Fancy some bedtime reading? There’s an app for that. Apple’s free app of the week is Lifeline: Whiteout, a kind of choose-your-own adventure game in app-form. Here’s the blurb:

“Alone in a frozen wasteland with no memory of how he got there, a lost adventurer’s only hope is his last line of communication – to YOU! Guide him to safety and help him find his identity in this gripping story of survival. Your choices shape the story as you play!

3 Minute Games has partnered with Eipix Entertainment for the next installment of the critically-acclaimed Lifeline series. Lifeline: Whiteout introduces a brand new character, V. Adams! Play on the go with real-time notifications sent to your device or check in with V. Adams throughout your day – waiting for the bus, eating lunch, before bed!

Decisions can have a profound effect. Finish the game and then play again to discover a whole new story when you make different choices.”

The Lifeline games have been running for awhile now, and they’re great. You don’t have to be a big iPhone game player to enjoy them, as it’s all in the expertly written narrative.
