Moon Troopers

Mine resources, fight aliens, and conquer a moon in this exploration tower defense PVP strategy game

Mine resources, fight aliens, win territory, and conquer an alien moon!

You are a Moon Trooper commander, sent by your space faction to mine resources on an unexplored moon in the depths of space.

Players control squads of moon troopers who move across map spaces, revealing them, fighting back aliens, and terraforming the land for resources.

Compete with other players for control of territory and engage combat with trooper squads and turret defense battles. Each game plays out differently with a randomized game map.

Three possible victory conditions encourage variable strategies:

1. Explore - win by controlling 15 map spaces
2. Battle - win by defeating an enemy player in battle
3. Terraform - win by collecting 50 resources through mining


Pieces for each faction:
Trooper (12) – Attack, defend, and capture territory
Mine (3) – Gain resources for the player every turn
Turret (3) – Auto attacks approaching enemies
