Choose your own adventure games

I already play Cause of Death, Hysteria Project, and Surviving High School. What other good CYOA games are out there?

Ace Attorney is kinda like Cause of Death with additional courtroom scenes

I downloaded one the other day called "Choice of the Dragon", it was okay. They make a few others that I didn't read, like Choice of the Vampire.

If you like gamebooks, there are a few good ones. I downloaded Fabled Lands the other day, and was extremely happy with it. There's also Gamebook Adventures, and Fighting Fantasy. Check those out.

I really like Alter Ego. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth multiple play-throughs. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/alter-ego/id329703516?mt=8

You can try it for free on the website. http://www.playalterego.com/

I am really looking forward to the new Gamebook Adventures and the iPhone version of Fabled Lands...

Nobody seems to have mentioned Star Breed, which is a great gamebook too.

The Fighting Fantasy gamebooks are terrific too, but they're not nearly as well adapted for iPhone as Gamebook Adventures. The writing and art in the FF series is really top notch though.

I thought about purchasing Choice of the Vampire but if it's as short as Choice of the Dragon it seems like it'd be kind of marginal value compared to some of the other gamebooks available.

The "Choice of" games (broadsides and dragon are both free) are fantastic choose-your-own-adventure purists, and DanFab's ChoiceScript allows for some serious versatility when it comes to adding in variables and remembering things like names etc.

I'm working on my own game with the Script, it's a ton of fun.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

Gamebook Adventures most definitely! It's got an achievement system, great page quality, unlockables and more.

Choice of Broadsides is also another good (free) one but nowhere near as high quality as Gamebook Adventures. It just has a good story.

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!
I do app descriptions for free

The Fighting Fantasy series are good too - similar to the Gamebook Adventure series.
