Classic Game of the Month Review: Starship Troopers
Date: May 1, 2001
In Star Troopers, you assume the role of a young trooper for the Interstellar Union for Senient Races (IUSR). This union, consisting of a couple of races, has recently gone into war with the race of Truk'l. Your task is to investigate what to Truk'l are up too, and to unmask the Truk'l spies that are said to be in the council of the IUSR. This provides a nice search through a couple of planets, during which you get to learn more of the customs, history and the people of these worlds.
Star Troopers is game which was released in a time when the science fiction ZZT game genre was at its peak - back then the famous Chrono Wars saga was also started! Being made by a ZZTer who is not really remembered anymore by most ZZTers (And that's a shame), it proves to be a quite enjoyable adventure game. Nice graphics, nice gameplay, just a cool game which will occupy you for some time!
