Alpha Mission™

The 80’s was known as the golden era of arcade games. These arcade games set the foundation for the video gaming industry which we see today. Almost all the games which we play nowadays are more complex versions of different arcade games.

Alpha Mission™ is a vertical-scrolling shooter arcade game created by SNK in 1985. This action game has an innovative storyline yet simple gameplay. The plot of the game is as follows: Out beyond, in the galaxy of Tetrenova, a war has been fought that has exhausted resources and even worlds. The survivors band together and look for a new place to rebuild. They choose a seemingly undeveloped planet, Earth.

The Gameplay

The gameplay involves the player controlling a defense ship called “Syd” to destroy the invading forces and ground targets with bombs. Alpha Mission™ is a one-player scrolling shooter game known for its segregation of air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons. Missiles are used to destroy ground enemies, while laser-like weapons are used for aerial opponents. Throughout each of the levels, the player must fight off waves of enemies that threaten several space stations and a boss must be defeated at the end of each level.

Like most early games in this genre, when the player dies, all weapons are lost and the player is moved to a point slightly before the point of death. The player will only die if he or she gets hit thereafter, reducing health from 1 to 0. This, in a way, gives the player a second chance to recover and continue with the game.

Strategy

The player’s craft can also be upgraded to have more powerful weapons by picking up various power-ups throughout the level. Power-ups are objects that instantly benefit or add extra abilities to the game character. These can be in any shape or form.

Difficulty Levels

The player must defeat the boss at the end of each level to progress to the next one.

Interface and Controls

Use the arrow keys for navigation and the control button, such as a spacebar, to shoot at the enemies.

Alpha Mission™ is a very easy action game which makes it an addictive and enjoyable game to play.
