Alien Syndrome

 Home > Browse Our Collection > Software > Amstrad CPC > Alien Syndrome

A port of the top-down shooter from SEGA.  Similar to the arcade game, the player is tasked with rescuing hostages from a ship about to explode.  Unlike the arcade game, this version is very slow and ugly.  The nature of the CPC hardware made scrolling difficult and this is evident in the jerky motion seen in the game.
