About the game

Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew.

Tips and Tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Use Path Drawing To Specify Crew Movements
Always consider drawing a path for a crew member to reach an objective. This allows Amanda to have crew members stay out of the alien’s way and gives her a chance to close doors behind them to keep the alien at bay. Sometimes path drawing is a little tricky, so the best tip is to click on the dot that represents the crew member Amanda wants to select and then tap where they need to go. If at all possible, though, drag a finger along the exact path to get them from point A to point B as safely as possible.
- Leave at least one power slot available, just in case
The Xenomorph hunts and moves in unpredictable ways, so sometimes you need to react quickly and close a door or activate a Motion Tracker Zone (MTZ) to save a crew member’s life. Keeping one power slot available at all times can be that clutch lifesaver.
- Use Crew Commands
Amanda can tap on each crew member and get a list of orders for them that includes run, hide, sneak, and come out. Use these commands to keep crew members safe. If an alien is near a crew member and there is no door to keep the alien away, the best thing to do is to tell them to hide until the alien has moved on. It’s also good to wait a little longer after the alien disappears, just in case, before telling a crew member that it’s safe to come out.
If there’s a room with a door that could save a crew member nearby, tell that crew member to run into that room so that Amanda can close the door behind them. Remember, though, that each time Amanda speaks, it alerts the alien to her location. While giving commands, also listen for the sounds of the alien entering the vents near Amanda and respond accordingly.
