Alien Breed Now Available For Playstation 3 And PS Vita

Ravi Sinha: ''Alien Breed, for those who don’t know, is a top down shooter released in 1001 to quite a bit of acclaim. Despite the claims of it being the “original survival-horror”, as a SHMUP, it was highly entertaining. Team17 Digital has announced that it’s now available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita via PSN for just £6.49/€7.99/$9.99' 9; (Alien Breed, PS Vita, PS3)

Yeah, I can imagine in the year 1001, this scared the holy hell out of people. /s

I couldn't find it on the store. I'll try a demo if there is one. I could use some more SHMUPs on my Vita.

The original amiga version should be standalone download for less than half the price.

I can buy Hydrophobia for less than 2€ for god sake!

1001? Did you mean 10/01? Or did you not proof read? Also I see the game on sale but not for the vita... or was this out back in 1001....is that BC or AD?

What a shame that the skill of proofreading has been replaced by spell check...

"hmm, no red words, my article must be ok, submit."

It's a cross-buy title, which is great for me and if you liked the original this doesn't dissapoint. However, the nostalgia only carries over into the first 5-6 levels then it gets really old really fast. Still, for a level every now and this it is kind of nice.

Don't be fooled by the picture in the article though. The 8 bucks do not include the (terrible) 3D-remake. They include only the classc version in 2 editions and with 3 level packs, each playable in classic and HD mode.
