Classic Run-and-Gun Shooter 'Alien Hominid HD' Comes to Xbox, Switch, and Steam

Get frustrated all over again in this beautiful but tough shooter.

Alien Hominid started its life as a Flash game back in 2002. The game was ported to numerous consoles over the years, most notably to Xbox 360 as Alien Hominid HD in 2007. Now, nearly one million years later, modern players have a chance to enjoy the run-and-gun action with a fresh round of mildly enhanced ports. Alien Hominid HD has arrived on Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles, Switch, and Steam.

As I recall, Alien Hominid HD is a run-and-gun shooter that draws a fair amount of influence from the Metal Slug series. Dan Paladin's cartoon-like artwork is gorgeous and colorful, and the game is filled with humor and violence. The difficulty was fairly steep back in 2007, though, and it doesn't sound like the new version is any easier. Are you prepared for a co-op shooting challenge?
