What about these “interactive game books” eg. Tic Tac Toe?

Posted on July 7, 2011

While trying to find out about how one could download games from Amazon I came across “interactive game books”. Curious as to what these were I bought one. It is a free download in the USA, but we have to pay for it elsewhere in the world.

“Tic Tac Toe Kindle Game, 1 & 2 Player” by BluFi Canada.

This is really so bad it hardly counts as a game. I get the feeling that this isn’t an application at all, but a hypertext linked document that goes to the next page based on what you click, i.e. the game will be the same every time as if you click the same blocks it moves to the same pages.

So yes, it is a game of sorts. No, it isn’t worth a download (even as a free download) let alone costing a few Dollars.

I remember as a child having those “choose your own adventure” books. Perhaps something like that would work better in this format. Certainly not any kind of application which really needs to be a fully fledged app and not a hack trying to pretend to be one.
