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 4 / 5 stars


I know this is based off a board game, but kudos for an incredible game nonetheless. Like mentioned before, my only real problem is the inability to save after a successful mission. The amount of time I beat the reactor mission just to have enough firepower for the operations mission (just to lose them against acid blood or to an alien dropping right on top of them) was almost maddening.

Either way though, this is a fantastic piece of work, highly engaging, entertaining, and addicting. Oh, and hard. Good job.

Leaderboard, please?

This game is AWESOME. The only thing missing is a High Scores leaderboard so that it can finally feel like you accomplished something after having beat it. All the invididual fields featured at the stats at the end of the levels should be included in the high scores.

But thank you. This game is awesome and what's more it is TRULY worthy of the movie it is based off, which is a rare thing indeed. Right on and game over, man!

Supa awsome game

This truly is one of the best and most addicting games of newgrounds but i do think i could have some improvements like what Lime8 which would make it even better perhaps even create a game exactly the same but different movie or game for an example you could have terminater (I think salvation would work best) but still its a very good game that never gets boring.

Cool...but this game needs some upgrades...

-according to the lime8,each marine should have the ability ,,pick up'' the weapons of fallen marines;
-like what lime8 said,Gorman should have some hand grenades;
-like what lime8 said,to be added a bonus mission with Ferro and Spunkmeyer;
-each marine to have 2 weapons of choice;

That's the upgrades that this game needs...

Perfect update to an aging board game

This was one of those games that I never got, but always coveted and it's an absolute blast to play in flash form. Would love to see an update that makes the flame ground more useful. I wish you would reconsider the "no save" feature as I'd really like to try out Operations with more Marines, w/o having to replay the Reactor mission over each time. Your sounds, graphics, and rules translation are top notch! Overall, this is one of favorite games and it inspired me to track down the original board to find those miniatures!
