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.

"One express elevator to hell, going down"

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.

I love Aliens!

Awesome game dude! It's one hell of an ass kicker though, holy shit. I've only played it like 3 times so far, so I'm still learning. I love how you put the original Aliens music into the game, really makes you feel like your in the movie. Maybe you could expand on the levels in the future?

People find this review helpful!

Great Stuff

I have a couple copies of the board game (with expansion) and a several pounds of the miniatures. You actually improved on the game, I think.

I think you should take things a step further and make more scenarios, and add in the missing scenarios (dropship vs. alien and powloader vs queen).

PS: You're correct (not XenomorphSlayer), it was Hudson, NOT Hicks that said the "one express elevator..." quote. How a "fan" of the movie could get that famous quote wrong, I don't know!!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


i am a HUGE fan of aliens so 10 stars immedeatly also to clarify something it was HICKS not hudson who said Express elevator to hell goin down! also I find the game bit too hard but still a s*** load of fun. You should add hudsons famous quote... Game Over Man Game Over!

homedrone responds:

I wanted to put in lots of quotes, but I couldn't get nice clean sound bites.

GORMAN "Yes, Hicks?"
HUDSON " Hudson, Sir. He's Hicks."

This is a great game

But you should be able to knock off the aliens in one hit.... because when i play rescue newt as soon as im tackled i die and HOW DO U KILL THE QUEEN???? one of the most hard lvls would have to be Operations


Rated 5 / 5 stars


pretty awesome a few problems.... u should make it so that aliens can't apear in the start zone on the first turn. and can someone tell me what the point of flaming the ground is?

homedrone responds:

An oversight in my programming makes the flame ground a little less useful than it should be, but you can still use it in a few places. Key being to hold the aliens back in the Operations bottleneck before you close the door.

Use it right and you can even kill the queen with Ripley.

My error is that the aliens should not be able to move diagonally through the corners of flame and other obstructs like other flame and walls.
