    Great old school game. Took 3 downloads to get the right version that allowed access to full game. Now I have it I am happy to say it works very well and is like the original but with slightly better graphics. Also if you run out of keys you can shoot the doors open. That wasn't in the original was it? I will have to dig out my old amiga from the garage. You can also access the shop at any point in game, instead of from intex terminals. A nice idea. All in all a good version and worth £2.99. Full Review

    Amazing but needs usb otg support I've been waiting ages for the android port and I'm pleased to say its been worth the wait. Would get more stars but there's no option to enable real usb or Bluetooth controllers? I also cant quit out of the app on my galaxy s3? Will get 5 stars if sorted. Full Review

    Great port of a Classic I remember playing this game a long time ago and it is nice to be able to play it again. The controls are very good and responsive. The graphics are nice, and it is very neat to play with the classic graphics and sounds. As for Gree, if you click off to the left side of the screen it makes it dissapear, it really isn't as bad as people are complaining about. My only complaint is that you can't use the back key to exit the game. But overall great port and a great game in general. Full Review

    Almost perfect Love the game but have a couple of suggestions: Allow the back button to close the game (or go to menu when in-game). Maybe even have a quit confirmation. Also, get rid of the login service - there are too many of these floating around, I refuse to sign into yet another! Glad to see the game released though, takes me back :-) Full Review

    Old School classic with a ne lease of life This is a revamped version of a classic pc game, also playable in its original form. Expansion packs have been included which is a nice extra. Classic mode can be very difficult to aim but the revised controls in enhanced mode make up for it. Great for such a low price Full Review

    Sweet Game!! Never played the original but played some of the later games on PSN. I liked those so I decided to try out this one on my Galaxy Tab 2 and it plays extremely well. The updated controls allows an intuitive way to play a twin stick shooter on a touch screen interface. Download this one if you haven't yet. Full Review

    Excellent revamp but... The game contains the original maps and an aditional expansion. I would have given it 5 stars but when I try to create a gree account it says in Japanese that it isn't avainable in my area. I live in the US so i guess it doesnt work here. I can't log in with facebook and when I tap the facebook option in the settings menu a facebook window pops up and says that I'm not logged in. Is my game progress backed up? If I make in game purchases will they be saved? Needs more levels. Beat it in about an hour. Full Review

    After installing and trying to run the game i get a "gree" page open in an asian language (chinese or japanese). I can't get into the game because i have no idea what anything says. I've tried reinstalling and I'm not using a vpn, so i dont understand why i keep getting this asian page. Full Review

    Great fun but too easy. A really fun top down shooter I enjoyed it thoroughly. I only wish it was a bit more challenging and had a greater variety of enemy types, objectives and areas. Team 17 probably has some of the best touch screen controls here and I hope they put it to good use with some new content or other games based on this engine. They claim this is the first survival horror game but there are no survival mechanics at all and it's not particularly scary. Don't get me wrong though despite it's flaws this is great game.

    No controller support and abandoned Come on Team17. One of your best games ruined by Gree and the fact if you play it without Internet it reverts to the free version. Hugely disappointing in the way you treat paying fans. I know you have a million more worms games to churn out but don't abandon games like this please. Full Review

    OldSkoolRaver Brilliant game! Just like the original Amiga version (mind you, what has happened to the computers in game that you used to be able to use?) The only gripes I have, are some of the permissions, no exit button, and GREE, seriously, get rid of GREE! Apart from that, brilliant game. Looking forward to Superfrog HD... Full Review

    Nice homage to the original Only wish: 2 player! Fighting over who gets the first aid, arguing over where to go next, and the shame of wasting a key on a door to nowhere. If only I could relive those great memories! Full Review

    No no no Firstly, what's this Gree rubbish that you're trying to get me to sign up for? No thanks. Secondly, I buy your app and then you want to charge me more for in app purchases of ammo and keys? Really? Not impressed. Full Review

    One of the most awesome games of all times I have no idea how many scared and adrenaline-full days I spent on this game on Amiga. If Team17 was a religion I'd be one of the first believers! Kudos to them for the sounds, level design and atmosphere! Full Review

    Awesome I had all the team 17 games back in the day... I even upgraded my amiga to get the new alien breed! Bit daft I know... great to see team 17 back in action with such a top game. Any chance of getting multiplayer going again? Full Review

    Nathan Einsig Published date: June 27, 2013

    Doesn't work. No response from dev after 6 weeks and four emails for support. On my RAZR HD I am running the latest 4.1.2 Jelly Bean build. When I load the game I log into GREE (wish I didn't have to). After logging in is successful (with a notification) the screen turns a dark shade of blue and game music starts playing. Nothing else happens and I have to force stop the app. It took so long to sign up with GREE and sign into the game that I missed the window for a refund. Not cool. Full Review

    Amiga classic brought to life! Great game! The enhanced graphics and dual stick mode really brings this old Amiga classic back to life again! It looks great, and it is a joy to play! unfortunately (compared to the Amiga version) it's a tad too easy. On the Amiga you had to save ammo, keys and money. You hade to do tactical choices in choice of wepons and 'extras' in order to complete the game on a single run. In this version every weapon cost 25 000$ (even the best ones), and you never loose them (!). I bought a plasma gun after a couple of stages and it made me feel invinsible. after 10 stages I had 30 keys 9 lives and 86 clips of ammo. That's the only downside of this game, I remembered Alien Breed to be a real challenge as a kid. But I shouldn't whine to much about it. You've done a great Job Team 17! I play it on a JXD 7300s with physical controls and it is one of the most enjoyable gaming experience I have had on this device! :) Full Review

    Misleading While the gameplay is ok, GREE is a waste of space. Secondly, while I paid for this game the screen tells me that it is a free version. When I try to select other packs it tells me that it is not a genuine copy of the game. Care to explain what I paid for then? If these two issues were fixed then it would be a 5 star review.

    Excellent customer support EDIT: Extremely timely response from support with a solution. Simply tap outside the registration window. ******* OLD REVIEW: As Gree have closed down their European services it is no longer possible to register an account and play the game. Full Review

    Mike Bye Published date: May 10, 2014

    Why moaning about IAP's, the game is the same as it's always been, you don't have to make any purchases, they are there to make the game easier if you wish. If you want to play it as it was originally just don't make any purchases. There is also nothing wrong with the controls, at least not now and not for my phone. Full Review

    Tiamat Calypso Published date: October 9, 2013

    Not compatible with USD gamepads Very interesting title greatly hampered by clunky touch screen controls and lack of support for USB gamepads. Plus, although the game is not free, it relies significantly on in-app purchasable items - really bad idea! To sum up - a lot of content, but a chore to play. Full Review

    Andrew Bowman Published date: January 16, 2015

    Pretty cool I don't know what people are complaining about. The controls are the same as every other game in the genre and the Gree signup screen can be predictably bypassed. The in-app purchases are completely irrelevant. There's absolutely no reason to buy anything. Full Review

    Szczepan Kamiński Published date: June 22, 2013

    Buggy Lame, obtrusive Gree(d) that won't let you 'play now' unless you click on black. Weird menus and design choices. No respect for android design guidelines (menu software key is always on, keys doesn't dim, back doesn't work! That's the foundation of Android for Pete's sake). Four stars out of sympathy for this oldie. Full Review

    Samsung Galaxy S3 I PAID for this old favorite and it will not run. I get a Welcome "My name" screen and it stays black. I hear game music playing in the background but screen stays black. Uninstalled and reinstalled...reset phone, nothing helps. I emailed the developers about 2 weeks response or anything. You fail Full Review

    Very good Over 20 years old and still owning most of the other games on here. Controls are good and the enhancements are good. Maybe I'm missing something but I can't go on the computer in game. Would be good to see ProjectX come back too! Full Review

    David Ball Published date: October 23, 2016

    I love the original, and this is a great conversion However, I almost couldn't play and wanted my money back because the 1st screen I saw when opening was all-Japanese "Gree" pop-up. I don't understand Japanese. It had 2 options, neither seemed to skip. After looking at other comments I found that you could skip this incomprehensible screen by clicking the black edges (not obvious!). If it wasn't for this I'd give 5 stars. Full Review

    Jeff Sereno Published date: April 25, 2014

    Can't play it. I can't tell if this is spam-ware or not. I can't get past some stupid GREE page. I'm not interested in logging into something or signing up to something. I just want to play the bloody game. Shame, Team17. I'm going to fire up my Amiga and play Alien Breed there instead. At least it won't spam me with ads despite paying money for it. Full Review

    Matt Gillanders Published date: August 3, 2017

    Bought this in the recent sale and was a little confused that the game is the 'free' version (says that on main menu) & that it says 'this copy is not genuine' when I try to access the additional maps. Wouldn't have purchased if I'd known I was getting a half-baked version. Pity. It's actually a nice remake. Full Review

    Andreas Sepúlveda Published date: February 16, 2013

    It's good Reminds me of playing it on my amiga. However, the GREE login thing keeps stalling. I have registered but it won't log in, nor does anything happen when I hit "play now". I have to close the game down then open it using the recent apps, that way it bypasses it. Until next time I play anyway. Full Review

    Wulf Mayers Published date: July 5, 2013

    Shocking I was greatly looking forward to this, however the game constantly informs me I dont have a genuine copy, even logged into their game system. One star for decent gameplay in the demo levels... Full Review

    Can't play (4/23/13)Somehow I cannot bypass the 'Sign up for Gree' page and can't access the game at all. Waiting for a fix. (3/2/14)Still no fix. Disappointed to say the least. At least you didn't screw up Worms.. Full Review

    Marc Floyd Published date: May 1, 2013

    'This copy is not genuine' I saw this on sale for $0.99 and though to myself, "Why not?!". After installing the game I find that I only have access to the first four levels, clicking any of the other chapters tells me, "This is not a genuine copy of the game" and directs me to a Play store page that does not exist. I'm not sure if it's broken or the rest of the game is intended as IAP, if so nowhere was it listed on the store page. Not happy! Functionally the game is fun though. Full Review

    3 pounds well spent!!! Great game, negative comments are a load of bollocks from people who can't use dual analogue sticks or select a campaign from a menu, or figure out that shop works with INGAME currency as well and was designed to. Bottom line : if you like good shooters and gloomy atmosphere, BUY NOW! Also runs great on my One X. Full Review

    If no one's going to say it the I will. I'm a big fan of Team17. As a fan I have to ask you to please bring a real Worms game to Android! That crap EA slapped together was not well maintained; it doesn't work with any device running Android 3.0 or newer. I will enjoy Alien Breed, but I can't hold back while my all time favorite game is left out. Full Review
