First commercial game guide

Post by Rorthron » Fri Dec 22, 2017 1:11 pm

The thread on completing adventures got me thinking about game guides. Was Melbourne House's A Guide to Playing the Hobbit the first standalone commercial game guide? Does anyone know of any earlier ones (not just for the Spectrum)?

The game you mention is from 1984.

In 1982 it was released 'How to Win at Pac Man':
