Must get. Own and have played all of the Gamebook Adventure games. Absolutely top-tier production. My kids like them, too.

Which one should I get?

I used to love the fighting fantasy books as a kid but have never played a CYOA game on iOS. I've read that the Gamebook Adventures are rather difficult?

Well, if you'd really like I'd suggest picking up the first or the second one.
An Assassin in Orlandes or Siege of the Necromancer.

Those two happen to have detailed walkthroughs on GameFAQs if you absolutely are stuck.

Personally, I think the difficulty adds to the game. I don't find them unbearably difficult either. Mildly, but there's always the random chance aspect involved too which makes it difficult.

These gamebook apps are so gorgeous and well written, can't recommend them enough really.

I would say to definitely get all 4 that are on sale for $1.99 each if you do not have them already. You can't go wrong at that price.

Congrats on the upcoming release Tin People. I look forward to hearing what this exciting announcement is you keep hinting at. Do I have to wait till GCAP?

And I think I might finally make a start on book 1.
