Rules:
- The round starts now (Sunday, June 29) and will end at 11:59pm UK time on Saturday, July 19.
- Score as many points as possible.
- Post screenshots of your score in this thread, and write your score underneath. You can enter as many times as you like within the round's time frame.
- No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. If you suspect a contestant of cheating then don't post it in public (anyone who does so will have their posts edited or deleted) - please PM either me or Biscuit and we will investigate it. If we find anyone guilty of cheating then they will be banned for the entire season.

He, he. In this game it is important to think two steps ahead. You can not let yourself be out of ammo and out of keys. Plan your route wisely, know you exit. This game is not so easy. It has only six levels.

Well it's better than Turrican, if nothing else

(Although in fairness, I'd say jumping out in front of a bus is more enjoyable than Turrican)

I strongly disagree. The Turrican-series ist the pinnacle of Amiga gaming for me. But to each his own...

Alien Breed and Turrican are totally different games and I don't think it is wise to compare them. Alien Breed has its own atmosphere and suspense while Turrican is a pure bunch of action. Both I like but in Alien Breed I have to use my brain a lot more and that is why I prefer it. In Alien Breed there is no point in shooting furiously because pretty fast you will run out of ammo or you shoot at emergency lock and close yourself in a no-way-out chamber. Like in a real life or at the set of another Alien movie. In Turrican there is more fun in shooting everything what moves and don't get killed. Both are good but for me only one is better

Personally I like sequels to Alien Breed (AB2) less than original. They lack of this atmosphere and are slowly becoming a furious shoot'em up where you don't mind your ammo supplies or you're not afraid of being closed in seperated area...
