If gut-wrenching terror is your idea of a good time, then this game for you. Based on the movie of the same name, it's your duty to guide Lieutenant Ripley through Fiorina 161 prison camp in search of survivors... and aliens. Using your pulse rifle, grenade launcher, and blowtorch, you must work your way through six levels of intense side-scrolling action. With your trusty motion tracker, you'll be warned of other life forms as they draw near, the only question is, is it a friend or a foe? As you move through the complex you'll have to free the cocooned prisoners that the aliens have designated as their next meal, while making sure you don't become a victim yourself. The aliens are quick and relentless, but you're humanity's only hope in this adrenaline-pumping masterpiece.
You play as Ripley. You must find and free all the captives hidden around the levels while avoiding the nasty Alien and before the time runs out and aliens burst out. You'll have three weapons at your disposal in your effort to rid the colony of aliens: a pulse rifle, a flame-thrower, and a grenade launcher. A motion tracker will help warn you of impending doom as you make your way through the maze-like air shafts and gloomy cell blocks. Access various computer terminals to receive level blueprints and select your assignments, which range from sealing off doors to rescuing cocooned prisoners.
