"You are a clone raised by the mysterious Silene Monks. Once the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, they have long since been superseded by modern technology. Now they spend most of their time hanging out and playing video games.
But you are not like the rest of your clone brothers. You have been chosen for a special destiny. Make the right decisions and you'll complete your training, explore a universe full of adventure, and prove yourself a hero. Make the wrong decisions and you'll be dead. Really dead. Its hard to emphasise just how dead you will be. So here's a pre tip for you: try to make the right decisions."
Written by Zach Weinersmith, creator of the hilarious award-winning comic strip 'Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal'.
You're a clone who sets out to find your place in a cold, uncaring, but also kickass and ridiculous futuristic world, solving challenging puzzles and fighting monsters along the way. It's like D&D for people who are too cool for other people!

Fantastic and funny
The writing in this adventure book is absolutely fantastic, with a mix of base humor and intelligent jokes and references that makes the fun storyline even more enjoyable. This book takes you to choices and places no other adventure book would ever dare. And wil Wheaton voicing it makes it all the more delightful.
Swing and a miss
I really wanted to like this one and as a writer myself I hate to be over the to critical, But this was really bad. I was excited by the graphics which can be hit or miss in gamebooks. The system of combat is a departure from most of the tin man games, Which wasn't bad but you have less control then the dice rolls. Also this is supposed to be a star wars spoof and it isn't even a good one. It's not funny. It's not very entertaining. I don't think I've ever been this critical of an app but I was very disappointed in Tin man games for this book.
