Group Description

A series of science-fiction action games developed by Team17 Software Limited.

The first installments (Alien Breed, Alien Breed II and Alien Breed: Tower Assault) are top-down shooters where the players navigates maze-like space stations. With Alien Breed 3D and Alien Breed 3D II the series changed its perspective and was introduced as Amiga-exclusive first person shooters influenced by DOOM.

Alien Breed (Special Edition 92) is an enhanced re-release of the first game. The series also inspired the fangame Alien Breed Obliteration which uses the gameplay mechanics of the top-down games.
