Laser squad Missions

Just had a look on HOL and it mentions that Laser Squad never received an expansion or extra missions disk. Does anyone know if any were ever made by fans for the Amiga port?

The 8 bit version's extra missions 'The Cyber Hordes' & 'Paradise Valley' were obviously included in the Amiga release, but that's where this story ends i'm afraid.

When Target Games originally released the 8bit version of Laser Squad it only had 3 missions but 2 more were available by mail order: Cyber Hordes & Paradise Valley. When Blade re-released Laser Squad they included those 2 missions as standard but offered another 2 by mail order: The Stardrive and Laser Platoon, but sadly, they didn't make it to the Amiga!

Your best bet would be to contact the person who created the LS editor for Android. Development seems to have stopped but he's the best bet for bringing / porting levels from one platform to another

Off Topic I know but Gollup is doing Phoenix Point that has some of the original mechanics found in LS....
its very xcom - but then xcom was very LS.
