Aliens versus Humans: The Onslaught

Some call it "X-com for iPad". We call it Aliens versus Humans.

Leisurerules Inc, the small indie developer that brought you Aliens versus Humans, has just reached beta for our second episode "The Onslaught".

In order to give you a taste of what will soon be out, here is our trailer:

Everyone that has bought Aliens versus Humans will get The Onslaught as a free update. This is the link to our original release:

Our beta is currently running on iPad. iPod/iPhone support will be in beta in a few weeks.

Aliens versus Humans: The Onslaught has been submitted to Apple and is waiting for review. It shouldn't be too long before it appears in the AppStore.

hey lightningfast. You cannot play the alien side yet although there is some talk about adding an asynch mode and either players play head to head aliens versus humans OR players play co-op humans against a common alien foe. Interested?

I have to agree! Found this game a little while ago and glad that I did! Would love more updates or a full blown sequel! It's as good of a xcom game as you can get on iPad right now!

How about a campaign from the aliens perspective? Give them a customizable mothership or bases on one of our nearby planets, and launch missions to attack military bases, abduct humans, and battle the forces you currently command in AvH

Since in the current game you have to wait for the aliens to attack, the alien geoscape could work like this : The aliens have strategists that will randomly offer "targets of opportunity". (Bassically the same thing as "Alien Activity")

Instead of having to come up with a whole equip tech tree for the aliens, maybe you could have a Pool of "Command Points" that you can spend on the different classes of aliens... Unless that's too different from the original game. In that case, I'd suggest using huminoid aliens like "Morpheous".



Btw.... Since the name of the organization is CLEARLY not "X-Com"......Is there currently a Official name?


But like I said....make the sequel UNDERWATER...OR MARS....XD



Also, did AvH get Heavy weapons platforms/tanks yet?
