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.

Loved it.

I feel that Gorman should be a little more accurate with that pistol of his.

I cant get past the operations rooms because I dont know how to cut the door... I thought Vasquez had the torch but I didnt see any special icons and blah blah.

I think the grenades have too great an area of effect. I find myself having to be placed all the way across the room and then firing at the opposite wall and still getting wounded.

Still loved to see this adaptation of ALIENS. Thougt it was really well done. Maybe you can make another with the sentry turrets or some other such thing.


homedrone responds:

You were right, Vasquez has a torch. Along with all the other combat marines. Just move one down to square that the red arrow is pointing to and a "cut door" button will appear.

Ultimate badass.

I love it. Despite the difficulty curve like running into a brick wall, and the fixed squad order, it was awesome. Especially the little things, like seeing weapons dropped on the ground or an incapacitated Marine slung over your shoulder. And the gameplay is unpredictable, too -- three times out of five I'll be thinking I can beat Reactor easily with just one or two WIAs, and then a bunch of aliens show up and everything changes.

Have you gotten many PMs asking for more scenarios?

A COOL THING TO ADD

A COOL THING TO ADD WOULD BE IF AT THE THIRD MISION THE MARINS YOU CAN SAVE WOULD BE ACTIVE AND ARMED
AND I`M NO EXPERT BUT THE ADDONS MADE SEEM TO MAKE ALIENS SPAUN ON MARINES MOR OFTHEN
I LOVE SV GAMES AND MOVIES THAT INCLUDE ALIENS AND STARSHIPS

Awesome game, but I can't get full screen to work which is hard on the eyes.
