Rogue Trooper video games
Three computer game versions of Rogue Trooper have been made.
8-bit Computer Game (1986)
The game consists of killing Norts whilst searching Nu-Earth for 8 vid-tapes containing evidence of the Traitor General's involvement in the Quartz Zone Massacre, where all of the G.I.s barring Rogue were slaughtered. On finding all 8 tapes, Rogue has to return to the Souther base of Milli-Com to prove the General's treachery and the extenuating circumstances of his going AWOL. During the game, as well as the vid-tapes, players could also pick up medi-kits to regain health and ammo boxes to feed Gunnar.
Several aspects of the comic were included in the game, such as Nort pillboxes (visually based to some degree on hardened field defences used by the British in World War II), a Quartz-like 'Glass Zone' and most notably the personalities of the bio-chips, which would announce the presence of enemy soldiers, give health and ammo status reports and make sarcastic and derogatory remarks at the Norts and to Rogue himself.
16-bit Computer Game (1990)
Console and PC game (2006)
A third-person action-adventure game (again incorporating first-person vehicle and weapons levels) made by Rebellion Developments and published by Eidos was released on 23 May 2006 for PC, PS2 and Xbox. It used several story and plot elements from the original comic. This was the second game Rebellion Developments has produced based on characters from the pages of 2000 AD; the first being the Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs. Death first-person shooter of 2003.
