"This is a turn-based game for people who don't like turn-based games, and a roguelike shooter for people who hate roguelike shooters." - TouchArcade 4/5

Space Grunts combines fast paced arcade action with turn-based gameplay.

The year 2476, Earth's space-federation has been building moon-bases across the galaxy. One of those moon-bases has been sending a distress signal.

Space Grunts are a group of intergalactic "problem" solvers, sent to investigate..

You play one, out of a team, of Space Grunts, and your mission is simple: find your way into the moon-base, and figure out what has happened. You'll have to fight your way through aliens, robots, security drones and base-systems. Find the lower levels of the moon-base, and get to the core of the problems.


A large collection of consumables can be found all over the moon base from weapon enhancers, to destructive toys, armor, explosives, system-hacks, and more. Use the items wisely to advance deeper into the moon-base.


Starting with three standard Grunt weapons, you will be able to enhance them for more fire-power and range. On your way you'll also find alternate weapons, and melee weapons.


There are various ways to complete the game, anomalies leading to weird places, underground routes, and mysterious items to transport you to other area's of the moon-base. On top of these there are secret rooms and area's located all over the base, so never a dull moment!

Can you find the core of the problems?

It's a good little game. Controls are a little funky at times, but otherwise you're given what they show. Certainly worth more than 1.99.

Space Grunts

I've been a huge fan of Orange Pixel since Meganoid hit the AppStore years back, so my review is probably going to be pretty bias (just laying it out there, also of note, I've become a pretty big TBS and Roguelike fan over the last couple years). But, this is definitely up there among the best games that they have put out. I don't know if Heroes of Loot or this, Space Grunts, is my #1 favorite OP game, but they both give up an amazingly spectacular run for it. The controls might take some getting use to, as they're virtual, but resizing is coming in an update and ATM you can place every button wherever you'd like on the screen. Once I played about 3 games, they were perfect. I couldn't imagine playing it any other way. The mix of action and turn-based gameplay is done incredibly well. I really just can not stop gushing about every aspect of the game. The menus are well done, the UI layout/map setup is on point, the graphics are killer (though they may not look it in the AppStore screens, the game looks GREAT in motion - check out some HQ vids!), the roguelike aspect is done perfectly---It's a great game. One that has already (VERY VERY quickly) earned it's spot on my own GOTY list (#2 of 2 ATM [Feb]) - but I wholeheartedly recommend this to roguelike fans itching for the genre to take a turn towards more arcade-based gameplay. =oD


The new update rocks... thank you for the resizing controls option, the new item and giving each character a level upgrade once they beat the game (having something that sticks with you after making it through that was a great decision...) - and the tweaks. This has very quickly become, not only one of my favorite games of the year, but also one of my favorite roguelikes ever. GET IT!!!!

It's alright

I've had this game for a few years. High scores have never connected.

Gameplay in itself is alright. The current price of 3.99 is kind of steep for what your getting.

The game offers decent combat but very little depth.

This is one of those play for 5 minutes to see how far you can progress, die, and restart.

There are three characters, but nothing to really work for and nothing to unlock.
