Gameplay

The game is based on the Alien movie. Many of the later 20th Century Fox offerings for the Atari 2600 were based on movie franchises. Despite this fact, the game itself resembles Pac-man far more than it does anything from the film. The player controls a member of the human crew pursued by three aliens in the hallways of a ship. The goal is to destroy the alien eggs laid in the hallways. The eggs correspond directly to the pellets in Pac-man. The player is armed with a flame-thrower which can temporarily immobilize the aliens. Additionally, "pulsars" occasionally appear which turn the tables, allowing the human to overpower the aliens. These are directly comparable to the "power pellets" used in pac-man. Alien is a 1979 science fiction–horror film directed by Ridley Scott, from an original story by Dan OBannon and Ronald Shusett. ... Pac-Man is an arcade game developed by Namco and licensed for distribution by Midway Games in 1979. ...
