About Rebel Cops:

Rebel Cops, a spin-off set in the world of the critically acclaimed “This is the Police” franchise, offers 15+ hours of challenging tactical missions with a high replay value due to various feasible approaches to each mission and tough player choices with impactful outcomes. The game’s hardcore TBS operations will have you outgunned and outnumbered and a single bullet can cost a squad member’s life.

Key Features

  • Hardcore Turn Based Strategy: There are no hitpoints in Rebel Cops. Once shot, your officers will bleed out unless you act fast to save them. The same goes for the bad guys, so make sure you have the upper hand before engaging in a firefight!
  • Multiple Approaches: Try to finish an entire mission without raising a single alarm or just go in guns blazing. Equip each cop with the gear that fits them best. Make tough choices along the way and live with the consequences.
  • Versatile Maps and Side Missions: Explore more than 15 scenarios, from compact operations to big, open-ended locations. Build up your street cred in Ripton by helping out local residents in side tasks and collect rewards for investigating the levels thoroughly.
  • Take the moral high ground – or not: Will you play by the book or by your own rules? Fight fire with fire and mercilessly wipe out Zuev’s syndicate or try to be a good rebel cop and arrest suspects without shedding an ounce of blood. It’s your decision, but remember that your reputation will affect morale and even your merchant’s prices.
