Post subject:  FAQ: Previous Simulated Combat Drops.

This list of previously released Alien(s) related games was started by Willie Goldman.

If anyone has any additions, feel free to add them and we'll update the FAQ accordingly.
Where possible release date, platform (PC, game console, etc.) will be added. Emulator
information may be added if an older game is not readily available for purchase.

The player controls one of a party of four marines and explores the U.S.S. Sulaco as well as

Weyland-Yutani's involvement in Xenomorph development. If a marine falls in battle,
another in the party will take their place. The player loses if the entire party is wiped out.
Fallen characters can be replaced with any of fifteen displaced marines found throughout
the game, each with their own unique dialog.

Didnt see this one on the list; Anyone ever play "Aliens: A comic book adventure" (PC, 1995 Mindscape).

I found that one for like $3 at "Ollies" ("good stuff cheap" was their motto. Mostly it seemed like "cheap crap cheap"!)
The game crashed my PC any time I tried to play it. Curious if it even ever worked!

I think Willie has that on his big, seconday list of stuff to add.

I think I had a copy of that as well back in the day. As I recall I couldn't
get it to work either.
