This game is highly reminiscent of other run-and-gun games, such as the original Contra (NES version, not PS2 version), Metal Slug 3, and Gunstar Heroes.

The game is an expanded version of the Flash game that originated from newgrounds.com. There are more levels, more power-ups, and a few new manuevers your alien can do. The game also allows 2-player simultaneous play. The gameplay is not exactly the same as the Flash game. If you played the Flash game and didn't like it, then this game probably won't change your mind. If you liked the Flash game and hungered for more carnage, this game is your cup of tea.

There are 16 sections, divided over 3 levels (i.e. 1-1, 1-2, etc.) The sections are pretty long. You do actually get to run around and shoot before you get to a boss. There are two stages where you fly a spaceship around in the sky and blast other flying things.

The game is as hard as they come. Even on the lowest setting, expect to die often until you learn boss patterns and how to fully use your alien's manuevers. There is a lot of explosions and destruction, that you might find it hard to see enemy bullets. There are also instances where the game is so hard, you might think the game has "cheap deaths." As far as I can tell after playing the game through several times, none of the situations are unavoidable, but they are *very hard to avoid*. If your timing or memorization is off in those situations, you will die.

To counteract the hard difficulty, the extra life system is pretty generous. You can get several extra lives in one section or at the end of the section. In addition, the game will save each section you clear, so you can pick up where you left off.

The Hominid game was originally a flash game on the web, that developed a loyal following. Now it has become a full fledged PS2 game!

Gameplay is brilliant. You are a yellow space-alien with two antennae, that can choose from a variety of hats. If you're playing multi-player, try to choose VERY different hat styles so you do not get confused. This is a side-scrolling platformer where you move along from left to right, killing FBI, Soviet Russians and anyone else who gets in your path.

This is a ton of mindless fun. You blast away, riding in cars, flying in spaceships, running on your feet, generally shooting anything that shows up in your path. The game is VERY gory, even though it is cel-shaded. You can bash off peoples' heads, slice them with lasers, even throw them into chippers. If you're not a gore fan, turn that off - and you get a bouquet of yellow flowers insetad.

Be warned, this game doesn't start off easy. Even the beginning bosses are a challenge. But the gameplay is so much fun that you don't mind, and soon you are deep into the hack and slash mayhem. The whole game is tongue-in-cheek, with shops such as 'steakery cakery', 'gass pass' and 'grease glob'.

In addition to the regular gameplay, which is quite addictive, there are a ton of mini-games such as a soccer style game, a missile-against-US game and even a little line-drawing platformer that comes complete with a level editor.

The little touches in this game are just brilliant. You can delve underground just like a Zergling, and then when someone walks over you, you can suck them down and eat them. There are fun weapons to play with, and the list of enemies you face are quite hilarious.

Highly recommended!

It's great to see a traditional 2D game again! This was a fun game to play on Newgrounds.com, but now it's much improved with better game play and graphics! There are many challenging levels and you will be sure to get your money out of this game!

This game is so original it's not even funny. first off, the graphics are awsome and funny, not any of those pixels or anything, real art. the controls and such are so simple and easy, a 2 yr old could figure it out. i love the main character and arcade-like style of this game. awsome moves, fast paced, and it's actually pretty hard. its a sweet mindless fun game. the best move: FREAK OUT, he jumps on the guys' heads and bites it off, throws them, or rips/ cuts them in half. its so awsome.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Otto Correct TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 10, 2006
This game is for Metal Slug and Contra fans. Basically, it takes everything great about those games, and adds an Itchy and Scratchy type cartoon violence art style to it.

Really, its better in a lot of ways than Metal Slug and Contra, its longer, just as hard, but it has a lot more bosses, and its pretty funny too. Also, you can do a bunch of funny things instead of just shooting people. And it has a few great Sinistar-ish spaceship levels, so I guess if you like the old school (I sure do), this game is like a dream come true.

In fact, I really only have two complaints:

1. The grenades don't seem to do any more damage than the shots from your gun.

2. Most of the power ups for your guns (except for the machine gun and the gas gun) don't really do anything other than change the look of whats going on (i.e. how the enemies die and how the gunfire looks).

But to be honest, I didn't notice either until my second time through the game, I was too busy having tons of crazy, fast, old-school-action-game fun.

Alien Hominid is a real treat. Highly recommended.
