Alien Hominid

 

"They don't make 'em like they used to" is a phrase we hear bantered about all the time, but also occasionally in video gaming. Players fondly remember the "glory" years of 2D gaming, because that's what they grew up playing. Our fuzzy memories...

Overall, the game is quite a bit of fun. Alien Hominid offers up a serving of both what was great and frustrating about old-school gaming. This is likely to divide players, but me? I liked it.

Alien Hominid Review

 

Alien Hominid sports charm for a two-dimensional, side-scrolling shooter

Tired of recent trends in video games? Then you might like the smell of what Alien Hominid is cookin'.

Alien Hominid review

 

In a day where realistic graphics and deep gameplay rule the day, it's nice to see a company release a game that has neither. Alien Hominid is a game that, while deep for what it is, does not need to be deep if the player doesn't want it to be. A...

So far as replay value is concerned, beyond what I just said, there are some mini-games that can be played, although they aren't as engaging as the main game. The main game and at least some of the mini-games can be played multiplayer as well. Overall,...
