Alien Blitz is a top-down 3d arcade-shooter with loads of weapons, maps and monsters. You play a soldier resting on his native island, but it is quickly overrun by monsters from outer space and no outside help is available. You put on your armor, take your shotgun and go to find out what happened at the peril of your life.

★Achievements★
Try to get all achievements, find all the treasures, finish levels quickly (SpeedRun!) or try to beat the game with a 100% score everywhere. There are great rewards awaiting.

History

Being huge fans of old doom games we tried to mimic some of their features such as:
- Bullet hell (there's even more bullets thanks to the top-down view)
- Labyrinths with keys, doors and secrets
- Lots of monsters, monster infighting, predictable behavior

And we also added lots of new features like experience, money, upgrades,…
