Hello everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a space themed pulpy adventure game along the lines of Invasion from Outer Space: The Martian Game but with less circus and more rocket ships!

I am not bothered by resource collecting, trading etc. in the ilk of Merchant of Venus but I am willing to give most games a try!

Thanks a lot.

I am not sure if Pulpy would describe it, but Galaxy Trucker might be worth a look.

That is almost exactly what I am looking for! Any ideas?

Hmm, it's not Flash (but it is Buck!) and it's definitely been in the wine cellar for a while, but Buck Rogers: Battle for the 25th Century Game might be worth a look. And there are several used copies available thru the Geek right now.

That said, it's closer to [insert favorite "Axis & Allies type of dudes on a map" title here]-in-space than it is to a Fortune-and-Glory-style adventure game.

You can, however, slingshot the sun to land a squadron of troopers on your opponents' meteor colonies and annihilate them...if you can get passed their genetically modified human cyborgs ("gennies").

Thanks for these replies! Looks like a good number of games to investigate.
