DescriptionA turn-based, tactical squad combat game from Julian Gollop, creator of the X-COM series.
An alien race is threatening the galaxy. It is up to the Rebelstar Raiders to infiltrate the aliens' home base on the planet Thray 6. They have to get in, steal some alien eggs for research purposes, then get out - fast. There is only a limited time until the rescue ship must leave the planet, and the Raiders had better be on board.
Rebelstar II features a dangerous scenario on a hostile world. Slash through jungles, wade through deadly swamps and enter the alien base, where the Queen sits, guarding her eggs.

TriviaThis is the third game in Julian Gollop's Rebelstar series. It was preceded by Rebelstar Raiders (1984) and Rebelstar (1986). On September 7th, 2005, an all-new game, Rebelstar: Tactical Command was released in the U.S., for Game Boy Advance, thus introducing the series to a whole new generation of players.
Many of the characters from Rebelstar make a re-appearance in this game: Captain Krenon, Kurt Levine, Don Caloni, Leon Trotsky, Jim Digriz, Topper Henley and Zeera Camay.
Rebelstar II was obviously influenced by the movie Aliens, and apart from the design of the aliens themselves, it also quite happily includes three familiar troopers: Vasquez, Hudson and Corporal Hicks.
