ALIEN 2 

ALIEN 2  (エイリアンシンドローム, Eirian Shindorōmu) is a run and gun video game developed by Sega and released in arcades in 1987.

Gameplay

Two players control two soldiers, named Ricky and Mary, who fight their way through large eight-way scrolling levels while rescuing their comrades who are being held by aliens. After they have rescued a certain number of hostages, the exit opens and they can pass through it in order to fight the end-of-level guardian. If this monstrosity is defeated, they are then able to move onto the next stage. Alien Syndrome features two player simultaneous gameplay and pickups which assist the player, including better weapons and maps of the current level.

Ports

In 1988, the game was ported to the Master SystemMSXAmigaAtari STAmstrad CPCCommodore 64, and Famicom/Nintendo Entertainment System (published by Tengen without a Nintendo license). Later, the game was ported to the ZX Spectrum (1989), Game Gear (1992), and X68000 (1992).

Reception

In Japan, Game Machine listed Alien Syndrome on their May 15, 1987 issue as being the third most-successful table arcade unit of the month.[1] The original arcade version of the game was reviewed in the July 1987 issue of Computer and Video Games, where Clare Edgeley described it as “one of the most gripping games” she “played in months”, praising the Aliens-like horror atmosphere, chilling sounds, special effects, graphics and gameplay. She stated it was “the first time the atmosphere and sheer addictiveness of a shoot ’em up has transported me to another planet” and concluded that it “is fantastic”.[2]

The Master System version of the game was reviewed in Console XS magazine, giving it an 85% score.[3] It was reviewed in 1989 in Dragon, getting two out of five stars.[4]
