Developer: Activision, Inc.

Aliens: The Computer Game is a 1986 video game developed and published by Activision for the Commodore 64, Apple II, and ZX Spectrum. It is based on the film of the same title and is also known as Aliens US in Europe, where it was initially planned to be released as Aliens: The Second Part.

Aliens is a series of six minigames strung together via graphical interactive sequences, akin to an adventure game, though the only interaction possible is advancing the dialog, displayed in speech balloons. The minigames are mostly action sequences that involve piloting a ship from Sulaco to the planet's surface, recognizing equipment, and fighting aliens.
