The good news is that the genre is now available for iOS devices with the release of Reckless Space Pirates. This Sci-Fi novel and game book offers you the chance to become the main protagonist of a space adventure. Choice of Games, the developer of this app, has created not just a good story, but also an entirely new way of allowing you to take part in controlling the outcome of the novel.

Reckless Space Pirates offers two main plots for the novel. You can choose to become a space pirate and plunder the slimy resources of colonized mushroom aliens. Or, you can also choose to become a peacemaker by helping the mushroom colony defeat the pirates to prevent a full-blown space war.

Along these two main plots are different subplots that make the game book much more exciting. For example, the story places you in a situation where you will have to decide whether to shoot the enemy or to hold your fire. Each choice has a unique outcome and sometimes, the consequences of your actions can be fatal to your adventure.

The primary objective of Reckless Space Pirates is to allow you to finish the novel as a victorious hero. If your choices are wrong, then you’ll have to face the negative consequences.
