Battle Squadron is a classic arcade style shooter for 1 or 2 players, and a spiritual successor to Hybris. You take a space ship and fly it over a high tech hostile surface, and then into an organic setting. .

You can control the number of 'credits' you have from 1 to 3. You choose how many lives you get. You also get to choose the max number of enemy bullets and their speed.

You get powerups along the way that modify your weapons, and also the "Nova Smart Bomb".

Amiga Computing review

Amiga Computing gave Battle Squadron a whopping 109% (!) in their review, with both the graphics and gameplay scores going off the scale.

Atari ST conversion

Although The One reported the conversion of Battle Squadron on the ST is in production and should be released in autumn 1990, this version was never released.


The non-playable demo of the Amiga version contains an intro sequence that is animated and colorful when compared to the same but non-animated and black and white intro sequence in the game. Apparently there wasn't enough disk space for a full quality intro so they cut it down. The same cut-down intro is used in the Genesis version too.
