ALIENS the Board Game

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.

i am a HUGE fan of aliens so 10 stars immedeatly also to clarify something it was HICKS not hudson who said Express elevator to hell goin down! also I find the game bit too hard but still a s*** load of fun. You should add hudsons famous quote... Game Over Man Game Over!

homedrone responds:

I wanted to put in lots of quotes, but I couldn't get nice clean sound bites.

GORMAN "Yes, Hicks?"
HUDSON " Hudson, Sir. He's Hicks."

This is a great game

But you should be able to knock off the aliens in one hit.... because when i play rescue newt as soon as im tackled i die and HOW DO U KILL THE QUEEN???? one of the most hard lvls would have to be Operations


pretty awesome a few problems.... u should make it so that aliens can't apear in the start zone on the first turn. and can someone tell me what the point of flaming the ground is?

homedrone responds:

An oversight in my programming makes the flame ground a little less useful than it should be, but you can still use it in a few places. Key being to hold the aliens back in the Operations bottleneck before you close the door.

Use it right and you can even kill the queen with Ripley.

My error is that the aliens should not be able to move diagonally through the corners of flame and other obstructs like other flame and walls.

i like it

im a big fan of aliens so yeah 10 stars

A probably well known bug is...

When someone with a machinnegun kills an alien, and he has the option to kill another alien near the first one the option to cancel is not visible. I'd say this is absurd and annoying. Because of that always some of the men dies killed by acid. Well, of course I should have moved the cursor over the character, and I would've seen I was able to cancel... but well, I am... lazy.

Still I liked it a lot and played it once a week for months, although I don't really like the chances to kill an enemy by shooting, it's so random.
