Alien Soldier

Alien Soldier
Alien Soldier is a side-scrolling run and gun video game developed by Treasure for the Sega Mega Drive. The game was published by Sega in Japan and Europe in 1995, and was temporarily available in North America via the Sega Channel cable service.
Much of the gameplay in Alien Soldier is borrowed from Treasure’s earlier Mega Drive release, Gunstar Heroes, but rather focuses almost entirely on boss fights. The levels themselves are notably short and easy, serving as downtime between the more difficult boss battles. Released near the the Mega Drive’s lifespan, Alien Soldier pushed the system to its technical limits. Treasure describes the game’s technical prowess with a catchphrase on the title screen, “VISUALSHOCK! SPEEDSHOCK! SOUNDSHOCK! NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 HEART ON FIRE!”, referencing the Mega Drive’s core Motorola 68000 CPU.
Nowadays, it is nearly impossible to obtain a decent physical copy of the game, with cheesy bootlegs selling for over $200 on eBay, and the original printing fetching nearly $500. However here at old School Games we believe in getting the best value for your dollar, so our quality repros are still the standard price of $40.
