 Aliens Armageddon

Aliens Armageddon is a 2014 arcade game that was first revealed at IAAPA 2013 in November 2013 and was released to arcades in 2014. Aliens Armageddon is a ‘on-the-rails’ shooter where you play as a Colonial Marine and features four different chapters. The arcade game was re-released in 2017 for Alien Covenant with new cabinet artwork and lighting but the game was still the same.

Gameplay

The story begins on the research vessel Capella that has been infested with Xenomorphs. One of the crew members activated the ship’s self-destruct mechanism just before he was killed. Wreckage from the ship falls onto Earth along with Xenomorphs. You have to fight your way to an escape ship and leave Earth behind.

The game features a variety of different Xenomorphs. The standards are there like Facehuggers, Chestbursters and Warriors but you also have to battle Weyland-Yutani engineered creatures like flying Xenomorphs and a flying Queen.

Marines in the game use a modern AR-15-style weapon rather than the classic Pulse Rifle as this is what’s mounted on the 55″ game cabinets. You can find smaller 42″ game cabinets though that do feature mounted guns that resemble pulse rifles. Through scripted events, you can pickup grenades and other special weapons.

  1. I actually just found this game and pl ut 5.00 in credits in before I started, which was enough to last me until about 1/3 the way through chapter 3 of 4. It is one of the most fun and pretty fair arcade shooters ive played since house of the dead. Being an Aliebs themed game is a bonis, regardless of the inaccuarcies in the game. The comon enemy is a drone, based on the appearance of Colonial Marine’s “stalker” class. There are also flying (facehuggers?), giant chestbursters, regular sized chestbursters, some kind of king/crusher, flying warriors, some kind of 6 legged dog alien, a crusher alien that shoots guided spikes from its back, and every facehugger is a queen facehugger. I assume there is something new in chapter 4, and probably a queen boss, but i dont know. Weapons include pulse rifle, shotgun, smart gun, flamethrower, and grenades. Potentially one or two more.

    Its like fighting Kenner aliens, which was pretty cool.
