Based on Ridley Scott's 1979 film, Alien is a genuinely tense and thrilling experience set on board the spacecraft Nostromo. It begins with the crew scattered about the decks and the Alien somewhere on board. Your aim is to activate the ship's self-destruct mechanism and then guide the crew to the escape shuttle, leaving the Alien to perish aboard the mothership. Alternatively - and more dangerously - you can attempt to lure the Alien into the airlock and blow him out into space. This may all sound fairly straight forward, but there are problems-a-plenty to overcome before you are home and dry. Keeping the crew alive is the first challenge. The Alien will appear in a room suddenly and attack crew members. There are weapons which will repel his attack briefly, but unless you can get an unprotected member out of a room in time, they are doomed. As well as weapons, there is a movement detector which will indicate if the creature is in a neighbouring room. As casualties mount, the surviving members will begin to panic, dropping objects and refusing to co-operate. To make matters worse, the troublesome Alien will start fires in the engine room which need to be extinguished quickly to prevent the ship from exploding prematurely. Even if you manage to get everyone aboard the shuttle, it will not launch unless you have captured Jones the cat and he is onboard with you. Strange as it sounds for a computer game, it is full chock of shocks and thrills, perfectly reflecting the dark menace of the film.
