Aliens in the Attic





Aliens in the Attic 


Playlogic is to thank for the video games based on the Aliens in the Attic movie. Players get to take on the role of various characters who have specific skills needed to get through certain sections of this hand held video game. Robots, and aliens are battled thanks to various weapons the player carries. Aliens in the Attic is essentially a side scrolling explorative shooter. The mix between shooting, and exploring is an interesting one. Aliens in the Attic is not as shooter heavy as the Contra series, however it has more enemies than most explorative based video games. The WMG has not seen the 20th Century Fox film, so this reviewer is not clear on how closely the Nintendo DS game follows the film.

The WMG is disappointed with the graphics in Aliens in the Attic on the Nintendo DS. There are a lot of levels that look the same (in the same area/world). The characters are small, and many of the enemies are repeated a lot. The shooting enemies action gets repetitive as well. Thankfully this part of Aliens in the Attic is pretty easy. Enemies explode into collectible items when they are shot enough times.

The music in Aliens in the Attic works for the WMG. It is pleasant enough to listen to. There are some areas the WMG feels are lacking. Shooting things like platforms could have had a sound that alerted the player to wasting shots. The characters in Aliens in the Attic are not always supportive or loving in this reviewers opinion. This would fall under mild attitudes.

Aliens in the Attic contains twenty-five levels in five different worlds. There are some customization to the different weapons. Aliens in the Attic could have contained a lot more in the extras department. There is little reason to replay this Nintendo DS game after beating it.

The gameplay found within Aliens in the Attic is the biggest issue the WMG has with this game. The gameplay gets very repetitive, and quite honestly boring. Go a little ways, shoot the enemies until they explode, and move to the next one (or group). This process is repeated. There are some areas where character swapping is needed to get through. Swap back to the best shooter, and continue. Aliens in the Attic felt like a chore to this reviewer.

Aliens in the Attic teaches get them before they get you. There is also a minor lesson in using the right tools to defeat the bosses. This hand held video game did not impress this reviewer. It was a chore to review this Nintendo DS game.
