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 5 / 5 stars

absolutely brilliant

i played this game a while back and this is the first time i have been able to review or rate it. i would agree with rho21 and say the brightness does need to be increased a little. other than that this game is awesome.

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."

"Marines, we are leaving!!!"

So well done, but the Power Loader vs. Alien Queen scenario really needs to be created, I mean everything else is here, why not that too?

But anyways this really is first class. I did a pretty good playthrough of the Reactor Mission and uploaded it to youtube, check it out for anyone that wants to know how to play this correctly. 9Pv0I

Please please please, Powerloader vs Alien Queen, make it happen!

One of the few flash fighting strategy games which really makes sense. I don't know how much do the missions follow the original boardgame (it must be very time-consuming to play it on the board), anyway the atmosphere is unique. I was really feeling like being there when playing it.
It's so hard! But being hard, it makes one think more about the strategy. At first few attempts I was thinking it's unbeatable. But after learning some tricks, I made it! (Well, haven't tried the final mission yet.)
I'd like to see and play some more missions, perhaps inspired by some other Alien sequels...? And what about the battle marines vs. marines? :) Wouldn't be so difficult to make I suppose, once you have made the game engine...

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
