Cut open vir­tual frogs at your leisure

In 1982, Ian Liv­ing­stone and Steve Jack­son mashed to­gether fan­tasy nov­els and D&d-style role-play­ing. It all came across a bit like early text ad­ven­tures of the day, only in pa­per form, but the books were phe­nom­e­nally pop­u­lar. Now re­born on mo­bile, they’re a cu­ri­ous odd­ity. There’s no five-fin­gered book­mark­ing, nor cheat­ing, nor los­ing dice un­der­neath the sofa. But in a world of Life­line, 80 Days and other slices of por­ta­ble text-ori­en­tated ad­ven­tur­ing, these old books seem more on-trend than they have in decades.
