This version of Alien Hominid has been built specifically for consoles and it shows! There are 16 hot levels, complete with mini-bosses and main-bosses. The creators have brought back all your old favorites from the original and thrown in tons more. This game is overflowing with enemies, and they come armed to the teeth! Have no fear, they’ve taken the alien’s arsenal up a notch! You now have seven power-up weapons, which also upgrade your grenades. There is also a charge shot so you can hold down your button and unleash a giant ball of destruction. You can dig into the ground for defensive measures, then reach up and pull your enemies under. Enemy riding and head biting is still intact, but you can now also flip over an enemy and carry him, or throw him in eight directions!
If that isn’t enough, Alien Hominid also has an awesome soundtrack, with original music for every level. They’ve added a bunch of mini-games, including over 200 levels of 1-4 player “PDA Games”. These are single-screen platformers where the goal is to clear the enemies, avoid the traps and get to the exit. It isn’t as easy as it sounds! If the 200+ levels aren’t enough for you, the level editor allows you to build your own and save them to a memory card. You can take your levels to friends’ houses and watch them squirm!
