I played this game some years ago when it was distributed by Reflexive Arcade. A low-budget, low-tech top-down shooter, its nonetheless very fun, full of absolutely ENORMOUS hordes of enemies that virtually put Serious Sam to shame. The game and its various sequels and spinoffs do only one thing, and they do it well. Expand

    Well it isn't terrible. The graphics are below par (even if they are shooting (no pun intended) for a retro feel). The gameplay is enjoyableWell it isn't terrible. The graphics are below par (even if they are shooting (no pun intended) for a retro feel). The gameplay is enjoyable as an arcadey, play-for-short-intervals type of game. It's very similar to the other games in the series of which I have also played and completed most of: Alien Shooter 2, Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded, Alien Shooter: Revisited, Zombie Shooter, and a couple more. They are all very similar and I can't help but think are basically all the same game. In this one and the others you simply walk around with a top down view and collect more powerful weapons than the previous, upgrade them along with your armor, and gun down thousands of enemies in huge groups at a time. It's very enjoyable to me because I've always loved old retro shooters, and I'm a sucker for most top down games. However I wouldn't often recommend this to, well, anyone, so in the interest of a community, and not my personal thought, I was generous and gave it a 6. Only if it's on sale is it worth the 5 hours (AT MAX) of play time it gives you, it can be very repetitive and lack variety for most of the time, as a warning. I picked it up for around $2.49 on Steam I believe, so for $2.49 it was a good purchase, FOR ME. It's a pretty personalized opinion on games that'll effect if you like this one, so do some research and try to think of what the game's like before buying it, maybe look at some gameplay somewhere.

    Dated and completely unpolished...yet still simple fun. Play it for about 60 minutes at a time for a great adrenaline boost.

    Alien shooter is an arcade shooter in the 3/4 perspective. You can chose between a male or female character though the differences are minorAlien shooter is an arcade shooter in the 3/4 perspective. You can chose between a male or female character though the differences are minor as the game focuses on sending swarms after you. That means your going to stand in certain area's and lure enemies out to kill them. At first the game seams fair and easy though in the third level and beyond, it starts setting up cheap ambushes where you can easily die if you don't have the right guns equipped. The surprised ambushes feel cheap as they can surround you and shoot acid at you. It's an artificial way of making the game harder that dulls the experience. It gets worse as you go along where you need to buy the newest gun you can for every level to stand a fair chance. The buy system feels more like another obstacle rather then a tool. I became annoyed that I didn't want to play it anymore.

    Graphically, Alien shooter decent where things look like what they should be. It looks like a clear 1996 PS1 game with no blurry textures. Enemies are color pallet swaps to indicate their increased toughness. There is only two themes in the game that are forgettable and dull. Overall Alien shooter is annoying arcade shooter. Game can be cheep and add artificial obstacles. I don't recommend it.
