Forgotten Classic- Alien Brigade on the Atari 7800

Michael Crisman writes, "Yes, we know, technically the entirety of the Atari 7800 library could be considered a forgotten classic thanks to the Nintendo Entertainment System juggernaut steamrolling Atari like a patch of wet asphalt in the US. But while Atari’s systems are known for a voluminous amount of shovel-ware, digging through the crap will occasionally yield a gem instead of a turd. Such is the case with 1990′s Alien Brigade, an on-rails lightgun shooter channeling both Operation Wolf and X-COM in what can best be described as “frickin’ amazing.” (Retro)
