Originally released by Red-Shift as Rebelstar Raiders, Firebird bought the game, revamped it and re-released it as Rebelstar before it achieved the success it so richly deserved.

The player takes charge of ten or so raiders in an attempt to destroy the Isaac computer at the heart of Moonbase Delta. Either the computer or a friend can be chosen to play the part of the defenders. The playing system is very easy to use and involves selecting a member of your team who has a certain amount of Action points; these are used up depending upon what you want the character to do. Simply moving your character to the left or right will cost far fewer action points than an aimed shot at a target will, so how you spend each character's action points each turn can become very tricky indeed. A simple game to play but one that is very hard to put down - or win.
