Alien is a video game for the Atari 2600 published by 20th Century Fox in 1982. Based on the 1979 film, Alien is a maze game, that resembles Pac-Man far more than it does anything from the film.
It was the first officially licensed game of the Alien film series.
The player controls a member of the human crew pursued by three aliens in the hallways of a ship. The goal is to destroy the alien eggs laid in the hallways (like the dots in Pac-Man).
The player is armed with a flamethrower which can temporarily immobilize the aliens. Additionally, "pulsars" (like the power pills in Pac-Man) occasionally appear which turn the tables, allowing the human to overpower the aliens.
