Hi there,


First post!


Just set up a Raspberry Pi with Retropie and having a lot of fun with it.


A bit of a long shot but I am trying to find a game I had on a CPC6128 back in the day.


It was a sci-fi, 2d turn based squad combat game. Very simple graphics, even for the time. I'm pretty sure it was a "budget" game.


It was based on a off World base, Mars or the Moon, I think.


You could play against the computer or another person.


I played it a lot but can't remember the name.


It wasn't Laser Squad. Much less famous.


Any idea's?

Was it Rebelstar? I think that was a budget game.

Indeed the description does sound like Rebelstar.

Rom download and game up and running!


Unfortunately I can remember the tactics that make it really easy to win against the computer., sort of spoils the fun!

If you haven't already tried it laser squad is a really good game and kind of sequel to Rebelstar, if you like Rebelstar you should love Laser Squad.  It could well be the best CPC game.

Doing a bit of research, it seems that Rebelstar and Laser Squad are part of the lineage that led to Xcom.

I play the modern Xcom games, so will definitely check Laser Squad out.
