Doomtrooper, also known as Doom Trooper, is an out-of-print collectible card game designed by Bryan Winter and was released in January 1995.[1] It was originally published by Target Games and Heartbreaker Hobbies.[2] It is based on concepts from the Mutant Chronicles franchise.[3] Players use warriors to attack and gain either Promotion Points or Destiny Points. Promotion points can be used to win; Destiny Points are used to purchase more warriors and equipment. There are 13 different card types and over 1100 different cards available.

The game was later migrated to a digital version that was successfully funded on Kickstarter.[4][5]
