The story begins during the time before the events of the film with the player controlling a rookie soldier for the Mobile Infantry assigned to the K-12 squad on a mission to protect humanity from the Arachnid forces.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The initial release saw negative reviews from at least two sources, including Chris Reed of SlideToPlay.com[1], and Torbjorn Kamblad of TouchGen.net.[2] The writers cite poor graphics and animations, unresponsive controls, and repetitive, difficult gameplay as reasons for their negative reviews.

Trevor Sheridan of AppleNApps.com gave a  more positive review, generally praising the graphics and gameplay. He did, however, also note that gameplay becomes repetitive, and the lack of checkpoint saving.[3]

All three of these reviews note gameplay similarities between Starship Troopers: Invasion "Mobile Infantry" and two other iOS games, Temple Run, and Epoch.

Updates[edit | edit source]

Spectre Media called for fan feedback following the game's initial release, resulting in updates (v1.1, v1.2) which address some of the early criticism of the gameplay.
