Laser Squad

In Laser Squad you control a group of space marine-like soldiers (and the occasional cyborg). Before taking them into battle (viewed from above and progressing in turns), you must buy them weapons and armour with a predetermined amount of credits, taking into account the individual abilities of your squad. Unlike X-COM, the soldiers do not gain experience over time.
The game also features a two player hotseat multiplayer option.

Initial ZX Spectrum release (and C64 & Amstrad CPC cassette tape releases) had three missions:

  • 1: The Assassins – where you must face down Sterner Regnix and his guards
  • 2: Moonbase Assault – which challenges you to destroy the OmniCorp database
  • 3: Rescue from the Mines – eschew violence in favour of a rescue mission

Two more scenarios were available via mail order, later releases by Blade Software and subsequent ports already included them:

  • 4: The Cyber Hordes – defend a rebel station and its seven stabilizer cores from an advancing imperial droid invasion
  • 5: Paradise Valley – following the destruction of the stabilizer cores, escape from the colony with the device containing blueprints for advanced rebel starfighter

Two additional missions were released with mail order expansion kit.
