Sci Fi gamebooks?

Anyone got a list? I fell in love playing Trial of the Clones and was wondering if there are other sci fi gamebooks i should download too.

I just downloaded Infinite Universe too.

They're definitely pretty hard to find, I've had a few of the Choice of Games Sci-fi books that play like Gamebooks just generally minus the combat. I'd recommend Choice of the Star Captain and Heroes Rise, but all of their games are pretty good.

If you definitely want to stick to a strict Gamebook style experience then I'd suggest Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 made by Tin Man Games. As far as having a knowledge of Judge Dredd to enjoy that one, it's not necessary at all - I know next to nothing, I haven't even seen the films and still enjoyed it. Pretty decent replayability too

Tin Man Games has the other game book as well, Infinite Universe, which is a pretty good Sci-Fi gamebook as well.

Edit: nevermind, just saw you mentioned it in your first post!

You might want to hack out Star Breed and Blackbar as well!

Thanks Bool... I have Blackbar, but it was one of those i just bought and checked for 10 mins then forgot about, and eventually deleted. Will pick it up again.

I also found games under the publisher name "Hosted Games" and they have a wide range of gamebooks as well. Downloaded Paradox Factor right away... Seemed sci fi enough, and only a buck
