Description
This is a hack of 20th Century Fox's "Alien". In this game, you are investigating the mystery of the 2049 destruction of the SSS New Yorker, which was destroyed my strange creatures over the planet Neptune. Grab all the space plankton, as it is the primary source of energy of the Mutant Space Urchins. If you grab a Supernova, you can destroy the Mutant Space Urchins by touching them. You can touch any dark blue Urchin or any flashing Urchin, but touching any other Urchin will destroy you. You also have a stun gun which will ward off the Urchins for a few seconds.

If you clear the screen of space plankton, you will go to the next screen where you will attempt to salvage the remains of the SSS New Yorker. Touching it without being touched by the Urchins will net you a bonus and solve the mystery of the disappearance of the SSS New Yorker.

A game manual is also included.
