The Jaguar version of Alien Vs Predator is completely different from the arcade and SNES games of the same name.

This version takes place entirely on a Colonial Marine Training base. A ship infested with aliens is found floating near the outer-space training facility. Of course, once the aliens get inside the base, they kill off nearly everyone. Meanwhile, the predators dock their ship on the training base as well. They see this as an opportunity to catch an alien queen, and bring honor to their clan.

So there are three scenarios in which to play: First, you can play as a marine. Your job is to find a way to self-destruct the base, and make your way to an escape pod before it blows. The second scenario allows you to play as an alien. Here, your job is to find and protect the queen from the marines and the predators. Finally, you can play as the predator. He must simply find and kill the alien queen.

The game is a first person shooter. The play field consists of the five levels of the training base, plus areas for the predator and alien ships. All the areas of the ship are inter-connected, giving the game a huge virtual environment. Depending on the scenario you choose, you will have to choose different strategies based on the capabilities of your character. For example, the marine will have to make use of his weapons and his ability to use the ship's computer terminals. The aliens, on the other hand, will have to make use of their great numbers and ability to cocoon their enemies. And finally the predator must fight with honor, and not over-use his invisibility capability.

Cancelled port

A Lynx port of AvP was actually planned, and came a far bit in development before ending up in Atari prototype heaven. The prototype has been dumped and released on the internet.


Atari contemplated doing a straight port of the SNES game Alien vs. Predator for the Jaguar, but changed direction after designers realized they did not have the legal rights to the Dark Horse comic series on which the SNES game was based.

Prototype version

An earlier prototype version of Alien Vs Predator was dumped and is available for download to play through freeware Jaguar emulators. This version has a different UI layout, different alien sprites and incomplete texture maps at some of the walls.
