stuck on NOVA "auxiliary drives" room

Hi, I am brand-spanking new to FPS games, but was told I HAD to pick up NOVA on my iPod touch. Anyways, I fear this question may be a little simple, but I have reached the "auxiliary drives" room, and am able to beat the first two waves of aliens (the little green ankle-biters, and the silverish guys), but when the big red guys start to appear I die every time! Is there a way to defend myself against their weapons, or am I just missing something.


PS - for the record, I am using the machine gun, but just can't seem to kill them before they kill me.

Use the shotgun and hide under the stairs.

Just constantly run round. Whenever you're low on health, just keep moving. In NOVA especially, if you're moving enemies' shots will always miss.

perfect! This worked like a charm! Thanks so much for all your help (I was able to sort use a combo of everyone's advice to figure it out!).
