Alien Syndrome Arcade Cabinet

Anyone who has visited the museum will recognise the cab, as it stands in the front foyet, and every minute the intro sequence starts with a sampled roar of an alien.

The game is a top down maze shooter, and can be played with 2 players simultaneously, the players must run around the screens, rescuing other humans and clearing the levels of slug like aliens, before facing off against a very hard to kill series of end of level bosses.


Manufacturer: Sega
Date: 1987
