With the Gamebook Companion you can play all your favourite old school (and new edition) gamebooks on the go with this handy app. Store your SKILL, STAMINA, LUCK and equipment, battle monsters and roll dice in the easy to use and convenient layout.
Swipe left and right to navigate between the following screens:
On this screen you can set your scores for SKILL, STAMINA, LUCK and another seven user defined stats. Click on the icons to change them to one of 18 different choices.
The top five stats can all be 'locked' to an initial value by clicking the lock icon.
'Test your luck' by clicking on the shamrock icon.
Swipe up to roll dice.
Click the options button, top right, to access a 'Clear all' button to reset for a new game.
Equipment / Notes Screen
On this screen you can store a list of all the items / notes you pick up during your adventure. Each item / note has a title and description area.
Your standard stats will automatically carry across to this screen. To battle a monster, enter its SKILL and STAMINA values in one of the monster boxes. When ready click 'Battle!'. If the 'Auto-Battle' toggle is on (top-right) then the dice will roll and 2 points of STAMINA will be deducted from the losing combatant, otherwise you can amend the relevant STAMINA value yourself.
Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Can’t fault this app. Really takes the hard work out of keeping track of your game.

Thanks for your feedback. :)
Brilliant app...I use this to switch between stats and fighting fantasy PDFs...don't need book, dice or pencil.
Shame there's no iPad specific app cos the iPhone style looks poor...retina display doesn't do much for this.
iPad specific app please author... And also please make possibility of loading a PDF into this so I don't have to switch...would be great if you could do that!

Been looking for something like this for a long time and delighted to say it does the job perfectly. Top app indeed.
