    Alien hominid is one of those unique fresh experiences you can only get from games such as katamari damacy or cubivore. alien hominid is quick, fun, and REALLY hard. nostalgia gamers will appreciate the older more fashioned 2d approach and newer games will be frustrated with its extreme difficulty. but overall, however old you are you will see the quirkiness and fun and unique graphicAlien hominid is one of those unique fresh experiences you can only get from games such as katamari damacy or cubivore. alien hominid is quick, fun, and REALLY hard. nostalgia gamers will appreciate the older more fashioned 2d approach and newer games will be frustrated with its extreme difficulty. but overall, however old you are you will see the quirkiness and fun and unique graphic style that alien hominid delivers.

  1. While its gameplay design may appear to be derivative, there truly isn't anything else quite like Alien Hominid on consoles today.
  2. Considering Alien Hominid's humble beginnings as a web-based flash game, the game we get here is as good or better than most side-scrolling shoot "em ups in recent memory.
  3. A very unique game. The minute your space ship lands in the city, Alien Hominid is non-stop booger-nosed funk action from top to bottom.
