The game is the sequel to the original Alien Hominid HD game which was popular for its arcade-brawling and tongue-in-cheek alien theme. Here though the levels are vertical as well as horizontal so exploration and multi-directional shooting are the order of the day. Play is the same rushing around and shooting while avoiding enemy attacks.
You play with up to three friends, to abduct intel from your enemies, sabotage their plans and observe the oddities of human life. Along the way you'll need to take on big bosses and mutate into a variety of powerful Alien forms in order to take down the government Agents who are dead set on ruining your
The result is a game that expands on the original with more forgiving play (no more one-shot kill), and more customization both in the weapons and how you look. Add to this the four-player multiplayer where each person chooses their own difficulty setting and you have the perfect chaotic romp of a game for all ages. (While fans of the previous game can learn more about what happened to the original alien, where the agents came from, and why there is such an intense hunt to find them).
6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The difficulty levels offered in this game allow for a range of ages to engage with it. Younger children can experience the chaotic game with less worry of dying quickly, whereas older children and teens can explore the “Insane” difficulty level with lower health and a greater challenge of surviving to overcome.
