Take a wild guess at what a game called 'Alien Shooter' entails. You're right! In Alien Shooter, you shoot at aliens. The game takes place from an isometric perspective, and you control a man or a woman with the task of running around a variety of facilities, turning on the power, and blasting aliens with a handful of different weapons. You run around with the keyboard, and the mouse is used to aim and fire. Generally speaking, it works pretty well, but all in all, the game feels like a clunky take on the same aim-and-fire mechanics used in Crimsonland. Also, enemies and power-ups can often hide themselves up against walls due to the game's isometric view of the action. While the game does have some depth to it--you can purchase additional weapons--the action is generally unsatisfying, though the way that all the corridors get smeared with alien corpses and blood after a prolonged firefight at least looks nice.
