I had a chance to try out the GBA port of Alien Hominid, and I gotta say it reminded me very much of a flash game... one of those really early ones that rewarded well timed clicks with visceral gore and wanton destruction. Not to my taste, to be sure... but it was an interesting take on the action movie style game, if the alien was the protagonist.

You were pretty thorough in your review, but keep a close eye on your grammar. I noticed some misused "of", "off" and so on. Good to see plenty of detail, but for a game of this type I'd suggest cutting back on descriptions of generic action, which you cover early on, and focus on specific things that made this game stand out in your mind compared to others you've played like it.


I was always a grizzled old soul.

Nice. I remember this game--you liked it a little more than I did, but I agree that it's a fun, mindless diversion. I didn't know it came out on the GBA. It probably would be more suited to the handheld realm.

Uh oh. Has Retro flown the coop?

Nothing -- I thought you were MIA.

Oh no, I am very much around and like a good soldier watching from the sidelines ;)
