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.

good game but i just hate when a alien dont die by alot of marine with pulse rifle it get alot of shot of 70 and 80 damage and it dont die!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I like this game but i found it was kinda dumb that they cant pick up weapons that other marines drop. Like in operatipons i had gorman try to pick up that a other marines pulse rifle but he couldn't?

Ya, I'd like to have that feature too. I programed the game badly though, that's a lot of work to add.

lots of fun

I played the game before the bugs were fixed and even liked it then, I also find its got lots of replay value, my only complaint is when aliens spawn directly on your men, even spawning beside them isn't that shitty but when they land on top its just to much of a shitfest.

I only played the first level (bit short on time right now), but it really had all the things I loved about the movie in it. Since I dont know the board game, I can't speak about how accurately the gameplay has been captured - I just have to say that it is near to impossible to shake off an alien, or kill it with the handgun. Since I forgot who of my marines had what kind of weapon, A kind reminder like different action markers for each weapon would stop me from torching my marines by accident...

homedrone responds:

I added an indicator if an alien is on a marine when selecting targets. If you forget what weapon a marine has, look at his monitor at the top. There is a picture of their weapon in blue.

its a very incredible game. smart gun, pulse rifle, flame, and shotgun units are very effective and are very easy to get to a objective. but i hate the sidearm units. hate them soooo much. but they are the key on the first stage cause on the second stage they have very good weapons. hudson and crowe get pulse rifles and frost gets a flame thrower. if anyone reads this i ask you to have a go of this game
