DescriptionAfter the contact with a mining colony was lost, a team of specialized space marines is sent to investigate a suspected alien infestation, which means braving a labyrinth of dark corridors of the base.
Mission in Space: The Lost Colony is a sci-fi turn-based tactical squad game. Each trooper has movement points with separate action points used for shooting assault guns, using skills (different for each class), bombs or nano-enhancements. At the cost of 1 movement point they may be put into alert state (overwatch), which allows them to fire back during the enemy turn.
The team must focus on completing the mission goal, as the enemy cannot be eliminated (as in X-Com), because the aliens keep coming continuously (as in Space Hulk) while your ammunition is limited. Some xenomorphs leave behind puddles of harmful acid when killed.
The story consists of 12 missions (first serve as a tutorial). Achievements are available and medals are given based on mission performance (speed & team safety). Experience points are given after a mission, which may be assigned to unlock new skills & weapons (e.g.: a flamethrower) for marines; the player may then retry completed missions for a better score.
