The original game is back in action, celebrating its 21st Anniversary! Alien Breed is the classic sci-fi, top-down shooter developed by Team17. Launching originally in 1991, Alien Breed has now been remade for iOS, which can only mean one thing… it’s time to turn down the lights, turn up the sounds and encounter Alien Breed again!
Alien Breed consists of the player or players having to find the lift down to the next level, occasionally setting the self destruct sequence to blow up the level above them. The players collect or purchase a variety of weapons from the space station's computer terminals (Intex I-4000) (this feature is now a shop which can be accessed at any time). Credits found on the ground can be saved for weapons and other enhancements, each giving the players an edge over the gradually more and more powerful Alien forces. In advanced levels, players are occasionally trapped in enclosed spaces with huge "boss" aliens, reminiscent of the Alien Queen.

Team17 are a fully independent video game developer and publisher that was founded in 1990, now in our 22nd year. We develop and publish entertainment software for a wide range of digital download platforms that include PC (Steam), Xbox 360 LIVE Arcade, Sony PlayStation Network (PS3, PSP), Nintendo WiiWare, Apple iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, Apple Mac (Steam) and also social media platforms such as Facebook.
Our key titles include the Worms™ series, which has been a video gaming institution since 1995, Alien Breed, Superfrog, Body Blows, Project-X and more.
As well as Team17's own developed titles, we are working with a number of independent studios to bring a range of quality titles under the Team17 banner.
Originally a publishing company called 17-Bit Software, which grew out of the Microbyte retail chain in 1987, it specialised in cataloging, producing and publishing games for the Public Domain sector of the Amiga Market.
In 1990 it stepped out on its own. Adopting the name "Team17" (a combination of the Team surrounding 17Bit, which had named itself "Team7n" when developing "Miami Chase" for Codemasters), it developed and published Full Contact for the Amiga.The company went on to produce many further titles, almost all of which were regarded as classics by the majority of Videogame Journalists (despite a brief disagreement with Amiga Power). Well known Amiga titles like Alien Breed, Assassin, Project-X and Body Blows were released in the early nineties..
