I recently stumbled upon The Great Tournament when looking for a new time waster (mobile game). It turned out to be a really fun experience! I'd call it a Choose Your Own Adventure book with RPG stats. The writing is tropey (you're a young villager who serendipitously ends up on adventures) and sometimes a bit lazy (a lot of names and places seem to be outright stolen from other books/games), but it was a lot of fun. You start like an RPG, rolling 5 stat points into 6 or so categories, and as you play your actions influence how your stats grow. It looks like a shallow game, but feels like there's a deep game underneath. I enjoyed it enough to pay the $5 for the add free version.

All in all, you can finish this game in a few hours (depending on how fast you read I suppose). I've played through it twice so far, but haven't beat it. I'm going to wait on a third time though, since similar to reading a book, I know basically what's coming next (the choose your own adventure options do eventually bring you to the same plot points, it's just a matter of how you get there and how ready you are).

I definitely recommend picking the game up and checking it out. Here's a link to the Google Play Store version, but I believe it's available pretty much everywhere.

I've also played another game by the same company Swamp Castle, where it's all about managing your corner of the kingdom. It's super hard, but also a lot of fun :)
