Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Complete

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is an award-winning text-based adventure RPG set in a dark medieval fantasy world based on Joe Dever’s “Lone Wolf” gamebook series.

The game has us investigate an enemy attack on a small mining village as a skillful warrior through a gameplay that is split into two phases. The first phase has us read an interactive non-linear book page by page and occasionally make important choices that define how the story unfolds. Some choices require us to play minigames where success highly depends on our stats and abilities. There is also a map that lets us navigate to specific sections of the book, and shops and forges where we can manage our equipment.

The second phase begins when we encounter an enemy, which launches us into a 3D environment where we have a limited time frame to attack and activate items or magic abilities using mana and stamina. When time runs out, the enemies start their move, and we must defend or evade their attacks. Since each action requires us to tap or swipe the screen at just the right moment, these battles become a test of precision and reflexes.

The game’s captivating story delivers hours of interesting gameplay that never gets boring due to the constant switching between reading and action segments. In addition, the various random events and many ways to develop our character lead to a range of different endings, which adds a high level of replayability.

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is a $7.99 premium game with no additional iAPs. It is one of those rare masterpieces that demonstrate how great mobile gaming can be if done right, making it an easy recommendation for anyone fond of high-quality story-driven games.
