Good Game: Rebelstar Tactical Command (GBA)

A Good Game a day for the rest of time perhaps?

Today it’s Rebelstar: Tactical Command a 2006 a turn-based tactics video game developed by Codo Technologies and published by Namco for the Game Boy Advance (GBA) in 2005. The game was created by Julian Gollop, who has previously designed UFO: Enemy Unknown games and the original Rebelstar games.

Unlike in UFO: Enemy Unknown, there is no base building, resource management or research. During combat, the player controls a squad of single-character units and must accomplish various goals. Units have a certain amount of action points, which are renewed at the beginning of every turn. Each action, from turning to walking to shooting consumes action points. Therefore, they are only allowed to perform a certain amount of actions per turn.

Watch the video I made below showing about the first 21 minutes of the game.
