[edit] Features

  • Randomised monster stats
  • Monster memory system to automatically record the player's observations
  • Player-chosen difficulty settings. Level 0-6 are all winnable, level 7 probably is, levels 8 and 9 are murderous
  • Running mode and stamina for both players and aliens - As stamina decreases, the running speed decreases to the walking speed.
  • Standardised, reliable equipment for the player:
    • Pistol (low damage)
    • Assault rifle (medium damage)
    • Plasma cannon (high splash damage, don't get caught in the blast)
    • 6 different devices, which can set on a timer (0 to 9 seconds) and thrown:
      • Low explosives
      • High explosives
      • Hologram generators, to distract aliens with good vision
      • Noise generators, to distract/scare/deafen aliens with good hearing (and oneself)
      • Scent generators, to distract aliens with a sense of smell
      • Brain slices, to distract psychic aliens
  • No health regeneration, no health pickups, no ammunition pickups - you need to escape quickly or run out of resources
  • Radio receiver to guide the player to the objective
  • Tab to autotarget
  • Game style that varies with the alien species generated - lots of huge aliens means a game of running away and trying not to get surrounded, lots of small aliens means a shooting gallery, lots of medium-sized aliens could mean anything, and an even mix could mean big trouble
