After the success of the first two Alien Breed games, Team17's release of Alien Breed 2 was inevitable. What was maybe less inevitable was how hard the second/third game was. Although the gameplay was basically unaltered from the previous release(s) AB2 was bigger, with more levels, and constantly regeneration aliens. Better graphics, weapons and more player characters add tot he exerience.
AB2 is a classic multi-way-scrolling viewed from above shoot 'em up. But one which some players found just a little too hard to handle. For the ones that did every few levels they were rewarded by a stunning piece of artwork, and a password to enable them to restart from that point.
