I actually really enjoyed this game,

My only gripe is that it seems impossible to complete the game on extreme.

Otherwise a fun little time killer..!

If you got it in a bundle or you got it for a dollar, then its a nice short game. You just send troops to the "hallway" to fight npc troops and then destroy their base. Remember starcraft 1 custom maps? Something like that :) 7/10

Such a great game from Sigma Team Inc! I used to play Zombie Shooter on my old Windows XP and when I first got my new Windows 8 I installed the Zombie Shooter demo. To be honest, this game is not worth $4.99, but I got this game for $0.35 so I think it was a great deal! When I first played, I was thinking in my mind "What the hell am I doing? This game is possibly the worst game ever!" But I grew to like it. I play it offline alot and I still earn achievements. It is really not a bad game. My brothers play Cartoon Defense 4 on their tablets and this game is kind of like that! It is really a great game and I really like it! Reccommend for all of you viewing this review!

Alien Hallway is very aptly named. It takes place entirely in hallways and it has aliens in it.

The game is a simplistic tug-of-war. And when I say simplistic, I don't mean it's been dumbed down, I mean whack-a-mole has more complexities than this. You spawn soldiers and they automatically walk down the hallway towards the endless alien spawner. The only decision you have is when your soldiers should use their grenades but even those are on a cooldown so it's no big thing if you waste a few.

In between missions you get to spend the money you earn on upgrades in a small metagame and as the game progresses more soldiers and aliens unlock. The gameplay however, never changes.

Because everything is on a tiered cooldown so you will never have any choices to make beyond which soldier to build first. Everything after that is simply bought when the cooldown ends, not when you need or want it.

Alien Hallway is a perversion of the genre and so easy even a child could play it and win.

a 'not-so-bad' tug-of-war game that can be fun for a moment.
+ difficulty can be choosen from easy to extreme.
+ upgradeable units & skills.
+ steam achievements (easy for first 75%).
- a bit repetitive, but it's a short game, just about 3 hours.
- no keyboard shortcut to buy units.

Alien Hallway is a real time strategy game played out like a tug of war between you and the aliens. If you've played Swords and Soldiers, you get the idea.

You gather resources with engineers to produce more and more, we'll call them Space Marines of various types to push back the alien onslaught and eventually destroy their teleporter and prevent the aliens doing the same to you. Units come in various types from the cheapest Flame-throwers who stand toe to toe with the aliens to the more expensive longe range, fragile but high damage units like Snipers and Missile Launchers. The basic jist of the games is to produce lines of various units to not only do damage but to protect the high value, high production time units at the back. Flame-throwers and riflemen are cheap don't do a lot of damage, but die well to protect the better units.

Completing a hallway earns you gold that can be used to upgrade you units and improve various other aspects like earning more gold when you complete a level, decrease the time it takes to produce units and have the engineers collect more energy. The mechanic is similar to Defender's Quest where at higher difficulty levels you will need to grind levels multiple times to be strong enough to move on. At normal you can just do one level after another without too much trouble.

The graphics are serviceable at best and the game could use some usability improvements. You can't use key-binds to produce units and the default mouse pointer is mostly black against a black background and can be hard to see. Also don't try to take a screenshot, it crashes the game to desktop.

All in all, if you can get the game for cheap, it's decent fun for a few hours. Don't think about paying full price.

It may seem like a mindless strategy game contradiction, but that's exactly what Alien Hallway is; an RTS with all the difficult decisions removed to make room for way more explosions and rag doll death scenes - and it's a perfectly satisfactory experience, although, you are unlikely to ever want to return to it once you've finished the campaign, there doesn't seem to be any replay-ability

This is a very short game that is certainly not worth full price, but I actually found it pretty fun in the sense that it is a casual click-click strategy game. I mean it's basically mindless mouse clicking when your units or artillery are ready, but there's a lot of action going on at all times that makes it feel engaging. As you complete levels you earn gold to power up your units which keeps it interesting, but your units end up being overpowered against the enemy letting you pretty much just run over them untouched. Kinda fun, but I wouldn't want to tell you this is a must buy.

Alien Hallway is a decent 2.5D tower defense title where you have to defeat aliens. The graphics are poorly done, as well as the interface. The sounds are nothing to write home about and the gameplay is exactly the same as 90% of all the other TD games. Trust me if I say you'll have a better time with any other of those titles. Is it that bad ? No, it isn't, but it just isn't fun or challenging.

[Rating: 58/100]

Very simple humans vs. aliens tug-of-war strategy game.

It´s mindless & repetitive but good for a casual playthrough.

You simply do nothing than clicking for your various reinforcements to spawn in and watch them going to the right, till they break through the enemy lines and destroy their base.

Many upgradeable units.
Unfortunately you cannot play as the aliens :(

I only recommend it to play in between times, otherwise it gets really boring -_-

Just don´t pay more than a dollar for it or you´ll regret it ;)

Very short playtime !

100% Completion Review

A fairly simple, yet fun game. Reminds me of those flash games where you send waves of troops to each others base where troops battle in the middle. The game has a very decent upgrade system, although sometimes you may need to grind a few levels for upgrades to progress in the further levels/difficulties. There can be some strategy to the game; chosing the correct units, when to send to support one another and you have to defend your droids as they go out to harvest resources. The game is fairly short, but if you want to 100% it it's a great little time waster and challanging to beat on hardest difficulty.

The basic premise for this game was strong and rather enjoyable. The gameplay concept most certainly would have been a hit if not only for the game's rather poor production quality. While I didn't encounter any bugs, the sparse attention to detail detracts from the overall experience. The game starts with a very enjoyable mechanic, but ends up not expanding on it in terms of complexity and longevity. I completed the game in just over two hours on the hardest difficulty and found myself wishing there was more to be seen and done.

The game unfortunately provides only short lived thrills - thus I can only recommend you purchase it during a sale.

Low budget? Yes. Mediocre graphics? Yes. Endless hallways of relentless cliche aliens? Yes. Addictive, rewarding, and enjoyable gameplay experience? YES YES YES. After playing this game for a few hours, and realizing the paradox of having so much fun with such an unimpressive experience, I literally thought to myself, "I might actually be the biggest fan of this game that exists in the entire world."

Not a bad resource management RTS game. Pretty simple stuff, basically just choosing which type of troops to put in the battlefield at any time. Still well worth the few pence I paid for it.

I liked it overall. Not the most spectacular game in the world, but some mindless fun now and then. Easy game to get all achievements if you're into that sort of thing. I'd buy it again.

Not worth playing, you will hate it after a time and find it boring, aside from being too repetitive, there really isn't any sense of progression nor it seems that upgrading your units does actually anything.
