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.

This game was phenomenal.. possibly the most awesome board game in the planet! I salute your wonderful imagination and generally superior coding skills!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

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.

Graphics and sound were good.

Its good.

But it needs a lot of work.

However, for a first time flash, and for an attempt at reviving a board game I think this is a great start. Keep improving it and it will go far.
