Plot


Aliens is an arcade game based on the horror movie of the same name. In the game the first player controls Ripley and the second player controls Corporal Hicks. The only difference between the two characters is the graphical design, since the weapons and abilities are the same for both.

This is a different game from the 1987 Aliens developed by Square for the MSX.

Gameplay


Gameplay is set in three areas that are linked and featured in the film, a journey in the APC links these areas, they are Hadley's Hope, Atmosphere Processor buildings and the USS Sulaco. Hadley's Hope is made up from the living quarters, laboratories and corridors while the atmosphere processor buildings include the factory installation, vents, corridors, lifts, gantries and landing pad and the Sulaco only includes the landing bay and airlock. During the first APC level a girl appears and a flying alien flies off with her in the second APC level she is there greeting you as you finish.
