This is at its base a pretty fun game - it plays pretty smoothly, especially once you get the knack of jump boosting, the weapons give you a good range of tactical/playstyle preference options, while not perfectly balanced they are all viable options with benefits and weaknesses. The game modes cover all the basics - Capture the Flag, base defense, team death match, free for all, but there is nothing really innovative here.

The arenas are graphically fairly diverse, but probably most of them are a bit too similar tactically, while others are a bad idea if you plan on having bots due to the limited routes and the poor AI pathing - if set to low levels you should be able beat up on the AI with its slow reactions and poor aim, if set hard the bots are pretty challenging as long as they don't get stuck on scenery, or failing to find a route to the target when playing CTF or base defense.

Generally I wouldn't buy this to play against the AI, and decent random online games are rare nowadays, but if a group of friends wanted a fun lightweight action game to play against each other regularly, this would be a decent option.

The game is pretty basic and generic, but it feels like a nice 16 bits era game ; it is worth it if you are into Smash Brothers kind of games and if you make sure you will have friends to play it with. Do get a bundle.

This game is tedious and the community is non-existent. A good majority of the achievement descriptions are wrong as well. I feel like the people who designed the achievements in this game didn't really think anything through.

Tedious Trooper.
1/5
I will never play this game again.

8/10. This game is pretty much awesome. BUT you need to have friends to play with. AND . . . and this is a big AND . . . you need to get some sort of VPN app like Evolve (it's free) to be able to play over the internet. Otherwise, you're likely to experience issues connecting to someone hosting the game.

When I first got this game, I only played it for like 10 mins against bots then spent like an hour trying to figure out how to get a multiplayer game going with my friends. We eventually gave up and the game sat untouched for a year. Then we discovered Evolve and tried Booster Trooper with it. And it finally WORKED! It was like finding a key to a golden chest and inside was this awesome multiplayer game!

Heyyo, a neat little sidescroller jetpack-based multiplayer shooter. It's pretty fun to play with bots since there's not a lot of players.

Booster Trooper is best described as a side scrolling shooter. It features both single-player (versus bots) and online multi-player. It has 23 maps, 11 weapons, and 4 game modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, and Destroy The Beacon.

Unfortunately the best part of it was the multi-player which has long since died. It has 260 achievements, but it is a very long and mindnumbing grind whether you idle or not. Some of the achievements don't even unlock properly or have correct descriptions!

5/10

I found this game frustrating and not very stimulating. If you are a big fan of smash bros. and the like, you might really like this game.

Bought this for a Funtime weekend with Friends as a 4-pack. Totaly waste of Money, to set up a dedicated server for this game alone is a Hard piece of work. I dont know much about those stuff and the "Help.pdf" didnt helped me at all.

Even besides the dead Multiplayer, this game offers not much. Gun balancing isnt there. Only good is the controls, they work direct and accurate.

Still a waste of 3,74€.

Booster Trooper is in the vein of games likes SpeedRunners or The Showdown Effect in that it's a side-scrolling, multiplayer versus game. But where some games have a fun gimmick like the race of SpeedRunners or have a more finely tuned combat system and shiny graphics like The Showdown Effect, Booster Trooper has neither of those things.

It's an FPS in side-scrolling form, which admittedly can be a lot of fun. However the graphics are good but not great, and the gameplay is smooth but unremarkable. It's not a poorly made game just nothing really stands out about it. Couple that with virtually no one playing it anymore, and you can see why it really isn't worth adding to your game library.
