If you don't know what a gamebook is then boy-oh-boy have you been missing out.
Back in the dark days of gaming, when people still read words on dead trees, the concept of interacting with a narrative - one, say, featuring heroic adventurers and daring deeds - was pretty new.
Gamebooks were the closest thing to a one player Dungeons & Dragons game, and were a lifesaver for many a young gamer on a boring car journey / school lesson / family occasion.
Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone came up with the idea, and their work is still the best example of the format, which is probably partly why Tin Man Games has been bringing the oeuvre to iOS.
Appointment with F.E.A.R. is the latest gamebook to get the digital makeover treatment, and it's shaping up to be an especially interesting release.
This one is set in the modern era, is all about superheroes, and has been redesigned by Tin Man Games to feature a comic book aesthetic and a much more approachable feel.
