Game Description

As they are propelled through the infinite depths of space, Ripley, Newt and Hicks hypersleep within their cryotubes, unaware that, by the insensitive hand of fate, their long journey is about to be prematurely interrupted.  Also unknown to the hyper-sleeping Ridley, is the fact that an unusal malfunction, the ship SULACO ejects the EEV containing the cryotubes.

As the SULACO plummets helplessly through space, the EEV is hurled out of its hold and crashes on an isolated section of the mining planet and "penal colony", FIORINA 161.  This is a place so dark, so dreary, so deep in space that it has all but been forgotten by civilization.  For its inhabitants, salvation seems hopeless.

Upon impact, EEV is seriously damaged and the cryotubes holding Newt and Hicks are shattered, leaving them dead.  Bishop, the android, is shattered and reduced to negative capability, while Ripley is left unconscious, but alive.

The planet FIORINA 161 is inhabited by hard-core individuals who are convicts serving time in this maximum security facility.  These outcasts were left on the planet as a maintenance crew.  They are joined in this "other-worldly existence" by a medical officer and two supervisors.  The men are thieves, rapist, murderers...the worst of the worst.

Clemens, the medical officer, is able to rescue Ripley and "bring her back to life."  Suspecting that the aliens have followed her to FIORINA 161, Ripley attempts to prove her worst fears are true.  She knows that "The Company," the private corporation that financed her many space explorations, considers the aliens to be an important species and has ordered them not to be harmed.  The "Company" has millions of dollars invested in the "Alien Retrieval Project" which would bring this strain of hideous killing machines back to earth to be used for world domination.

Ripley is aware of their devious plan and knows that they must be stopped.

Ripley's worst fears have nowbecome true.  She has indeed brought the aliens to FIORINA 161 and they are now growing in number and will eventually find a way to leave this barren planet and make their way to a more populated...more civilized world.  Earth.

Ripley now takes on her most important assignment.  She must rescue the aliens' captives, and find and destroy the aliens themselves.

That thumping...is your heartbeat...as you get set to confront the Alien terror.
