Have no fear, they’ve taken the alien’s arsenal up a notch! You now have seven power-up weapons, which also upgrade your grenades. There is also a charge shot so you can hold down your button and unleash a giant ball of destruction. Alien Hominid combines classic shooter action with 2D side-scrollers and great-looking, basic graphics for a seriously fun gaming experience. Enemy riding and head biting is still intact, but you can now also flip over an enemy and carry him, or throw him in eight directions!
