Space Hulk is a two-player strategy and board game. The game universe is set in Warhammer 40,000, inspired on Alien movies. It comes along with intriguing stories of heroic actions and legendary battles. One player will take the role of a squad of Space Marine Terminator that tries to claim his honor assaulting a space hulk full of tyranid Genestealers. The other will control those Genestealers, an aggressive alien species.
Space Hulk recreates claustrophobic games style in both multiplayer and single player modes. This 3D computer game simulates a tense atmosphere in a mission in which your enemies will slowly come back from hibernation and split-second decisions are essential to achieve the victory. Due to the high amount of dangers, the mission requires the most experienced warriors, who are provided with heavy weapons and protected by armors.
Only few troops can carry out this hard job, that is why sometimes is impossible to overcome the powerful enemy resistance. There is another option that is the total destruction of the Space Hulk. You will make the most of the absorbing and tense missions, especially if you are a nostalgic of board games.
If you choose the single player mode, you will have to command the space marines against the AI Genestealers. However, if you select multiplayer option, one player will take charge of the space marines while the other will look after the bad ETs. Space marines need points to move and turn, engage in combats or fire off weapons. For example, one action point allows performing basic attacks such shooting a bolter; two are required to use guard mode; and four are needed for reloading the powerhouse assault cannon.
This computer game consists of a board made up of various sections which represent rooms and corridors that you will be free to arrange and lock at your will. It has a jigsaw puzzle style. Space Hulk stands out from the rest of games due to its hidden game mechanics, which derives in a tense and challenging gameplay. The Marine player will never know the actual number of Genestealers; and Genestealers will only know the number of ‘command points’ that the Marine has available in each turn just right after the Marine has used them.
