Alien Assault is a fast-paced and easy to pick up top-down shooter with retro graphics and music. Players control the galactic space vessel AA-128, returning home from a scout mission when it suddenly encounters an entire alien fleet.

Four keys are used for movement and a single key to shoot. Starting with three additional lives, players are confronted with waves of enemies that need to be taken out before taking on a difficult boss. Only a single weapon is available, but by defeating a boss a one-time power-up is provided that enhances the firing rate, damage rate and radius. Sometimes the power-up provides a shield as well. When all lives are gone, the game is over.
