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.

A new version will come out soon with quite a new features. Better alien movement. Ability to flame the ground. Ammo restrictions. But still no ability to pick up weapons ;(

I'm thinking over the problem though, so be hopeful.

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...

Very cool game

So glad I found this site! I'm a huge Aliens fan and absolutely love this game. Never got to play the original board game but i'm pretty sure i'd still like this more. I loved this game so much, I gave it a glowing review at my scifi site Inter-Galaxy Portal. Thanks!!

I bought the board game and the expansion both when they first came out, and have many fond memories of playing this game back in high school. This Flash version is a spot-on perfect recreation of the board game, and everything that made it fun-- the sound effects, music, everything are authentic and perfect.
