You have a choice: join a crew of space pirates to steal priceless slime from a nest of mushroom-like aliens--or hoodwink the pirates and team up with the mushroom colony to prevent an interstellar war!

"Reckless Space Pirates" is a thrilling interactive science-fiction novel where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Will you survive the infamous space-slime pits? Will you earn the respect of the crew, or even start a romance with a space pirate? Can you negotiate with the fungoid aliens, despite linguistic and cultural barriers? Or will you blast their rubbery guts, plunder the slime pits, and retire in luxury?

Doesn't Hold up to the rest of the Choice of Games franchise

The author pushes two black and white sides, and there is little to no subtlety to the plot. Certain points are VERY forced, namely the Medusi. Only 1-2 stats matter, with persuasion being more important than hacking. Multiple grammatical and spelling errors, and a very noticeable bug on your stats around the time you arrive in the planet.

I would not recommend this game for 3 dollars, buy Both the Hero's Rise games if you want a more interesting story, better charactors, choices, and about 4x the playime.

Loved it. A lot more actual problem solving in this than the other stories in this series. Great work!

A wonderful experience

Though it is a rather short read, it is truly one of the best novels I have ever read, let alone participated in. It was consistently engaging, and the choices were difficult and challenging, not to mention the mental puzzles. In my opinion, it is well worth the three bucks you'd pay, despite the decieving length.
