New quick fix version available here:

Alien 8 V1.10

There was a problem where the game might lock-up if in-game music was switched on. Fixed in this new version linked above.

Alien 8 for the C64 is now available for download.

Many thanks to Mariusz for the Re-Complier, optimisations and help. Saul for the music and STE for the loading picture.

This completes of task of converting the Ultimate Filmation games to the C64.

The performance of the game is very good and in line with the other 8 bit versions released in the 80’s and faster than most of them.
Play it on a C128 in C64 mode and it’s the fastest of them all.

The "Lock Maximum Game Speed" option is defaulted to On when run on a C128 or accelerated machine as the game would run too fast otherwise.
This can be adjusted in the Front Ends config screen.

Features include:

- PAL and NTSC compatible.
- Super CPU and Turbo Chameleon compatible and speed enhanced.
- 25% speed increase if played on a C128 in C64 mode.
- Second fire button of the C64GS joystick can be used for pick/drop in directional mode.
- Complete conversion from the original Spectrum Z80 source code with all the features included, nothing is missing.
- In-Game music option.
- Keyboard and joystick control in the main game menu.
- Lots of cheats and configuration options that can be saved to disk from the front end.
- New SID Music by Saul Cross.
- New loading Picture by STE and also the original Spectrum loading picture in the front end. The loading picture stays visible on the screen while the game de-compresses.
- Disk, tape and cartridge versions included.
- 3 Versions included in the Disk archive: 1) The full Game including the front end. 2) Game only without front end, uses default settings only. 3) Game only without front end but loads any saved settings.
- Easyflash version with save game settings to cart option by Excess.

Up = Walk Up or Forward. Down = Walk Down or Pickup/Drop. Left = Walk or Turn Left. Right = Walk or Turn Right. Fire = Jump. Space or Second Fire = Pickup/Drop.

From the main game menu press 1 for Keyboard control or 2 for Joystick control. Press 3 or joystick up to toggle Directional control.
Press 4 or joystick down to toggle In-Game music. Press 0, space or joystick fire to Start a game.
