Alien is a video game based on the film of the same name. It's the first licensed game ever made for the Alien franchise, which went on to get several more games (including Alien: Isolation). Alien was designed by Doug Neubauer, who was responsible for designing the 1979 game Star Raiders. The gameplay is incredibly similar to Pac-Man, having players navigate a maze of corridors collecting dots (alien eggs in this case) while avoiding three aliens. You're armed with a flamethrower and can overpower the aliens by collecting pulsars. Horror games have come a long way!
