What's cool about it:

  • Both games can be finished in cooperative mode - two guns are better than one
  • The second part is entirely non-linear with more than 250 ways to finish it


The year is 2191 and the galaxy stands on the brink of war. Only the Interplanetary Corps maintain an uneasy peace. The IPCC Miraculous was heading back for Federation HQ after six months on routine patrol around the Intex Network. Then came the orders to check out a remote Intergalactic Space Research Centre which had failed to transmit on any of the Federation wavebands. ISRC-4 was situated near the red-giant Gianor and was the last place anyone on the Miraculous wanted to go.

Alien Breed features a classic arcade shooter gameplay with hordes of aliens that are trying to kill you and a huge arsenal of weapons to defend yourself.In Alien Breed: Tower Assault levels are connected in multiple ways and there is no predefined path so you can freely chose where to go next, making each pass a unique experience. In addition, both titles can be played in cooperative mode adding further to the already impressive re-playability value of these games.

Minimum system requirements: Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7, 1.8 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM (1 GB recommended), 3D graphics card compatible with DirectX 7 (compatible with DirectX 9 recommended), 2GB HDD, Mouse, Keyboard.

Not to be confused!

This is information rather than a review.
Team 17 has released a trilogy of "resurrected" Alien Breed games: "Alien Breed: Impact", "Alien Breed 2: Assault", and "Alien Breed 3: Descent". These are NOT the same games that GOG is selling here. These two games are the ancestors of the modern trilogy (which happens to be quite nice, by the way).

The Big One

Alien Breed is a true classic of top-down shooters and a legend for all Amiga players. It's really aged nowadays, but still fun. The second one - Alien Breed 2 which isn't included in the package is immensly better providing character selection and bigger weapon selection as well as a longer scenario, but despite that Alien Breed is still quite enjoyable on its own.
While Towerread more Assault is one of the longest top-down shooters providing multiple paths and almost a 5-hour playthrough time. The selection of weapons is rather large, nothing that awe-inspiring though, but that's not what is important - the most important thing is the gameplay which is fantastic - long winding corridors, searching for keys narrowly escaping the countdown timer when the floor detonates... the constant action will keep the player pumped up on adrenaline.
Tower assault also enchances the storyline aspect of the game - logs in form of smartcards and INTEX terminals provide invaluable information on what was going in the towers before and during the assault.
The game also features hot-seat coop play and getting a friend to help along the way is advised as even though the credits will have to be split, the other teammate can help in keeping your back clear of aliens.
This game pack is a definate MUST-GET for all Amiga fans.

The Golden Era of Team17

Posted on 2012-01-10 08:28:37 byxbeanx3000's avatarxbeanx3000:

Before Team17's modern/current era of making average games there was an earlier era of many gems such as the early Worms games and this one, Alien Breed. With it you get fantastic 2D visuals and a great artstyle inspired by Aliens, and to play is simply a joy being viewed from a topdown angle and is a shooter. I've been waiting for GOG to sign Team17 for ages and this is just brilliant!
