Ever since you left that last planet, you've been bothered by eerie sounds coming from somewhere in the hull of Nostromo, your giant transport cruiser. After setting the ship's controls on autopilot, you descend to have a look. Yow! Every hallway in the entire maze-like hull has been lined with the grotesque eggs of some gruesome space creature. Quickly you sprint down the corridor crushing the eggs as you go. Then you see it! A hideous being with jaws like a beartrap. You run away from this brutal beast, not wishing to end up as an intergalactic snack. You turn a corner and stare unbelievingly. Another Alien is just ahead. Don't bother calling for help. Remember, in space, no one can hear you scream!

Rather than sticking with the movie storyline and making more of an interactive story, Acclaim and LJN decided to make an action/adventure title instead, and good thing they did. It has a few flaws, but they can be overlooked easily enough by the average gamer.The graphics are somewhat above average for the original gameboy. A3 did NOT stick to the movie, but it at least does an average job of explaining why there are numerous aliens to deal with. Controls are VERY good, which is not very often in my experiences with original game boy games. Very responsive, with no lag between actions.

The proper game to the movie. Shoot and climb your way through a space station. As you progress with the game, you'll have to rescue prisoners which are imprisoned by the famous aliens. It's a valuable plattformer with a high difficulty rating. Another markable thing is the soundtrack, which is totally unusual for the alien series. It isn't the ambient styled chiptune, that you're used to, when playing titles of this series. Instead it is a nice done and quite fast action soundtrack.

Alien 3 is loosely based on the movie of the same name. Players take on the role of Ripley and must work their way through a series of expansive and multi-layered levels freeing humans that the Aliens have captured. There is a time limit on each level; if players cannot find and free all the humans before the limit ends, the game is over. Since humans can be trapped in a variety of places on each level, players must thoroughly explore the stages in order to advance.

Players can acquire and use several different types of weapons after finding their ammunition pick-up. Ripley can carry multiple weapons at the same time, but each weapon has a limited ammunition supply. Ripley also has a health gauge that decreases as the Aliens attack or after landing from a long fall. If Ripley's health gauge reaches zero, players lose a life. Finding and collecting the appropriate power-up can replenish the life gauge.

In addition to jumping and shooting, players can use lifts, open doors, climb ladders and even crawl through tunnels in the levels. Players can shoot while crawling, but cannot shoot while jumping. It is possible to shoot vertically or even diagonally while standing, however. Aliens are much faster than Ripley and generally cannot be avoided, so they must be shot. Each creature takes several shots from the standard gun to dispatch, but unlike their movie cousins, do not leave an acid pool when killed.

As with the Mega Drive and Game Gear versions, this is brilliant. Guide Ripley through the treacherous space-ship in a stunning platform adventure. Loads to do and powerups galore make it a winner.

Something has gone terribly wrong on the Suliaco's return trip back to Earth. Flight Officer Ellen Ripley finds herself alone on a prison planet, the sole survivor of her ship's unexpected destruction. Unknown to her and the inmates, she has brought an unwelcome visitor with her - an old and deadly acquaitence that could mean death for them all. Loosely based on the live-action sci-fi film starring Sigourney Weaver.

I usually don't like movie translation games, but this one's quite good. Good graphics and you get to be Ripley too.

Story:
A homicidal alien race is invading Earth, and the only thing that stands between them and world domination are a special forces team known as the "Alien Busters."

Gameplay:
Alien Storm is a side-scrolling beat 'em up. The game resembles Golden Axe, with a similar artistic style, three playable characters (a man, a woman, and a novelty character) and pick-up or power-up special attacks. All of the Busters are playable from the beginning of the game. There are 6 missions to complete with several stages, and each mission has the player blasting aliens, from the streets to the mother ship, where the mother of all aliens can be found. This task becomes increasingly difficult with each new mission, and the aliens are capable of hiding inside objects such as plants, postboxes, trashcans, drums, and other items. Each mission has an objective such as rescuing people or destroying a UFO.

Shapeshifting alien scum take over your city. Fry the slimy horrors and smash their bid for global conquest. Blast into action with fire blazers, electric whips and more!

The aliens are invading Earth, and it's up to the "Alien Busters" to wipe them out and destroy their creator. The Busters consist of Karla, Gordon, and Scooter. Each one of them have their own weapons and special attacks.
When you start the game, you can select any one of these characters to play as. There are six missions to complete (eight in the Genesis version) with several stages, and each mission has you blasting aliens all the way to the end, from the streets to the mother ship where you'll meet the mother of all aliens. Unfortunately, blasting these aliens will not be an easy task, as they get tougher in every mission, and are capable of hiding into objects such as plants, postboxes, trashcans, drums, and several others. Each mission has an objective such as rescuing people destroying an UFO.

When you deal with a few aliens, flying heads will appear, which you can shoot to collect life or energy (by the way, life is important to you, since if yours get empty, you're dead). However, rather than using your ordinary weapons, you can use the special attacks that are enough to kill aliens you currently see. These types of attack vary depending on the character you choose at the start of the game. For instance, Gordon summons a U.S. Air Force Jet that drop bombs across the street, while Scooter is able to teleport out of his present location, and leave a series of bombs that will blow up aliens on sight, he will then re-appear. However, using your character's special attack uses up a lot of energy, and if you have little or no energy, you can't use it.

At the end of some missions is an alien boss, which you must destroy in order to complete the mission. Also, at the end of every one, you have to enter buildings where you participate in a shooting gallery. The object is to kill aliens popping up from several locations with the building.

Massive 'save the human race' game, with cool visuals, but a bit easy. A sort of Golden Axe in the 21st century.

Alien Syndrome is a run and gun arcade game developed by Sega in 1987.

You must fight your way through large eight-way scrolling levels rescuing their comrades who are being held by aliens. After they have rescued a certain number of hostages the exit opens and they can pass through it in order to fight the end-of-level guardian. If this monstrosity is defeated, they move onto the next stage. As well as two player simultaneous gameplay, Alien Syndrome features pick-ups which assist the player including better weapons and maps of the current level.

Say hello to one of the best alien themed shooters you'll ever have played. Even though the bosses can give you a really hard time in some stages, this game has a high addictive rate. Just run around in the space station and shoot all that moves. While gunning your way through the nice levels (don't search door openers...just shoot them) you have to rescue the human prisoners, that are standing in several corners. The bird-view and the map are making the game really comfortable to play, since you don't have to guess your way every time a path crosses.

They've come from beyond the galaxy and taken your friends hostage. You're an Earth Command Trooper. You're going to get them back!

Control soldiers who must fight their way through large eight-way scrolling levels and rescue all the captives and make it to the escape hatch before the time bomb explodes. Then face the mother alien at the end of the each level.

If you can get hold of a friend, this game becomes a real pleasure to play as you team up to explore and destroy alien-infested ships.

The year is 2089 of the Galactic Calendar. In this far-flung future, humans have colonized the outer planets. Without warning, the glory of this achievement turned into disaster: A horrible race of aliens has imprisoned an entire colony aboard its space ships! Each of these vessels houses countless numbers of slimy monsters led by a vicious alien "boss". Having miraculously escaped capture, you must go from ship to ship in a valiant effort to save your fellow humans.

Based on the arcade game, Alien vs. Predator is a fun, though run-of-the-mill side-scroller from Activision. Taking the role of the Predators, you must destroy Aliens that are inhabiting Earth as you hunt them down through city sewers, streets, and buildings that contain the deadly creatures and their queens. Both the Aliens and the Predators are well-animated and easily useridentifiable, and the music and sound effects are suitably creepy (if not overly-repetitive). Boss levels could use a dose of adrenaline, while a two-player mode and the ability to play as the Alien would have boosted replay value. Like the Predators in the game, Alien vs. Predator blends into the genre's background when it should be leading the pack.

One of the most popular Jaguar games and was exclusive to the system when it was released. Alien vs. Predator, or AVP, was set to be released at as a launch title for the Jaguar, but it was unfortunately delayed for a year. This first person shooter, in which you may choose to play as a Space Marine, Alien, or Predator, was probably responsible for selling a number of Jag consoles by itself.

The Date: 2593 A.D.
The Planet: Alpha Centauri 3, 8.6 Light-years from Earth.
Background: Originally settled by human colonists for the purpose of mining the rich ore deposits and shipping them back to the resource-depleted Earth.
Recent Events: A predator drone ship placed alien eggs onto the planet, which hatched and produced a fine crop of alien prey. The human population was eradicated in the process. A predator hunting party then arrived to hunt the aliens, but the number of aliens was underestimated and all the predators were, in turn, wiped out.
Theory: An alien queen is present, which would explain the larger-than-anticipated population of aliens.
Mission: It is now up to you, the last of your clan, to regain the predators' honor. And your own.

You control the Predator, who must proceed through a warehouse-like area to eventually find and defeat the Alien queen. Each level is laid out like a maze with a series of platforms and ladders. The Predator must find a key located somewhere in the level and use it to pass the exit door for the level (presented as a thick black block). A map is drawn at the top of the screen and is filled in as the player explores the level to aid in navigation. The Predator has an energy meter that starts at 50 and gradually decreases over time. Once the meter has emptied, the Predator's map will slowly be completely cleared. Some levels feature an energy power-up that will refill the energy meter.

Aliens: Thanatos Encounter is a top-down action game taking its main inspiration from the second film in the Alien franchise.

Story:
A platoon of Colonial Marines, en route to Earth from a training mission, are awakened from hypersleep by a distress signal from the space freighter Thanatos. Ordered to board the massive ship and investigate the situation, they find themselves inside a nightmare: a massive infestation of xenomorphs.

Gameplay:
Before each level, the player can choose from five different characters, all with unique stats such as health and stamina. If a character runs out of health, they don't actually die. Instead, they are captured for egg insemination. Like in TMNT for the NES, you can rescue your captured team mates. However you only have 200 seconds to do so before they are permanently taken off your roster.
Weapons include a standard-issue pistol, there are shotguns, pulse rifles, flame throwers, grenade launchers and smartguns to be found in the levels. Available from the start is the motion tracker radar, displaying both human survivors as well as hostile aliens.
