DescriptionThis open-source, freeware remake of Ultimate's classic isometric title adds complete new sets of graphics, music and sounds, while preserving the original gameplay intact. As before, the player controls a small maintenance robot traveling the many maze-like rooms of a spaceship, whose main task is to activate the cryogenic chambers that give life support for the crew. The rooms are filled with dangerous creatures and hazardous environments that must be avoided. The robot must find all the valves, each with a singular shape and color, and drop them on their corresponding energy cells. After activating at least one chamber, the game gives the option to upload the score to an online high-score table.

They made a piece of art that's now a part of videogame's history, and we just hope they don't mind we making this small homage to their work :), José Ramón Díaz (Muffy), who did a great job helping us with the map, Shawn Hargreaves, and all the other Allegro developers, the best game programming library I know, Everybody at Firelight Technologies, because of FMOD Ex, the music playing library Alien 8 uses, Peter Hull, who kindly compiled the Mac port, Tomaz Kak, Richard Jordan, Neil Walker, for the online scoring system, And all the other folks from Retrospec!
