of 2000 AD's tough future cop extremely well, thanks in no small part to a surprisingly visceral turn-based combat system.
