Choice of the Star Captain
By Choice of Games
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Fight on the front lines of the war between humanity and the hideous Blobs. (Not that anyone has actually seen a Blob up close, but everyone knows they have tentacles. Surely they’re hideous!) Go on stealth missions, run alien blockades, and investigate mysterious planets, "aided" by Lloyd, your insufferably obnoxious shipboard computer.
Choice of the Star Captain is the hilarious interactive science-fiction novel where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, suppose Lloyd has just informed you that your ship will crash land on the jungle moon of Cygnus Delta in 93 seconds. What will you do?
A) Call upon your elite piloting skills to escape the moon’s gravity well.
B) Invite Lloyd to land the ship himself, if he’s so smart.
C) Make the prudent choice, and try landing on the moon’s surface instead of attempting a risky escape.
D) Spend the last 93 seconds of your life gleefully smashing Lloyd’s screen with a torque wrench.
Humanity needs you, Star Captain! Will you defeat the Blobs and come home as a war hero? Will you uncover the secret that sparked the Blob invasion? Will you serve as ambassador and convince the Blobs to spare the human race? The choice is yours.

One of the best
This game was one of Choice of Games's better ones. It begins with adventure and comedy, and ends with adventure, mystery, and comedy. All of these elements are meshed together very well, making an all-around excellent game.
That being said,
The game's plot was rather predictable. Your character is selected for a special reason, the twist at the end I saw coming from the beginning of the game - typical stuff, stereotypes which I thought this game could have been much better off without.
Also, the number of choices which you can make are limited, which makes one feel as if his options are dictated.
But aside from these issues, the game had a plethora of comedy, which - let's face it - makes all games that much better.
In the end, you did have enough flexibility in the game to make it worth playing, and enough fun to make it worth buying. I would recommend buying this app.
One of COG's best
I am a huge fan of cog, and this novel is why. This novel is one of their best and its the reason I but their games. I must say however that my favorite IF is choice of zombies. All their games are funny. This one had the best humor yet! I love Lloyd the computer and arguing with him is fun. The story is engaging and complicated enough to confuse you. This makes the choices feel great because you aren't sure which is right. Buy it now!
I have always loved space and starships and now I get a chance to be a captain of my version own starship. I highly recommend trying out all the various ways of playing, my first round I ended up finding a fun ending from being obstinate! Just reminds me of the many Chose Your Own Adventure books but with way more interesting stories. Dorian has down a great job of writing.
