Plot


Alien Crush is a pinball video game developed by NAXAT Soft for the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. It was released in 1988. It was later re-released on the Wii Virtual Console and on the PlayStation Network.

The game is the first installment in the "Crush Pinball" series. It was followed by three sequels, Devil's Crush, Jaki Crush, and Alien Crush Returns.


Gameplay


Alien Crush features a science fiction theme reminiscent of the film Alien. Essentially, the player is "fighting" against the aliens with their pinball skills.

The playfield of Alien Crush consists of two main screens arranged vertically, with a pair of flippers at the bottom of each. The play stops momentarily as the ball shifts from one screen to the next. There are also several hidden/bonus rooms. These hidden rooms mainly involve destroying all the aliens (or several waves of aliens) for bonus points.

The player is given the choice of a fast or slow ball speed and two different music tracks.

NAXAT Soft, also known as Kaga Create Co.,Ltd. is a Japan-based video game developing and publishing division of Kaga Electronics.

It later released titles for a wide array of gaming systems, including the Game Boy, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the Dreamcast, the 3DO, the PlayStation, the Sega Saturn, and the PC-FX. The Virtual Cameraman games for 3DO released in 1995 marked the decline of Naxat Soft after the TurboGrafx. The company's releases stopped around 2005, with recent games primarily being re-releases of TurboGrafx titles on the Wii.
