This is the best shooter ever!
Everything, man! Sounds, Graphics, game, PDA.... EVERYTHING!
Didn't? Are you kidding?
The Bottom Line
It’s true! The best 2D Shooter on the PS2 was made. And it’s mega-awesome on the Xbox. You see, if you went on Newgrounds, or searched ‘Alien Hominid’ on a search engine, you will know about this; Alien Hominid was original by a Flash game by Tom Fulp, and an artist called Dan. It was one of the best games on Newgrounds.
Until now, while over 9 million peoples’ views, Zoo Digital sat on the chair on this internet game. We thought that they liked the flash game, and they made it the best shooter known! In this game, it’s not just killing the FBI with weapons and using basic moves. No! First, there is more moves than the flash game – pulling enemies while digging, throwing grenades, holding enemies and throwing them, and charging up blasts for a bigger power-shot by the damage depending what weapon you have got.
If you fancy, you can dress up your hominids, and name/rename them to make a sentence together in 2-player mode. Example; P1’s name is ‘Eat your’ and P2’s name is ‘Pudding’ which makes altogether ‘Eat your Pudding’ which makes more than a sentence than name! But that’s not the point of making names. The point of making names is that you can find out the style of your hominid, or, if you have that football minigame, you can make the name of a football team or player in it and play! It is wonderful fun.
“Alien Hominid is the best 2D shooter in this planet”
Now you get weapons from the Fat Kid. My favourite is the Acid Blaster. So it’s easier than just getting ammo and weapons from killing enemies. You can ride cars, trucks, yetis, vans too. It’s easy, you can just press triangle when near one. If you liked the moves from the flash game, you can. There is the old freak attack bite, that can bite your enemies (OUCH!) you can still freak attack ride and hover down by shooting down while moving.
Now – as we said, 2-player mode. You can have a friend and play with them to make the game much easier. If you have Lego Star Wars, that 2-player team mode can be better, but only because its 3D. This is 2D, No classic. You can also play PDA Games that can allow you to go through over 200 black and white stages, controlling a stick man. You can run, jump, climb, sail, push, attack, suicide or die. The choice is yours.
Saying for ranking words, this game is the best shooter on the PS2. For the Xbox version, the online mode is rubbish (whatever!) and a bit down at controls. But that’s very, very little. So the game is still very, very good. If you enjoy the flash game you should buy this game. Stop playing online, spend only £25 pounds on a great game like this!
