This series was designed to cash in on various licenses to create gamebooks based on familiar properties. The main series started things off with several Indiana Jones adventures, and as time went by, it also added James Bond books and spawned a variety of spin-offs. The series' two Morgan Swift adventures are something of an oddity, though, being based on an obscure character who seems only to have appeared outside of these gamebooks in a handful of young adult novels; their inclusion seems to have been intended to lure more female readers to the series. In any case, the books themselves are fairly straightforward gamebooks which occasionally introduce elements of randomness by asking the reader to guess a number or turn the page based on the current day of the week. A handful of the Indiana Jones adventures were reprinted in 1994 with new covers by uncredited artists.
