Aliens™: Infestation

System: Nintendo DS Release date: 30/09/2011

In the cold of deep space, where no one can hear you scream, distress signals have been picked up coming from the starship Sulaco. As a crack Colonial Marine, it's your job to tool up and find out what happened to the ship's crew in this all-action title that brings the trigger-finger twitching thrill of classic 2D side-scrolling shooters bang up to date.

If you are a fan of the movie series, you're going to love this new take on the Aliens expanded universe, where you recruit and command a battalion of marines and take on the race of alien Xenomorphs hell-bent on wiping you out. Far from mindless blasting, you'll be gripped as the multi-layered story unfolds, the dialogue and plot changing depending on which of the troops you recruit to your squadron.

All the most iconic and atmospheric locations from the legendary cinematic series are brought to your Nintendo DS, as well as a vast array of weaponry and tools straight from the movies. Whether you're sweeping the starship Sulaco or touching down on the former colony of LV-426, the one thing you're not going to be is lonely - once your standard-issue movement detector starts bleeping you're going to have to strap yourself in, lock and load your pulse rifle and let the onslaught begin.

Among the maelstrom of battle there'll barely be time to catch your breath. You'll be embarking on stealth missions, old-fashioned fire fights and explorations of vast terrains as you delve deeper into the hive and come closer to the epic showdown with the alien queen.

Aliens™: Infestation for Nintendo DS promises tension, suspense and intense combat. So take a deep breath and head into a dark and hostile world that will get your pulse racing and keep your pulse rifle blasting.

  • Enter the Aliens expanded universe for a pulse-racing, action-packed adventure
  • Lovingly-crafted retro feel as the traditional side-scrolling shooter is given a dynamic new twist
  • Command a battalion of 20 Colonial Marines, each with their own character, dialogue, and stylish artwork from star comic artist Chris Bachalo
  • Varied action includes exploration, stealth missions and races against the clock to rescue your captive comrades
