Description

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is a video game adaptation of the long-running gamebook series starring Lone Wolf, the last of the Kai Lords. Rather than being based on one of the existing books, the game tells a whole new chapter in the life of Lone Wolf, written in collaboration with series' creator Joe Dever.

The game takes place in the fantasy world of Magnamund, three years after the destruction of the Kai order at the hands of the Darklords (as told in the very first Lone Wolf gamebook, Flight from the Dark). The only survivor of the battle, Lone Wolf now travels the kingdom of Sommerlund to fight the forces of evil. As the game begins, the player, as Lone Wolf, arrives to the remote mining town of Rockstarn and finds the town under attack from the Darklords' minions. It is now up to the player to fend off the invading armies of monsters, save the villagers and discover if the attack against Rockstarn is part of a bigger, nastier scheme.

The game is essentially a "video gamebook", with some light RPG elements and inventory management. At key points in the story, the player can choose between several skills to deal with the situation, leading to branching paths. When Lone Wolf encounters enemies, the game switches to a 3D battle sequence, the combat system mixing together active time battle mechanics (hybrid of turn-based and real-time made famous by the Final Fantasy game series) and quick time events. While the narrative sequences can be played with the device held horizontally or vertically, battles require the device to be held horizontally.

The story is told in episodic form, each new chapters needing to be purchased through an in-game shop.
