Alien March is just another standard run and gun (and jump) game for the Android OS.

Too bad the controls are wonky - hitting jump or fire doesn't always do what it's supposed to, leading to death.
The game-play is repetitive - you automatically run, and tap to jump or fire.
The level design in campaign mode is uninspiring - it's random and boring.

By jumping on an alien or shooting it, you destroy it. Every so often you can get some hearts to refill your HP or crates to replenish your ammo (or get a different looking gun that fires the exact same bullets). Reaching the final crate gives you a spaceship to fly off to the next planet and do the exact same thing in a slightly different colored environment.

There are so many other, better games out there that I really don't know how Alien March will survive in such an over saturated genre (at least on the Android).

Honestly, until the control issues are fixed, I wouldn't even bother with this game. Nothing is as frustrating as running for 19185 feet, just to die because the jump button did nothing.
I also don't understand why they don't have some sort of a double jump feature. You control an astronaut with a jet pack on his back, which apparently does nothing.

All in all, this game has been done before, and much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game on kindle fire August 6, 2012

Fun game. Only controls are jump and shoot. The controls work fine on my kindle fire. Graphics are really crisp. Fun game when you want to kill five or ten minutes and not hours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Virtually unplayable August 6, 2012
By J. Webb
Verified Purchase
Like all the other reviews, the controls are horrible. The jump is finicky and lasts for a particular amount of time. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Not to mention the board scrolls faster the further along you go, making judging jumps harder and harder. It's almost impossible to avoid the creatures because of this. It shouldn't be my device, my Epic 4G Touch is more than capable of handling this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very basic design. August 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
The entire game is simply a man running forward with a gun. The only user controls are a button to jump and a button to shoot, that's all. You can't stop running forward and you can't control speed. All you can control is when you jump, how far you jump based on how long you press the jump button and when you shoot.

You are running on a planet full of hostile aliens. You can shoot them or jump on top of them like Super Mario Bros. Without any ability to control the run makes is less fun than games like Super Mario Bros though.

It seems the Dev is learning to make games.

The game does not require any permissions at all. Glad Amazon is not pushing a freemium today. I don't do freemiums.

My son had a great time playing this game and getting through each level. Even though he has beaten the game he still likes to play it every once and a while. Enjoyable time waster.

3.0 out of 5 stars Game for the young August 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
The game starting out is challenging, but becomes monotonous after 2 planets. On the whole, it gets too fast for the older player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Game April 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a game my whole family loves. My 4 year old daughter likes to play. My 6 year old son and husband have contests to see if they can beat the high score. Love the old school feel. Wish I could find more like it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating
Slow reactions make this a frustrating game. This is a simple fun game but it is hard to play something that reacts so slowly to the touch pad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Challening
The game is not challenging. It is also a little boring. I don't like how you jump and shoot. It is just not a very fun game. Please don't buy it.
