Alien Breed - Tower Assault - Amiga Screen


The final of the 2D Alien Breed games was by far the most ambitious of the series so far. It initally was conceived as a remixed version of Alien Breed 2, but as work progressed, the concept grew into a whole new game.

A huge 55 levels were combined into 'branched' gameplay that made the game less linear than most previous games of the genre. This lead to there being some theoretical 250 ways to complete the game.

The graphics were a combination of Alien Breed 2 graphics and new graphics. Other additions to Tower Assault, were the 'retreat mode' which enabled users to fire while backing away from the alien hordes, and the addition of torches in the dark levels, which immeasurably improved the navigability of the levels, which were more complex than in previous games of the series.

With an extremely compelling two player version, Alien Breed - Tower Assault was for many the finest game in the series.
