Alien Brigade





Alien Brigade 


I am so thankful we had the money to purchase the Atari Collection 1 which included Alien Brigade on the Atari 7800. I missed this game back in the day. Alien Brigade is a lot like Operation Wolf on the NES and in the Arcade. The screen moves on rails in Alien Brigade. We have a cursor on the screen that is where our gun will shoot. We can shoot bullets have throw grenades. Please note players have a limited number of grenades within Alien Brigade. More can be collected by shooting specific items that appear on the screen.

We must avoid shooting the human soldiers in Alien Brigade. The goal is to shoot the aliens and avoid hurting the humans. As you can expect there are instances in Alien Brigade where the aliens will use humans as a shield. This can be frustrating because players can only take so much damage as well. I found Alien Brigade to be challenging and at times frustrating. The gun cursor does not always move fast enough to deal with the threats.

Alien Brigade looks good for an Atari 7800 video game. Alien Brigade also sounds decent. I like some of the retro sounds within Alien Brigade. It is neat to see the Atari 7800 was powerful enough to handle a video game like Alien Brigade. I hope the Evercade continues to releases Atari 7800 titles so we can get a good feel for them now. The scrolling and animation in Alien Brigade are pretty good. Vehicles and characters come from all directions within Alien Brigade.

The issues families need to be aware of within Alien Brigade is blood, explosions, violence, and more. Alien Brigade is pretty harsh to the player for shooting civilians. You earn yourself a court martial. Alien Brigade tells you that your ignored your commanding officers orders. The thing is Alien Brigade never gave me any directions or orders at the beginning. So I broke rules the game never told me about in the first place.

If you are into shooters on rails then you might get into Alien Brigade. It takes some trial and error to realize who you must save and who you must shoot. Do not try and go off of color because the aliens and soldiers have very similiar colors. As a historical gamer I found Alien Brigade to be very interesting. There are things that could have been done better. For the price we paid Alien Brigade is worth a few minutes.
