Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew.

Great Game with Great Atmosphere
This game was a lot of fun to play. The game really captures the atmosphere of the franchise. The animations were really great, and it definitely is scary. I never got on board with this style of game, but the Alien theme really works here. There are 7 levels to play through, which seems a little short. However the somewhat randomness of the game adds a good amount of replay ability. I was never lucky (unlucky?) enough to have one of the characters die onscreen, so I can’t vouch for the visuals there, but the game is fun. There was a neat “plot twist” that occurs in one of the last few levels of the game, but it is completely abandoned in the next level. There is no mention of it. Like it never happened. That left me a bit confused, and the story a little bit disjointed. However, I only had 1 crew member left. Perhaps I needed more alive for them to discuss it? (Didn’t feel that way) Overall, in reality $5 isn’t that much for the amount of work that went into the game. It truly is an excellent game. The developer should be proud. The sound design is excellent. I would recommend it to any fan of the franchise.

Thank you so much for the kind words, we're really happy you love the game! We'll be sure to share your feedback about the story and adding more levels to the game with the rest of the team.
The game is beautiful the graphics look amazing they are like Alien isolation sound is beautiful the game gives me those alien isolation vibes and that’s good for a 4.99$ game but if it’s not going to get modes or anything new to the game to keep you playing it more more it won’t be worth it but in the end it’s an amazing game great job you guys can’t wait to see what’s next for the alien games and hope to see something like this again but a horror shooter that would be awesome. I have some ideas you guys can add to the game to bring more attention to the game add an extreme mode where there are more aliens to watch out for. A mode to play as Ripley moving around the ship trying to get the new playable areas to help other survivors out like isolation but with no weapons only your light.
The game to me is a 9/10 it has potential with the sound voice acting atmosphere but the game needs more content to get me into the game more and add a little blood to it. I still will be playing the game since it’s fun as hell
Thanks you for taking the time to read my review about my experience with the game hope you guys enjoy the game as I did.

Better than my first pessimistic expectations
The game is actually pretty tight. Creepy and tense atmosphere, decent simple controls, and a cool story. At first I thought that they were going to go down the usual mobile game Freemium route but the flat 5.00 dollar price is a welcome relief.
There’s one big problem that I noticed while playing that allows the gameplay to become an almost trivial affair though. The alien AI is surprisingly easy to cheese with the doors. If you can cut it off at a door and reopen it when it wanders off to find an alternate route then it will try to go to the door again. You can catch it in a loop by constantly opening and closing the same door and effectively contain it to a single room with a motion tracker most of the time with this method. This makes surviving the game with all survivors relatively easy and can kill the mood dramatically.
But still, very cool concept game with some Five Nights at Freddy’s style gameplay and good graphics and atmosphere. Not perfect but a solid alien experience especially for a mobile game.
