Okie doker, let’s see if I can find this game..
It’s a flash game, and it’s a turn-based strategy game. You move your soldiers around to different areas and then have them shoot at stuff. It’s 3D but the camera angle is the same in each mission. The setting is post-apoc themed but many of the maps have trees and grass and stuff. There were nearly always two teams in each mission. The people you play as (the “good” guys) were your basic soldier, each one was automatically equipped with an assault rifle and pistol. The “bad” guys were either these “rebel” soldiers who could be equipped with any number of weapons, or aliens! And the aliens had pretty crazy weapons. Now I don’t recall if you could pick up weaponry, I believe that you couldn’t, but I remember that as the game progressed you could research and purchase alien weapons as well as better human ones. There wasn’t any real plot, the player has to save humanity by commanding these soldiers, yaddayaddayadda, you get the idea, but the first couple of levels weren’t about fighting off aliens, they were focused on killing the rebel soldiers in their forts or bases or wherever they might be. But as the levels progressed and around level 2 or 3 aliens attacked a soldier airport and you had to kill all the aliens that were there, and from that point it was just killing everywhere. I also know that the aliens had a gun that shot little plasma bubbles or something, but they were distinctly bubble like. The terrain was also rather destructible, allowing you to shoot at and then through walls to hit your targets. Most levels had fog of war/range of vision as well. I also remember one mission being that you have to enter an alien mothership, grab a control chip or something, and then leave. Lots of the later missions involved directly combating the aliens. I’d love some help because I’d like to beat the game for old time’s sake. Thanks!
Sounds like a warhammer 40k to me :P
