    Game Introduction

    Aliens is a run-and-gun shoot 'em up arcade game by Konami released in 1990, based on the Aliens film. It picks up mid-movie with Lt. Ripley and Cpl. Hicks attempting to leave the alien-infested colony by making their way towards the drop ship, and notably takes some liberties with the film's storyline and the Aliens' biology.

    You and your partner must shoot all the attacking aliens as you progress throughout the many levels of the game. The joystick controls the player movement while the buttons let you shoot from either a standing or crouched position.

    More detailed information on Aliens and game play can be found here: http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_de...p?game_id=6859

    It's a start. Played this a fair bit way back when I worked at Timezone but that was around 20 years ago. Bloody old fart I am.

          I told you it sucked

          To be fair I will give this a shot, but it so isn't the type of game I played as a kid - in fact I just ignored them altogether

            Cool, being a bigtime Alien/s fan (lets not get started on Prometheus arguments lol) I've wondered about this game a lot but never given it more than a look in, so will be good to get into it a bit more... Must have a look at the cute 'em up too, interesting pair of games on at the mo very non-trad, I'm liking the direction of this MGL so far

            Edit: had a quick few games, dammit just made it to the cargo loader then for some reason a huge wrecking ball dropped out of the sky

            Ripley sure has a lot of ammo.

                      This has been a terrible MGL for me, the horizontal MAME cab went down a few weeks ago so was hoping for some Vertical games to come up, just does not feel right on the iMac

                              I've been wondering about that myself. Haven't been noticing any real difference in the effectiveness of weapons so I've been sticking with the flamethrower just because of its proven track record against aliens.

                              I've run across health bonuses a couple of times but not in every game. Is there a way to ensure these get dropped?
