Following hot on the heels of the current coin-op champ, Konami's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, comes Konami's latest side-scrolling action-packed quarter-chomper, Aliens. Licensed from the blockbuster movie of the same name, the video game version of one of the best movies of all time follows the storyline from the motion picture while introducing new play perspectives and an even greater assortment of creepy creatures!
You (and an optional friend) have been placed in command of a special rescue mission to an alien planet light years away. It seems that the colonists have disappeared and an unknown alien organism may be involved.
Grab your trusty rifles and head into combat, blowing away anything that moves! During your battles you'll face all kinds of creatures - even the chest-busting alien snakes from the movie! Power-ups and end of level Bosses, in both the sidescrolling and new first-person environments add to the excitement, albeit changing the original storyline slightly.
If you're in the mood to waste some serious numbers of nasty aliens, or if you ever wanted to be in the unsettling situations you watched in the movie, then this game is for you! The action may be familiar to anyone who has played Contra, but the graphics, sounds and familiar theme combine to make this one arcade outing determined to tear your face off (did anyone see that face hugger?)!
