You are the last surviving member of a UNMC rescue party. Your whole squad murdered by hostile alien life forms. Surrounded, they are attacking you from all sides. The only option is to fight, take as many of them with you as you can.

Turn the marine with the on screen controls, the accelerometer or the compass [3GS only] to get an alien in your sights. Wait for the scanner to lock on, press shoot and boom! No more alien…

Your shotgun shells are your life, run out and you won't survive the next close encounter. When an alien gets too close you use up one shell defending yourself. Every 500 points you get an extra shell, if you can survive that long…

Alien Horde is a frantic arcade shooter. The aim, kill as many aliens as you can before they kill you. Every time you kill an alien the rest get smarter, quicker and more cunning making the game progressively harder as the assault goes on. Compare your scores with our online database to see if you have what it takes to become the best of the best.

You can play in both portrait and landscape mode, including being able to switch between the two modes in game. Alien Horde utilizes the full capabilities of your hardware to bring a unique set of controls for your iPhone or iPod Touch. If you have a compass the game will let you simulate the real world actions of the Alien Horde motion sensor, although we recommend this is used only for fun or in combination with the on screen controls. We don't want you getting dizzy playing the game!

You can also use the accelerometer to play the game, tilting the device left or right to move your marine and aim at the hostiles. Finally there are on screen buttons in both portrait and landscape mode which allow you to turn, shoot, mute and pause the game.

Quit the game and Alien Horde will save your progress allowing you to pick up the fight exactly where you left off.

Good luck soldier, you'll need it!

Really Neat Alien Game

This game is a nice frantic arcade shooter. You use the scanner to locate the aliens and then try to kill as many aliens as possible before they can kill you. The look like blips on the radar, are are coming for you! The aliens get smarter and smarter as you kill them, making them faster and more efficient which makes the game harder as their attack goes on.

You turn around using the on screen controls, the accelerometer, or the compass [AR with 3GS only] to get an aliens in front of you. Once the scanner locks on to them, you can press the shoot button to kill the aliens.

You also have a shotgun with a limited amount of shotgun shells that represent your life, if you run out, you won't survive the next close encounter with an alien. You will automatically shoot an alien with the shotgun if it get too close to you, and then you will also lose a shell. For every 500 points, you get an extra shotgun shell, but only if you can survive for long enough…

Compare your scores online with the leaderboards and try to become the best of the best of the best!

I also like that the game lets you play in both portrait and landscape modes with the ability to switch between the two modes while playing and that when you quit the game, it will save your progress so you can resume playing right where you stopped.

4/5 stars

Great First Effort

Nice interface and interaction, gameplay is repetitive but fun, sound could use some improvement and variety. Ran across a bug where aliens stopped coming. Tried restarting, changing settings, but they just flat out stopped coming (have to forsake my high score). Otherwise, a fun little diversion.

5/5 stars
