Alien Breed - Sci-Fi Retro Shooter (Android) & Remakes

Remember that awesome 1991 alien shooter on the Amiga? You know, Alien Breed, well it's back for a remake on your Android device! Alien Breed was a classic and many people know of this game, as it was the first in the Alien Breed series of science fiction shooter video games played with a top-down view, for one or two players. Although it was released in 1991 on the Amiga another version came out in 1993 for MS-DOS.
 Amiga Version

Android, iOS Version

Even though it strikes a similarity with the Alien films it contains many elements of other titles, which some claim to be close to Laser Squad, Paradroid and possibly Gauntlet. The goal of this game, is to kill the Alien's, find the lift to the next level occasionally setting the self destruct sequence to blow up the level above them. This game was so popular that since then we've had a good number of versions, ranging from the classic to the latest ALIEN BREED TRILOGY and yes even this Android version.
