    Just boring. So apparently the guy who wrote this got all inspired by Warlock of Firetop Mountain (when it was the only FF available) and decided to write his own FF and eventually submitted it to be published. With that in mind, I guess it's not too bad. But really, it's just a dungeon crawl, in many ways similar to WoFM - two separate corridors with side rooms that you duck in and out of; a fairly pointless detour to an alien landscape set out on a 6 by 6 grid and then a final corridor with some Just boring.

The main problem with the book is the lack of story and the worst part is the ending. Defeat the baddie, turn to 400, and.... "Your mission is a success. Congratulations." That's it?

    אני לא יכול להגיד שסיימתי את הספר. אבל בהחלט תפסתי את האיש הרע. למרות ש"סיימתי" את הספר, מדפדוף נראה שפספסתי כמה סצנות מאוד נחמדות(כפרים של חייזרים, קרב טנקים וכנראה עוד כמה דברים). מאוד נחמד להעביר את הזמן ומומלץ למי שאוהב את הסוג ספרים הזה. אני לא יכול להגיד שסיימתי את הספר. אבל בהחלט תפסתי את האיש הרע. למרות ש"סיימתי" את הספר, מדפדוף נראה שפספסתי כמה סצנות מאוד נחמדות(כפרים של חייזרים, קרב טנקים וכנראה עוד כמה דברים). מאוד נחמד להעביר את הזמן ומומלץ למי שאוהב את הסוג ספרים הזה.

This time you are a lone assassin who must sneak aboard a spaceship and assassinate the commander of the ship who happens to be a mad scientist bent on destroying as much of the universe as possible through the use of his biological weapons. From what I gathered, your planet was marked for experimentation, so it is obviously time to deal with this maniac. The gamebook is a little different in that you have armour which slowly degrades as you make your way through the spaceship, and you also get a choice of weapons at the beginning. You can take a melee weapon, a blaster, some grenades, or a gravity bomb. However, a little hint, you can actually pick up some of these weapons (such as a blaster and a gravity bomb) as you begin exploring the ship and thus you can be a little selective in what you chose at the beginning (I believe you can only chose two weapons). In a way this book is like a dungeon crawl, however the dungeon is a giant spaceship (actually it is not that big, but it is big enough to be able to explore). The dungeon though, like the others, tends to go in one direction, and other than a couple of choices, you generally follow along a corridor (or a maintenance tunnel) and visit whatever rooms that are connected to them. Also, unlike some of the other books, you do not necessarily need to collect certain objects to complete the adventure, however some objects make completing the adventure a little easier (or moreso the combat, if you are using the combat system, which I have not). This was actually the first time that I have read this particular adventure, and I must admit that I have found it quite enjoyable, though I suspect it is because I am becoming a little more warmer to the science-fiction genre. Previously I really only read the ones that were set in a fantasy world, and more particularly, the fantasy world of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone (Titan). This time I am intending on giving all of them (or at least all of them that I have) a go.

    This was alright at the start, moving about a space ship with some robot enemies etc. Then I was randomly teleported to a planet with endless grassy plains, empty forests, some aliens, an angry bear in a cave and some white water rafting before fighting a sea monster to somehow end up back on the space ship. Then thrown into some simulation tank combat only to win and fall down a gravity chute towards a monster and potential insta-death, to survive and then try to handle some Indiana Jones style This was alright at the start, moving about a space ship with some robot enemies etc. Then I was randomly teleported to a planet with endless grassy plains, empty forests, some aliens, an angry bear in a cave and some white water rafting before fighting a sea monster to somehow end up back on the space ship.

Too random, too much luck. Not cool....

    I almost gave this gamebook one star. Almost. But then I figured that would be unfair to the illustrator who has done a wonderful job of the artwork. As for the story, it doesn't know whether it's a SF action or a SF comedy and it miserably fails at both. I almost gave this gamebook one star. Almost.

    I've read comments from a lot of people who don't rate 'Space Assassin', and the Fighting Fantasy sci-fi books always tended to be less popular than the fantasy ones. But this is a pretty solid read and held my attention. The exploration of the vast ship belonging to mad scientist Cyrus is a fairly logical progression of labs and security features. There is one section set upon an entire alien planetscape which is contained aboard the ship, miles across, to house his mutant experiments. The path I've read comments from a lot of people who don't rate 'Space Assassin', and the Fighting Fantasy sci-fi books always tended to be less popular than the fantasy ones. But this is a pretty solid read and held my attention. The exploration of the vast ship belonging to mad scientist Cyrus is a fairly logical progression of labs and security features. There is one section set upon an entire alien planetscape which is contained aboard the ship, miles across, to house his mutant experiments. The path forward is never difficult to find, and when there are choices to be made, I found that sufficient clues and hints had been dropped to generally be able to choose wisely. On the down side, it's a little sterile as there's very little interaction to be had with other characters except for fighting them, a couple of the villain's bio experiments in progress being the only exceptions. It has to be said that this is easier than most gamebooks. I completed it first time as a kid and only had a single instant failure section before completing it this time round. But that isn't necessarily any bad thing. The story is carried along through exploration and it's not necessary for every book to be punishingly difficult. This actually came as a sweet relief after playing 'Khare' over the previous couple of days! Not one of the most memorable books, I suspect it won't blaze in my memory like 'City of Thieves' or 'Deathtrap Dungeon'. But it's a pleasant and interesting read in its own right.

    Although I somehow managed to complete this on my first attempt,I found this one average at best!! Like all the Sci_ Fi books do far I have not found one I really like as yet!!
