Swarm Queen

Author Comments

Swarm Queen is a challenging single-player strategy game about hideous insectoid aliens trying to murder each other.

Spawn an army of minions to tear apart your rivals. Each minion controls itself with its own AI, so your strategy will focus on creating your swarm, mutating your eggs, and spitting some toxic goop on the battlefield.

I've been working on this game for a few years, and been away from Newgrounds for even longer. This is my first "full" game, and I decided to make all of the levels available in this free web version. The premium version on Steam has a few extra features, such as full-screen mode, if you want to support the dev (me) :3

UPDATE: You can now upgrade your Swarm Queen by spending the stars you get from completing levels!

I really enjoyed this game. It is like a mini-RTS. I've seen a lot of variations of this style - the only lane combat with gatherers working on the side. But I still had fun, I liked the dialog and that the levels didn't take terribly long.

I am grateful that they *** the curse words, I didn't think that word choice was necessary at all though. I got to level 6 before I started getting bored with it; however, I will probably come back later on to play it some more. Keep up the good work.



sometimes you can oneshot enemies and sometimes they oneshot your guys so basically you can just insta lose for no reason what a terrible mechanic



Very good, very funny, very compelling :)

Unfortunately, I have to deduct a few stars, .5 because of some minor glitches in the challenge levels (such as the Wormy bloke not changing sides when a nuke goes off, or at the speed level if it gets over-rendered, the queen no longer takes damage)

1 star taken off because my computer glitched and shut down in the middle of a level, and when I came back, my save file was no longer there.



Wait a second.. I just beat the game.. THERE WERE UPGRADES????



Cool, but why 8 bucks for this on steam?
The art style is unique but will not instantly click with a mass audience, and especially 4x the price point of similar mobile games. I am doing my full length story driven game for under 5 bucks.. it is a good strategy because it really makes the game available to more people
