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.

Glorifies Cruelty to Aliens!

As a member of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Aliens), I think it's disgusting that you've made a "game" of killing these beautiful, intelligent creatures!

Do you know how many aliens are needlessly slaughtered every year by space marines, predators, and sites nuked from orbit?

How you can glorify such cruelty is beyond me.

You know, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them %#$@!ing each other over for a higher rank on Newgrounds.

Great recreation of the game!

Love it, was my favorite board game growing up and my favorite franchise.

One bug you have, the 'flame ground' doesn't pay attention to empty ammo.

Supa awsome game

This truly is one of the best and most addicting games of newgrounds but i do think i could have some improvements like what Lime8 which would make it even better perhaps even create a game exactly the same but different movie or game for an example you could have terminater (I think salvation would work best) but still its a very good game that never gets boring.
