Description

On planet Rexus, located on the far edge of the galaxy a distress call has been sent out. When an Allied Forces freighter arrives to investigate they find that everyone on the planet is dead or has left and the full content of the distress call is a warning to stay away from the planet. Unfortunately it's too late for the Allied Forces investigators, as a large force of alien creatures is spotted incoming on the radar. The only hope is to man the few remaining turret weapons left behind on the planet and destroy all waves of the attack.

Alien Blast: The Encounter is a first person stationary shooter similar to Made By Kiddies' previous title, Air Raid. On any given level, the player mans one of the defensive turrets, with a 360 degree view of the area and must blast alien creatures as they appear on the radar. Aliens can come by both land and by air. A friendly spaceship named the UMBK will sometimes arrive to drop power-ups on the battlefield including shield restores, ammo replenishing and new weapons.
