Swarm Queen

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

Each of your minions has its own AI, controlling its behavior on the pseudo-3D battlefield. Mutate your eggs, spawn your swarm, spit some goop, and watch the chaos of battle!

CONTROLS: Controls are enabled during the first few levels. You can always press [SPACEBAR] to speed up the game or progress dialogue, or [ESC] to pause the game and view level details.

PREMIUM VERSION: This is the free online version of Swarm Queen. The premium version is available on Steam, with some additional features, including:

  • Custom screen size and full-screen mode.
  • Higher-quality art, sounds, and music.
  • Reliable save files (save to your PC and to the Steam cloud, instead of using cookies that your browser may delete randomly.)
  • +3 bonus challenge levels.
  • Unlock a hat! :o


Production Notes: Swarm Queen was created over a period of about 4 years; when I started, Flash was still a big thing, and by the time I was done, it was being phased out. This is both my first full game with a premium paid version, and my last Flash game. The coding language that I learned during production (Actionscript 3) is immediately out of date, but luckily, it's almost identical to the cross-platform language HAXE, which I'm playing around with at the moment.
