Issue 1 (Nov 1985) (Amtix)   15th Jun 2016 04:08
Alien 8 is effectively the follow up to Knight Lore. Though it does not feature the curse of Sabreman or spells, it does have similar graphics (though altered to look like a spaceship where the action takes place} and the Filmation technique.
As the little Alien 8 type robot it is your mission to revive the cryonaughts before the spaceship you are in collides with a nearby planet. The cryonaughts are the last survivors of a highly advanced race on a voyage to another planet who have been frozen for the voyage. You must vent-ure round the ship, avoiding the mutants and other nasties that have ent-ered it, and revive the space travellers by placing the right type of cryogenic valves on the right plugs When all the plugs and valves have been put together, the game ends.
Movement around the ship and manipulation of objects is almost the same as that featured in Knight Lore. The graphics are hreath takingly stunning and again Ultimate have improved on the Spectrum original by presenting the rooms in two col-our combinations. The game is very good and extremely playable. Simil arities to Knight Lore aside, it is still worth buying as it is a bigger game and so presents a tough challenge to all arcade freaks even if it can be a bit frustrating at times.
