Prepare yourself for the most horrendous invasion of aliens to ever terrorize the Earth. They're tearing apart our cities, mutating our people, and just plain unwelcome. It's time for a little planet cleaning, three of the toughest warriors in the galaxy are here to do it! Alien Storm features two-player simultaneous action that is extremely similar to Golden Axe. Pick from three characters, each with their own attacks.

People say:


I liked the all-out frenzy that Alien Storm inspires, and the game takes on new fun when played with a friend. The only thing disappointing about this title was the lack of real challenge needed to overcome most of the obstacle. To short when all you do is shoot, shoot, shoot!


It's good to see that Sega is beginning to make more two player games. This one is fun with two players but it unfortunately it is too easy that way. It's about right playing alone. Good graphics and control. Animations are well done and humorous at times.


It is not too hard to see glimpses of Golden Axe in this game, but there is enough originality to keep it separate. The graphics are cool and watching the animations of certain aliens is entertaining. The game is average in difficulty, but veteran gamers will walk right through it.


Obviously based on Golden Axe, Alien Storm has incredible graphics, game play exactly, and I mean exactly, like Golden Axe, and cool music sound tracks. If Golden Axe is your cup of tea, then Alien Storm is right up your alley! Be warned, though, it is Golden Axe in the future's clothes.

The classic coin-op of the same name is now on the 16-bit. Hostile aliens have taken possession of your planet and you can go in alone or with a friend to take out the creeps once and for all!

When the sirens wail, you'll know a storm is on the horizon, an Alien Storm! Take on the evil aliens as one of three different heroes, similar to the format of Golden Axe. Play alone or with a friend!

Each character has his/her/its own attack as well as a special attack. Don't stall, however, the aliens have a few surprises too! Fight to the alien spaceship and prepare to face off against the fearsome Mother Brain in a battle to the death! Of course, you must fight your way.
