About This Game

The endless darkness and the somber, long passages of a military complex have become the abode of evil, as thousands of blood-thirsty creatures fill its offices, storehouses and mysterious laboratories.
Your mission is simple: clear the base at all costs. You will be provided with explosives to help you gain access to the teleports from where thousands of pitiless creatures pour. A stationary gun will aid in the defense of the area. You have been granted access to the most advanced weapons technology money can buy. As you earn your pay, you can equip yourself with additional weapons in the arming area and biomechanical implants that will make your fighting abilities super human.
The alien invasion has begun, we have one chance, and that is to stop them cold in their staging area. Do not allow them escape this facility, you are our last hope. The fate of humanity now depends on you!

In this game you shoot aliens.

You shoot a lot of aliens.
I like it more than the zombie ones, but yeah, cannot really go wrong with the sigma team shooters. Except zombie 2, that was kinda bad.

Its like being 8 again.

10/10.

They should partner up with a rich publisher, and work on a Dead Space/Metro esque horror Alien Shooter game.
I would pay $60 for it.

Very good arcade shooter, if you enjoy twinstick shooters, then get this, it'll have you hooked for hours on end shooting alien monsters and turning them into nothing but chucks. Sigma Team are some of the best devs I've ever seen when it comes to twinstick shooters and overall replay value in said gametype, this game alone ended up sucking up at least 100 hours of my time off of steam years ago, maybe even before steam was a thing.


Its a solid 8/10 - Could use some polish, but overall its amazing. Also, its remake. Alien Shooter - Revisted. Its a rather good remake, but it seems to not work with windows 8.1, which is odd, but since I got both of these, Alien Shooter 2 Reloaded, and Zombie Shooter in a pack for like 7$ total, it wasn't a big deal to me.

Just got some cheap old games..... it's a shoot-em up with fixed perspective. It's not too complicated once you getting hang of it... but you will addicted sooner later.

PRO :
-Simple.
-Campaign mode is also simple. Nothing else.
-Try Survival till the end... can you?
-Destroy them all... simple concept but it works.

CONS :
-Very short for campaign mode... i beat 2hours and the end. And the ending sequence was... kinda.....yeah.
-Weapon shop... probably you could get whole weapon in the last stage only.
-Fixed perspective so expect any missed item around hidden spot.
-Mini-Game class. Buy the sequel ones for next story....
-5 dollars for that game.. you could try to find this game around every Bundle sites for cheaper ones.

===============================================

FINAL RATING : "KILL THEM ALL" / 10

Game of my childhood. One of the best 2D shooters I've ever played. Special effects are the best. There is blood everywhere. After many years I still love this game more than John Paul the 2nd. The only minus of this game is nothing.

Played it many many times eons ago (I have the CD for quite a while now).
It is truly a classic for me. Ideal for relieving stress.

About the gameplay:
- Find the entrance
- Switch on your flashlight
- Collect ammo (and weapons)
- Find and start the generator in the building
- Wait a couple of seconds
- Shoot
- Shoot more
- Shoot even more
- Collect ammo
- Shoot
- Shoot more
- Shoot even more
- Shoot the sh*t out of them
- Kill 'em
- Kill 'em like a rabid animal
- Kill 'em like a rabid animal with style
- Shoot something that ends the level
- Develop your character
- Repeat

I really like the crazy amount of monsters, who are waiting just for you to massacre them.
If you like this, check out the other episodes, they are basicly the same as this here.

... and of course check out Zombie Shooter 1-2, too!

A simple top down shooter with one goal, KILL, EVERYTHING,

You get 2 modes:

Campaign:
Where you must beat level after level, it goes harder and with every level it comes more enemies,
you get a shop at start to buy upgrades, items and weapons to get stronger.

Survival:
Where you must fight against enemies until you die, stand how long as you can, with time it comes more and more enemies but weapons, upgrades, items and (only in this mode) powerups will come too.

(For newbies maybe the game is a little bit hard at start, just need a few trys)


The soundtrack is good and comes better together with this massacre of alien killing.

Before you buy this GET SURE your want a shooter where you just hold the mouse button to destory an alien army. (and at THIS point the game does all right)
Nothing special but i think it makes fun, and is good for when you get bored or to kill time.

Don't let the graphics fool you. This is an excelent isometric shooter that leaves you feeling like a God of death by the end. The power creep is almost perfectly designed assuming you pay attention and buy all the new shiney guns when you can. The first time you wipe out an entire room in one shot is one hell of a feeling.

Highly recommended. I'm currently on my second play through.

This tiny game has literally become a classic over all these years. A dozen of guns, hordes of enemies, simplistic, yet dynamic and fast-paced gameplay and lots of gore. What else is needed for a good game about killing aliens? Well, maybe a little more than ten fairly modest levels that can be beaten in just two hours. But considering when and by whom Alien Shooter was made these problems are understandable. This game also has a number of sequels that somewhat help with it's short length, but I would prefer all them compiled in one 'big' game (a re-release, maybe?) than in five different short ones.

Simple, crazy, fun are the three words I would use to describe the wonderful display of wanton destruction that is Alien Shooter. Don't pay too much attention to the story because there isn't one, pay attention to the big guns and bigger baddies who you will be blowing up into a thousand giblets with your insane arsenal. Basically look at the screenshots thats the game blood, gore, big guns so if you like that sort of thing definitely pick this up.

Alien Shooter is very fun game with many good weapon and enemy variety. Graphics are still look fine to me. This game is a good choice for killing some time. I recommend it.

Note: The game has some working issues on Win 8.1. I couldn't solve it.
