Starship Troopers: Terran Command is a real-time strategy that uses the license of the movie series, known as Starship Troopers. The production was developed by the Artistocrats Studio, known for Order of Battle: World War II.


We start our adventure on the planet Klendathu, which is well known to the fans of the movie. However, quite quickly we find ourselves on the desert world of Kwalash and that's where most of the game takes place. The game puts us in the role of a commander of the titular unit of space soldiers, who are to help local farmers deal with the plague of Arachnids. It is a race of aggressive insectoid aliens.

The timeframe of the game is not entirely known, but the adventure takes place parallel to the third installment of the film, around the disastrous Battle of Roku San.

Game mechanics

Starship Troopers: Terran Command is an RTS aimed at the defensive aspect. During production, the authors were inspired by the popular They Are Billions. However, it should be noted that the game doesn't focus on building the base. For most of the game our task is to move from one point to another and occupy convenient defensive positions and strengthen them, fortifying them to repel incoming Arachnids and eliminating insect nests.

During the game, we command small troops, which are forced to fight against hordes of aliens. There are many types of units with unique weapons and abilities available. To win, however, it is necessary to use the properties of the terrain, especially places that can act as bottlenecks impeding the march of enemy forces. It is also necessary to carefully position defensive structures and equipment. This is especially important because the developers have applied the True Light of Sight and True Line of Fire mechanics, which affect the ability to fire and observe the terrain, at the same time making it easier for the enemies to surprise us if we are not paying attention.

The game offers a dynamic campaign divided into 21 missions where we fight a war for the entire planet and a special training scenario that acts as a tutorial. During the campaign, we unlock increasingly specialized troops, effective against new types of insects. Units accumulate combat experience, through which they gain one of two additional abilities.

In addition, players looking for a respite from the campaign play special missions on two different maps, with unique challenges for each map.
