About This Game

Swarm Queen is a quick-to-learn but tactically-challenging tug-of-war strategy game about insect-like aliens battling over Jupiter's moon, Europa.

Spawn an army of minions that control themselves, leaving you free to focus on the macro-strategy. Which types of creatures will you create? How will you upgrade them? When will you choose to support the fight by spitting globs of Neurotoxin at the enemy horde, or if things get really out of hand, will you unleash the "Bio-Nuke"?

So mutate your eggs, birth your swarm, spit some goop, and watch the battlefield get covered in green blood.

                                    ▂▃▅▆▇ FEATURING ▇▆▅▃▂


Build your army out of 18 different minions, from electricity-shooting shell-covered beasts, to flying bat-like bomb-carriers, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.


Inspired by real-life insects, this is what a war between ant colonies might look like.. in space!


Play through dozens of levels as you unlock new creatures and abilities, including bonus "challenge levels" which put a twist on the normal gameplay. For the ultimate challenge, replay levels on hard mode.


Your minions are usually smart enough to pick the best target, but will they get that last hit? Will the projectile miss? Will the reinforcements arrive in time? As you're strategizing about your next move, make sure to keep an eye on the battle. There are things happening!


Swarm Queen contains a "100% scientifically accurate" depiction of Jupiter's moon Europa, including all of the alien life. No, it's not covered in ice. NASA is lying to you. The Earth is flat. The president is a reptilian. The universe is a hologram. BUY GOLD.

Alternative Description:

Swarm Queen is the story of a single mother trying to raise several (hundred) daughters in a tough neighborhood. (This description is technically correct; the best kind of correct.)



Swarm Queen is a 1-man indie project and first commercial release from Canadian developer Helmi Bastami, formerly a hobbyist animator on Flyborg.net
