Let's Compare: Alien Syndrome

Seen as I just bought the Wii version of this I thought it would be cool to look at the original versions:



And the Atari ST version that is missing from this video for some reason:

Had this on the C64, never got very far, as was bloody hard. (mind you, finding same of the game now i've unlocked it on PS3 Sega MD collection!).

C64 version looks to be the best 8 Bit Micro version, Speccy having usual 'splitty-splat' sound fx.

Game Gear version? sprites look way too big, what's on there?.

Nes:ok...but 8 Bit console wise, MS version wins easily.

Anyone recal the clone by Special FX on 8/16 Bit's, 'Gutz'? got average reviews, but i found it enjoyable enough.

I've never played this game.  That ST version looks pretty good! 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
