Interesting simple game. It focuses on space, but with little work it can be used for any futuristic genre. Soon As get the money to spare I'm purchasing the art version. The game is based around the simple game mechanic found in orginal fantasy games from the mid 70s (OD&D). It also seems to have some Star Frontiers added for flavor. I highly recomend it to fans of space exploration.

The product is interesting, a space-opera game built on the foundations of D&D. The mechanics look simple, and the game seems complete enough to enable the GM to run a decent campaign.
I will note that there are quite a few typos, for example:
- on page 6 Table 2, the Base Hit Bonus is referred to as BTB for Soldiers.
- on page 7, Table 4, Specialist column: the entry "1 hit" I suppose refers to "+1 attack" like the following entries, but it's not clear.
- on page 8, Table 5, "Slight of hand" (should be Sleight of hand)
- on page 24, creature stats define a THB. Why introduce a different stat when the Base Hit Bonus has already been defined?

These are the typos I spotted on a cursory read, so it's possible there might be more.

I would give 4 stars for the products, but 2 for editing, so on average 3.

Hey thanks, Antonio! six months of work and four editors and we never checked the spelling in the tables! You live and you learn. I have corrected the file and will upload it very soon. The print version is already corrected. Thanks again. :)

This is Swords & Wizardry in space. ...the pulp scifi counterpart to Mutant Future, but better because of ascending Armor Class.
