Alien vs Predator Review(Atari Jaguar)





General

Alien vs Predator is a video game developed by Rebellion and published by Atari CorporationAtari Jaguar console in 1994. Based on the Alien vs. Predator franchise, the game allows the player to play as one of three characters: an Alien, a Predator, or human Private Lance Lewis of the Colonial Marines.


Gameplay

The game is a first-person shooter taking place on flat plane environments with two-dimensional sprites. Each player character has its own scenario, weapons, and abilities.When playing as the Alien, the player's objective is to rescue the Alien queen who is being held captive on a Predator spaceship. The player must fight numerous marines and Predators through various sublevels of the ship in order to reach the Queen. The Alien is unable to heal itself from injuries and instead "cocoons" marines. If the Alien dies--a cocooned marine will become a new Alien, allowing the player to continue from that location. The Alien is unable to use elevators and instead travels through air ducts in order to travel between levels of the ship.

As the Predator, the player's objective is to reach and kill the Alien queen in order to claim her skull. The Predator uses elevators to travel between levels of the ship, is able to carry medical kits which it uses to recover health, and can use a cloaking device to become invisible. Weapons and scoring when playing as the Predator are based on how the player chooses to kill enemies. Killing an enemy while invisible results in a loss of honor points, which can in turn result in losing many of the player's equipped weapons. Killing an enemy while visible, conversely, results in an increase in honor points which in turn allows access to more weapons.When playing as Private Lewis, the player's goal is to escape a military base which has been invaded by Aliens and Predators. At the start of the game, Lewis is in the base's brig and has no weapons, motion tracker, or security clearance. The player must find weapons and security cards in order to fend off enemies and access new levels of the base, activate the base's self-destruct mechanism, and escape in the escape pod. Lewis can use medical kits to recover health, but cannot carry them and must use them immediately. Available weapons include a shotgun, pulse rifle, flame thrower, and smart gun. As Lewis, the player can use both air ducts and elevators to access new levels of the base.
