Review of 'Rebelstar'

Rating:5 User: jdanddiet

Rebelstar was Julian Gollop's semi-sequel to Rebelstar Raiders, a turn-based tactical game from Red Shift. Rebelstar smooths out the rough edges of the previous game and in the process Gollop created one of the finest experiences on the Speccy.

Playing either the Raiders or the Operatives, the mission is simple: get inside the lunar base and destroy the main computer. Lacking the complexity of Laser Squad, Rebelstar doesn't have any hidden movement, animation or automatic opportunity fire, but it was still a great way to waste an afternoon, especially if you utilised the nifty 2-player option.

A classic.
