Codex Gamicus

100 Classic Book Collection is an educational handheld console program published by Nintendo and developed by Genius Sonority, which was released exclusively for the Nintendo DS on December 26, 2008. The program includes a hundred public domain works of literature. Despite the title, many of the included works are not novels, but plays.

100 Classic Book Collection features 100 books stored on a Nintendo DS game card. The player is required to hold the DS like a book and is able to adjust the text size. A bookmark feature allows the player to mark their place in a book, as well as resume from that point if the DS is powered off. Several of the works included are Othello by William Shakespeare, Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, and The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Currently, 10 extra books are available to download through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

The software allows a reader to search for books in a number of different ways, such as by genre and length, for example. Players can also access introductions for the books, and read about the authors themselves.[1]
