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.

One of my favorites

This game... I'm at a loss for words. i watched Aliens the other day and was desperate for some kind of Aliens TBS, for free, online. I stumbled upon this and promptly lost the rest of my day to it (in a good way.) There are no praises I can give that haven't been given already. I found the difficulty to be incredibly frustrating, but at the same time it was also what made the game so enjoyable and satisfying. I don't know if you've hung up the animating tools for good, but if you haven't I'd love to see another game like this, or an expansion to this one. If you have moved on with your life, be proud of yourself, this was quite an achievement.

On a side note, does anybody know where I can find more games like this? They don't have to be Alien(s) related.

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!
