Alien Trilogy is a first-person shooter based on the first three Alien movies. You control Lt. Ripley in three sections, each based on one film: The colony complex on LV426 (from Aliens), the prison planet (from Alien³) and the derelict spaceship (from Alien). Each section consists of about 10 missions. In every mission, certain goals must be accomplished to continue. These include killing a certain number of enemies, finding items or activating switches. Enemies include everything the Alien life cycle provides: facehuggers, chestbursters, warrior aliens, dog aliens (from Alien³) and Alien queens, one of which waits in the final mission of every section. In addition to the Aliens, you also have to fight employees of the Company, who have either been infected by the Aliens and are beyond saving or who actively want to obstruct your mission.

Weapons to be used include pistol, shotgun, pulse rifle, flame thrower and smart gun. Ammunition, health upgrades and other useful items are scattered throughout the levels. Hidden areas may be uncovered by using explosives like grenades and seismic charges. An auto mapping system helps in not getting lost, night goggles and shoulder lamps (running on battery power) allow you to see in the dark and the motion tracker tells you where your enemies are – but only if they are moving.

  1. This game scared the crap out of me when I was 7years old and playing this! I’m now 29 and still remember the main cheat code lol

  2. Update as new information has come to light:

    Acclaims Greg Wright was the person telling the press Alien Trilogy was headed to the Sega 32X, Acclaim later admitting that only the Saturn,PlayStation and PC had the power to do the game they wanted.

    3DO Alien Trilogy was only something they at 1 stage considered, they never confirmed it was coming,the press just assumed it was.

    Apparently Acclaim’s marketing department were announcing formats and release dates for the game,whilst the motion capture and SGI workstation rendered graphics were being shown off, but the basic gameplay design had still to be finalised at this point.
