ALIENS the Board Game

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.

If I do not have a Facebook does it mean I cannot play? why?
I am going to miss this game a lot

I've actually managed to have Burke as a playable character in Mission 3.
I've incapacitated him in Mission 2, then picked him up. Also the door was NOT sealed because of that. LOL.
Pistol is not that useless. One square away it has 20% accuracy, you can make 2 shots with that.
I wish there was a way NOT to bring marines in mission 3.

My Team order is following.
0. Burke. (lol wat)
1. Pistol guys (it's okay if they miss, great if they hit)
2. Flamers (Kill those dangerously close aliens first)
3. Smart Guns (get those double kills)
4. Pulse riffles ( Nade'em, snipe'em)
5. Shotty. (because of low ammo count)
Expirienced marines act last in their category.

Love this game. I discovered a glitch tho. if you melee an alien in the Reactor, and throw it into the big pit in the center, then melee it again and are able to throw it FARTHER into the pit (so now it's 2 spaces from the edge) the game completely crashes lol.

I got Hudson in the Reactor mission to kill two aliens with his pistol and that was a miracle if I have ever seen one

This is an exceptional game - highly addictive and a real hidden gem. It's as good as you can possibly get in terms of putting you in control of the marines during those two iconic set pieces from Aliens. You should do something similar in line with the fire/containment scene and the chase and bait scene from Alien 3.
