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.

Memorable

I only played the first level (bit short on time right now), but it really had all the things I loved about the movie in it. Since I dont know the board game, I can't speak about how accurately the gameplay has been captured - I just have to say that it is near to impossible to shake off an alien, or kill it with the handgun. Since I forgot who of my marines had what kind of weapon, A kind reminder like different action markers for each weapon would stop me from torching my marines by accident...


homedrone responds:

I added an indicator if an alien is on a marine when selecting targets. If you forget what weapon a marine has, look at his monitor at the top. There is a picture of their weapon in blue.

its a very incredible game. smart gun, pulse rifle, flame, and shotgun units are very effective and are very easy to get to a objective. but i hate the sidearm units. hate them soooo much. but they are the key on the first stage cause on the second stage they have very good weapons. hudson and crowe get pulse rifles and frost gets a flame thrower. if anyone reads this i ask you to have a go of this game

Awesome!

I think there should be several updates for this game:
- Give this game medal system!
- I want one more level: the movie's scene where Ripley battles the Queen using Power Loader. You still can play as Hicks or Newt.
Those updates could make the game cooler and better.

Hard, but OK.

By the way I also played an earlier version of this game. It has no ammo features, however. Enjoyed that more than once!

Good game, but...

Very difficult, and I very much enjoyed the movie series too.
I might just be missing something, though, but as far as I can tell there's a little problem with Operations.
If any of your soldiers are incapacitated, and the rest killed or also incapacitated, then the game continues. I think this is because it picks up on the character that is not controlled by the player, and so thinks you have not lost all of your soldiers yet.
I wouldn't mind this, but as far as I can tell there is no way to quit to menu.
Please do tell me if I'm wrong, but if not, this seems to be quite a large issue for people who may not be magnificent at this game.
I would say this game has more pro's than con's, though.
