This is an adaptation of the ALIENS board game made by Leading Edge Games into Flash.

It is a hard game, but there are only 3 missions. Enjoy the difficulty.

Good luck.

TIPS:
Flamer kills don't have acid spray. Use them on aliens up close, but when the alien is on a marine, it's too late for flamers. Use melee (fist icon) to try to throw the alien off.

Pistols are almost useless. These marines should just move or help melee an alien off one of his buddies.

Grenades kill aliens 1 square away from the blast square, but injure marines up to 6 squares away. Plus, there is a chance the grenade will miss the target square by one, so plan carefully if you want to use grenades.

NOTE: It was designed for 1024x786, so I'm sorry if it's hard to make out some details in 800x600.

absolutely brilliant

i played this game a while back and this is the first time i have been able to review or rate it. i would agree with rho21 and say the brightness does need to be increased a little. other than that this game is awesome.

Superb

Wow. Atmospheric (you'll need to increase your screen brightness a little), and lots of strategy required. The difficulty level is just about right, too: you never feel it's easy yet with some thought and a bit of luck it's certainly possible. For those who think otherwise, see the screenshot linked below.

The only downside is that the AI is a bit predictable at times, and the aliens are very bad at finding their way past walls. It can be possible to leave a marine to attract the attention of a number of the aliens whilst your other troops walk right past them. A human controlling them (might this be an option) would eat that marine very swiftly.

On the plus side, it's huge fun, particularly when Apone pulls off a really great turn (flame an alien, pull another off one of his buddies and flame it too) or when some careful play keeps all your marines alive despite some bad luck.

More scenarios would be great, plus I think you should implement the ammo rules, or at least limit the number of grenades a marine can carry. The second level is a bit on the easy side with infinite grenades: I can beat it without a wound about 95% of the time. I could probably do it anyway, but it would be much harder.

One bug: if you keep all your marines alive through the first level, some of the result lines disappear off the bottom of later results pages. A scroll bar would be helpful. See this screenshot of the final level, completed with all marines alive and unwounded, Newt and Burke rescued and (if you look closely just to the right of the words Frost and Vasquez), the queen dead.

That took some effort. Thanks for all yours in making this game.

AWESOME, HERE'S A TRICK TO LEVEL 2

GREAT GAME. I LOVE THE ALIENS FRANCHISE. HERE'S A CHEAT TO LEVEL 2. THE MORE OF YOUR MARINES SURVIVE IN THE RECTOR, THE EASIER IT WILL BE TO GET THROUGH THE DOOR ON LEVEL 2. GO ALIENS!!!
