A walkthrough of the ZX Spectrum game, Aliens. This is the UK version, by Electric Dreams. From the Mobile Tactical Operations Bay (MTOB), guide the six team members through the colony base to the Queens' chamber. Kill all the queens and remove the alien slime from the walls to stop them once and for all.
Some essential tips:
- Move quickly though the base. For example, you can press 4 then E, then select another character, to move four rooms to the east. Don't stop to shoot the aliens too often, as ammo is a precious resource and should be kept for the final encounter in the Queens' chamber (room 248). Also, the more aliens you shoot, the quicker the attack waves advance and the difficulty increases.
- Put a person in each of the Generating Room (174) and the Control Room (78). If the alien slime covers the entire walls in either of these rooms then the power goes out and the lights go off, making the game much more difficult. So keep people here to prevent this.
- Keep one person at the start (room 1). After cleansing the Queens' chamber you need to return to the start to complete the game. But if you have someone already there you can just switch to that person.
- Send the remaining three people to wipe out the Queen's chamber. You need a shed load of ammo to kill all the queens and clean the walls.
Not an easy game, even when using rollback in the emulator. Credit must be given to Xyphoe for his Amstrad walkthrough, which helped a great deal: https://youtu.be/uKoJXaCeyxI
From the recording originally sent to http://www.rzxarchive.co.uk/. Recorded using "rollback", a feature of the emulator which allows you to mark a point, which you can then roll back to later if you get into difficulty, and try again.
