Description

Alien Crush Returns is a modern-day update to the classic TurboGrafx-16 title Alien Crush. It is a downloadable WiiWare-exclusive title, and considered the fourth title in the Crush Pinball series.

It contains three tables or stages with 3-D polygonal graphics and online leaderboards. The ability to "tilt" the table remains, and is accomplished through motion control. Operating the paddles is done with simple button presses on the Wii Remote or Nunchuck.

The game features Action Balls, which are special abilities that can be applied to the ball during gameplay. For instance, one action will add brief extra speed to the ball that allows it to bounce and rebound further, and crash through some obstacles off which the ball would normally just bounce. The actions must be earned, and there is a draw-down time between uses, as multiple uses may be saved up. Alien Crush Returns also saves high scores for one player, and features a story mode about a struggle between aliens and space marines, and occasional boss battles.
