Four years after the movie brought Ripley, Newt, Hicks and "Game over, man! Game over!" to theaters, Aliens the game brought the franchise to arcades in an action-packed run-and-gun format. The game does a nice job of translating concepts such as the xenomorphs, smart guns, motion sensors and the famous exoskeleton cargo loader into relatively straightforward gameplay, though it takes significant liberties with the formula to provide enough easily-identifiable enemy types to keep the game interesting (including spider-like aliens, an armor-plated boss that rolls into a ball and bounces around, winged aliens and more). Aliens planted an excellent gameplay egg in arcades, which would burst forth four years later with Capcom's Alien vs. Predator.
