Notes:   [1] Original game concept by Julian Gollop of Target Games; scenario design assistance by Ian Terry.

[2] LASER SQUAD is a sci-fi, turn-based strategy wargame designed by Julian Gollop that expanded on ideas developed in the REBELSTAR game series, released earlier in the 1980s for 8-bit platforms. Many of the ideas developed in LASER SQUAD were, in turn, utilised in fantasy, turn-based strategy wargame LORDS OF CHAOS (1990/91) and UFO: ENEMY UNKNOWN (1994/95), which was originally conceived by Gollop as LASER SQUAD 2.

[3] While a LASER SQUAD expansion disk containing new missions was released for 8-bit platforms, the Amiga never realised any further missions commercially or otherwise. Unsurprisingly, isometric turn-based wargame LASER SQUAD NEMESIS (2002) did not see an Amiga release either.
