Maybe it's a specific race of aliens called the Alians, from the planet Alia?

What I find surprising is that the people who write App Store descriptions like that apparently cannot find anyone who reads English to proof read it. It's the second most widely spoken language in the world! And it's not like it's a whole essay that they need proof reading, I'm sure they must have at least a casual acquaintance who can read and write English who would be willing proof read something short like that.

Ok! There's no English but its not too hard to figure out . Two push pads on the games title page- one plays the game, the other gives a basic tutorial which I visually figured out. The game controls work quite good. Aliens descend from above and you have to connect three or more same color blocks below each alien which shoots a missile at the aliens. If you fail to kill an alien they descend and destroy one of your turrets at the base of the playing field. When all of your turrets are destroyed its game over( correction: apparently not all turrets need to be destroyed for it to be game over!!). One interesting mechanic is if you need to move a square from anywhere on the playing field to make a match you can. It's an alright game and has GC. Considering its free its worth a try!
There's my amateur critique
