Two dice, a pencil and an eraser are all you need. 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 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:


Character Sheet

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.


Combat Screen

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.

Great App with Traditional Gamebooks

Just checked it out and bought the app! I have been piecing together little solutions with Excel for awhile. I’ve even used several apps at once - Notepad, Dice Rollers, Calculator. But it’s always too cumbersome when I’m trying to hold the book too - This is a great app! Thank you!!

My only suggestion - Add the ability to Save Characters. Allow players to have multiple characters at once. I often jump between gamebooks, but want to continue right where I left off later on.

Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. Gamebook Companion v4 is in the works with the ability to save multiple books.

Fighting Fantasy companion

This app is like a glove to the fighting fantasy game books!!! It helps keep up with your stats as you read/play. My only complaint is there should be additional monster counters for when you have to battle multiple monsters at once. I'm hoping there will be an update soon that will include this little nugget. Otherwise I would have given it a 5 star rating. For a buck I highly recommend it if you are a beginner to the Fighting Fantasy world. User friendly and easy to use!!!!

Additional monster counters now added in version 3.0! :)

Love it

Have a massive collection of FF game books. This goes perfect with them! Love how it saves your info even after you close the app! Forget Xbox and PlayStation. Fighting Fantasy is the OG!
