Fubar - The Game is a top-down, turn-based adventure game. You guide a team of hardcore soldiers on missions to rid the universe of the big, nasty, evil aliens. Sometimes the missions involve killing everything hostile that moves. Sometimes they need you to rescue something valuable. Sometimes you need to blow something up.

If you have seen movies like Aliens or Starship Troopers, this should be very familiar to you. If you haven't, go watch them already.

The Game is written with Java 2, so it works with most major operating systems. It is also free software, with

We're killing aliens here, not people. I'm sure once I saw an alien trying to take over earth or whatever die right in front of me, I'd be more than happy.


As for the game, it's pretty decent and better than I thought. Even for running on Java, it's very nice.

Could you post a spreadsheet of character/ monster/ weapon stats? or even better: a promotion checklist. bty does experience and kills count for promotions? A way to allow promotions inside character creations at the expense of points would be cool too.

I have resisted writing such documents for a long time since I feel they would make it too easy to make the team overtly powerful. However, I can give a few pointers.

There are several attributes that contribute to getting promotions. Leadership, basic military training and morale are among them, but even very high engineering and first aid can grant you a honorary rank of lieutenant.

Promotions are never automatic, though. First, you need to succeed in a mission. Second, you need to have high enough attributes AND up to 15 or so free, unassigned attribute (experience) points available. Finally, the character needs some Luck.

Still play this one once a month or so. It would be cool if there was a new update. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a shot.

I don't know if any more updates are planned but we're holding out hope!

I still enjoy this game and am looking forward to more updates.

I would really like to see some missions with ALOT more enemies as my experienced group is not finding much of a challenge.

Virtu, can a SGT advance to LT? If so, how?

Thanks for the great game!

Sergeants can indeed get promoted to lieutenants. You need at least level 7 in leadership, and ten or more FREE attribute points available, as well as some Luck.

Unfortunately I haven't had much time to work on the game lately, and cannot guess when the next update will be. Of course, adding new missions with more enemies would be relatively easy.

The author here.

Steve Still: You should be able to get the flame thrower when your leader is a captain. However, it is such as expensive weapon you will have to decrease the number of assault rifles in the team.

This issue didn't show up until I added the persistent mission teams because earlier, the soldiers automatically got assigned the best weapon available when you selected them. I will probably add some visual feedback on the available equipment points.

The reason for the weapon limits is balance, obviously. You don't want five guys with heavy weapons running around killing helpless monsters. Another point is that the heavy weapons are HEAVY, and limit the number of action points your soldiers have. Thus you will need higher motivation, training, and leadership to compensate. These attributes, incidentally, also have a large role in getting promotions, although other attributes such as luck matter, too.

Finally, the rules are still being tweaked, so if you really think the progress is too slow, I can increase the amount of experience the soldiers get on a mission. But that would probably need to be balanced by making the enemies somewhat more deadly, too... ;)
