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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Game

Though a warning about the wall exploding on the last mission after 29 turns would have been nice.

I really enjoyed having played this game, at first I was angry because of the difficulty, but was improving gradually and liking it. A shame to be so short, but you get through life the characters based on the second Alien movie. I finished a long time but always play a few times a day, I hope you make more games in this genre

Very cool

Only one criticism, and it's only because you're doing such a good job staying faithful to the original board game.

In the original board game, marines are allowed to move through each other's spaces, so long as they don't end their turns in the same space.

This tripped me up a few times the first time I played your version.

Oh, and the Operations scenario - in the original rule book, it states that Ripley *must* move Newt down the hallway at her first opportunity. (She can leave Newt there and return to the fight, tho.)

Really good.

It was really hard though. I rated it good because I like a challange anyways. The concept and gameplay is interesting. I managed to pass the first level with some ease, but in the second level, I made the mistake of not sending newt into the small area, and I had to give up ripley because there were about 10 waves of aliens coming from above, and I still lost.

-nice gameplay
-good concept
-good graphics

-add an easier mode
-survival would be nice
-make it so that we can select team-mates to go in any order (during a turn, not at beginning)

I think you have something going here.
