Alien Menace is back in the store!

That's one of the games I'm always complaining about dissapearing. Well the developer/publisher Blackhelios is back!

I recommend this game wholehardedly for anyone who's into deck-building/CCGs/ board-card game hybrids. It's only single player. You play a space Marine, the computer plays as aliens. You get a random set of cards...oh hell, if your into the type of game I'm talking about, just buy it. It has a cool FPS feel to it; a shaky camera following you from room to room, looking side to side.

Grabbed it. Looks weird but I'm willing to give it a try

What the? "Install" instead of "$$$"?

I had actually bought this before? No memories of having actually played it.

Downloading again...

Do it. It's based on an actual card game which I've never played, but the developer did a great job giving it the atmosphere of a FPS or, better yet, survival horror game. Just try to save the "reduce room size" effect card, if you get one, for the last room.

Got wiped out at the portal when the Alien played a titan (12) and my highest card was a (9) with no modifier cards left.

I've been awake for like two days...pm me tomorrow and I'll write it a tutorial (though the first time you play, the game explains itself) and tactics/strategy mini-guide. I win over 50% of the time on extreme, depending on my luck.

BTW, don't be afraid to flee a room if you know you'll run very low on cards and if the aliens don't have many coins.

Can you post your Alien Menace mini guide here?
