Original Alien Breed: Retro Top-Down Shooting Fun For PS3, Vita

So what were you playing in 1991? Was it Alien Breed on the Amiga? If so, want to revisit a fond memory?

As revealed at the game's Facebook page , British developer Team 17 is bringing their old-school action game to the PlayStation 3 (via the PlayStation Network) and Vita in early February.

It will include cross-platform multiplayer between the PS3 and Vita along with ad-hoc local and online co-op entertainment. The addition of the new expansion packs – Convergence, Valiance, and Synergy – bring the total number of levels to 30, and you have the option of playing with the original or the "enhanced" graphics. This classic top-down shooter should be played with the original visuals, but it's still nice to see an updated version of such a nostalgic title.

Me, I never had the Amiga, but a friend did. I don't even remember if that system was very successful… Kinda went in one ear and out the other.

"I don't even remember if that system was very successful"
– wow, dude, it was like the grande finale of the entire "home computer" era, before IBM/Intel and Apple took over!

Practically every games developer from back in the days have at *least* one foot in the Amiga camp. Bethesda started on the Amiga!

The Amiga introduced "workbench"/desktop to the masses, and was a fantastic tool for creativity: music production, graphics, 3D modelling, video production, programming… The entire demo-scene springs from the Commodore machines (Amiga is the successor to the Commodore 64).

… And of course, gaming. Monkey Island first appeared on the Amiga! Syndicate! Lemmings! Speedball!

The Amiga is legendary, and was a huge sales success!
