Alien Breed is a bit of a classic. At the start of the early '90s, it was the game that made Team17 a success and allowed the studio to go on and create the huge Worms series.

20 years later, it sure feels prehistoric, with level design that boils down to "here are some doors, corridors, and aliens - have fun!"

And yet we found ourselves warming to this special edition release, because it's the definitive way to play Alien Breed - instead of overhauling the game entirely Team17 has lovingly restored it so that modern audiences can see what the 16-bit generation got so excited about back in 1991.
