This 1990 Aliens game by Konami has insanely colorful graphics, and simple but fun gameplay. In certain areas, this weirdly blond Ripley has a radar that shows the positions of snearky aliens that suddenly pop up from vents and grates to attack. The music consists of well-composed high energy FM tracks, certain themes seem to be inspired by soundtrack of The Terminator.

Whoa, colors

    Flipperkælderen on Nørrebro had a real Aliens cabinet. I completed it with Malu (in free play mode). I played as Hicks for the first time, which was a nice surprise.

  • I was listening for the music from this game, but the arcade was blasting the Doom soundtrack so loud, I couldn't hear anything.
