Pixel raiders: Space fortress by Bu Bajo and Hex

cover image

Ill. by Chris Kennett. Pixel Raiders book 4. Scholastic Australia, 2018. ISBN 9781760275686
(Age: 8+) Recommended. Read book 1, 2 and 3 before number 4. They have ten challenges to complete each section. Each book has a different section. Pixel raiders: Space fortress is a book that the main characters have to complete challenges to survive, and they battle all types of aliens. The main characters are Rip and Mei. They have to defeat megalave so they can go home to the real world. They start in a space ship, then they have to use the ship in some parts of the books. The ship's called the Space Gum and is a cargo ship that has gum as ammo for all the weapons that the ship has. Rip and Mei make a friend that has already been stuck in the game and he remembers what it was like in the real world. Every thousand points they level up.
The book keeps you interested as each objective is different but builds on from the one before.
The illustrations in the book are really cool. I liked the way the top of each page looks like a computer game screen.
I highly recommend this book to readers 8+
