Retro game of the week: Alien Breed (AMIGA/PC)

Alien Breed is a top-down sci-fi shooter influenced, heavily, and unofficially, by the Alien films. It was released in 1991 by Team17 for the Amiga and later in 1993 by MicroLeague for DOS. It quickly became a classic. Team17 then decided to release a special edition of the game before finishing the sequel. This interim release came a year later, in 1992. Alien Breed Obliteration is a remake based on the interim version, rewritten from scratch with subtle improvements, featuring 15 new levels. Your mission is still the same though: blast your way through the alien invasion. It even has a co-op mode, so two players can once again team up and share the keyboard. Good times.
