INVADED

Alien was, retrospectively, a much underrated game - tremendously difficult to get into and lacking spectacular graphics, it got criticised and reviewers missed the subtlety of the plot and the generation of real tension.

There is a chance to look at it afresh with the latest conversion of the game to the Amstrad. The program remains the same, although the packaging has shrunk to include a booklet that fits in a normal size cassette box.

The game requires strategy more than anything else. Your spaceship Nostromo has been invaded by an Alien, actually ‘invaded' is hardly the word. Pick your own term for ‘to spew viciously from John Hurt's stomach'. Somehow you have to get rid of it -either by forcing it out of the spaceship or by getting all the crew safely off the spaceship and setting it to auto destruct. complete with alien.

The game uses a series of menus through which you control the movements of the members of the crew and instruct them to pick up and use any useful objects that might be lying around. Occasionally crew members may report that grilles have beens removed. evidence that the nasty is crawling around nearby.

Alien also features that nebulous and usually fraudulent computer game concept, 'independent characters', this means, roughly that, sometimes crew members will not do as they are told, eg, if they are cowardly and think they're likely to get slurped.

Alien is really a very ingenious game and should particularly appeal to wargamers who won't be put off by the relatively primitive graphics.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
