Alien Breed: Tower Assault is the third entry into the Alien Breed sci-fi shooter series and was developed and published by Team17 Software in 1994 for the Amiga, Amiga CD32, and DOS.
After receiving a message from a research colony that is under some sort of siege you and your troop are sent blind on a rescue mission. Flying your fleet down to the facility you are blindsided by the defense turrets. Long story short, everybody dies but you. And I’m sorry, but I have always greatly enjoyed the games that use real people for the cutscenes. Anyway, now it’s up to you to survive long enough to figure out what is going on. The game is played from an overhead perspective and you have to blast your way through several indoor and outdoor settings. There are multiple items to gather including ammo, health, and keycards. You also have the ability to collect credits which you can spend at facility computers to purchase new weapons. In each level you must explore and fight off the alien scourge that has taken over the facility. The game is decently open as far as completing levels goes, as many of them have more than one exit.
When Tower Assault was released it garnered mostly positive reviews. I feel like the graphics on this one have held up pretty well. Not bad for a 16 year old. Yes, Tony Senghore was only 16 when the game was released. Fans of the series were definitely overjoyed for this new addition to the franchise. If you like gore and shooting things you are in the right place. Just don’t expect an easy walk in the park.
