The Team17 Softography Says...
"In the depths of space a holocaust has occurred. Intelligent and hostile alien lifeforms have taken over the Military Reasearch Unit in the Planet Azarin 2E.

Featuring over 50 huge levels of Alien blasting with a non-linear game sequence - over 250 ways to complete the game. Also includes dark levels where you can only spot the Aliens by their blue eyes."

Dream17 says...
I spent some time reading the above over and over, and to me it just doesn't do the game justice. This game expands on the original in so many ways. Graphically the game is astounding and CD≥≤ users (as well as PC CD-ROM users, I'd assume) are treated to an FMV intro sequence which, quite frankly, is the Lad's 'Nads (although does include the acting talents of someone who would seem more at home teaching a PE class rather than briefing a team of soldiers). The game itself is stunningly beautiful - far more so than the previous outings - and the inclusion of simple little things such as Retreat Mode (which allows you to fire and walk backwards) and a more user-friendly INTEX Network Terminal interface make this game the definitive 2D Alien Breed title.

The Amiga and CD≥≤ versions of the game were huge. However the PC version (or, at the very least, the PC Floppy version) was a ridiculously small game and far too linear and seemed to be a step back. However the game was ported to the PC not by Team17 but infact, once again, by East Point Software, who by now had made a habit of cocking up Team 17's ports.

I have been playing this game for years and i think its the best game ever!!! not only can you retreat and cover behind yourself but you never know where the little monsters will come from next. i found that it was a bit hard a frist but once you get used to it, it becomes fun and easy (if you dont mind constant restarts that is lol)
