Name that incredibly obscure UK SF puzzle book.
Ok, this has been driving me mental for a few days now. Ater Fighting Fantasy released the Tasks of Tantalon and the Casket of Souls puzzle books way back when there were some inevitable knock offs. One of them was an Indiana Jones affair with diary fragments on double page illustrations of pulp adventure scenes. You solved some puzzles and traced some of the fragments and it made a mask or something.
The other, much better one, was an SF themed book with maybe twelve double page illustrations by someone whose stuff looked very much like Peter Andrew Jones or Chris Achilleos, but probably wasn't them because several days of googling those guys turned up jack shit. Anyway, the story was a magnificent seven type deal in space and gradually your party of daring spaceship pilots was whittled down to just you, and on the last page you were faced with a picture of a bunch of towers and the puzzles on each double page preceding told you which tower the bad guy was in. The puzzles were a number code that related to a colour key that ran round the outside of each double page picture spread, and when you solved the puzzles and applied the answers to the color key and then coloured in a grid accordingly it drew a picture of the tower. The art was gorgeous, but I'm fucked if I can remember what it was called or find any evidence of it on the interwebs.
What was it called? Please help. My sanity is at risk here.
