1995

Plot


Based around similiar concepts of the Dark Horse Comics rather than the films, you play as Lt. Col. Henricksen Commander of the USS Sheridan.

The four crew members of the USS Sheridan awakening from their cryogenic sleep to investigate an SOS from a mining colony. You must search the mining complex and piece together the scattered evidence to learn exactly what and who is behind the sinister experiments that have gone horribly wrong.

Aliens: A Comic Book Adventure combines very impressive graphics with a suitably claustrophobic atmosphere that succeeds in capturing the mood of the movies.

A first person perspective that switches to third person during the cinematic sequences showing your party exploring the base. and a third person 'isometric' view during the combat sequences.

The game has a link with the Dark Horse Comic series Aliens: Labyrinth, although characters, events and locations are different, the game uses the same premiss.


Gameplay


As Lt. Col. Henricksen, commander of a terra forming team, you must quickly respond to a mysterious distress call. Once you've landed, you soon discover that something cruel and vicious lies beneath the outpost's surface. Something that terrifies even you. Unravel the deadly mystery of Outpost B54-C in this mesmerizing graphic adventure, and defend against the seething horrors within." - Mindscape
