Genre Action

Alien 3 is a side-scrolling action-adventure game released for the Sega Game Gear in 1993. It is based on the 1992 film of the same name, and was developed by Probe Entertainment. The game follows Lt. Ellen Ripley as she attempts to escape from the prison planet Fiorina 161 where she has been stranded after her escape pod crash landed there.

The objective of Alien 3 is to make it through each of the levels while avoiding or destroying enemies and obstacles. The player controls Ripley with an 8-way joystick, allowing her to move left and right, jump, crouch and fire weapons. Weapons can be found throughout the levels or purchased from vending machines using coins collected from defeated enemies or found in hidden areas. There are also power-ups hidden in secret rooms that increase health, ammo capacity, speed, etc.

The levels themselves are quite varied, ranging from outdoor areas full of hostile aliens to indoor locations filled with hazardous machinery and security systems to avoid or destroy. As you progress through the game you will encounter various bosses that must be defeated before proceeding further into the level. These bosses include giant aliens, robotic sentinels and even a giant Queen alien at the end of level 5 which must be destroyed before Ripley can escape Fiorina 161 alive.

In addition to its single player mode, Alien 3 also features a two player cooperative mode where both players control separate characters who work together to complete objectives and defeat enemies. This mode allows for some interesting team strategies which can make certain levels easier than if just one character were playing alone.

Overall Alien 3 is an enjoyable experience for fans of both the movie and classic side-scrolling action games alike. The graphics are detailed and vibrant, making full use of the Game Gear’s color palette while still keeping a distinct “Alien” feel throughout each level design and enemy type encountered along your journey off Fiorina 161. The music is catchy enough too – although it does repeat itself often – so overall this game provides hours of fun for those seeking a challenging yet rewarding adventure on their Sega Game Gear system!
