The lights are on
The Xenomorph's decades-long battle against the Predator comes to iOS and Android platforms with AVP: Evolution.
This third-person action game lets you pick your side of the battle. As an Alien, you start off as a measily Facehugger and eventually evolve into a fearsome Alien Warrior. On the Predator side, as your young blood racks up a kill count you can work your way up to becoming a master hunter.
AVP: Evolution is coming to iOS and Android devices on February 28 courtesy of Fox Digital Entertainment and Angry Mobs Games. Hopefully it won't suffer the same fate as the much maligned Aliens: Colonial Marines. To see the game in action, check out this trailer:

This looks fun.
Well, it looks better than A:CM, but that isn't really saying much.
right after colonial marines, I don't know if this will be popular
Never seen an Alien do combos like that before.
Oh here we go.
Probably better than ACM.
The best Aliens handheld game - heck, one of the best Aliens ever - is Wayforward's "Aliens: Infestation" for DS. It's the only one smart enough to look at Metroid to understand how to craft tension and dread and build on exploring a mysterious locale... and not just look at typical shooter stuff and do that.
If Sega wants to get some serious money from their Aliens license, they'll forget Rebellion's AVP, ignore Gearbox's travesty, and ask Wayforward to remake Infestations for HD consoles. Redo the whole thing like a Shadow Complex or a Bionic Commando ReARMED, and put it on Steam, eShop, PSN and XBLA. Get that game to waaaaaaay more gamers!
well dunno. hope its free.
Looks pretty good but I could see clumsy controls being an issue, especially on a phone.
Bet it turns out better than Colonial Marines.
