Aliens: A Comic Book Adventure is a 1995 point-and-click video game developed by Cryo Interactive Entertainment and published by Mindscape[1] for the PC.


You play Lt. Col. Henry Hericksen, an ex-Colonial Marine aboard the USS Sheridan who is now the commander of a three-man terraforming team. Your objective is to travel to the remote outpost on B54C in order to find the cause of a distress call your vessel received. You must search the mining complex and piece together the scattered evidence to learn exactly what and who is behind the sinister experiments that have gone horribly wrong.


Gameplay is a point-and-click adventure with limited, inventory-based puzzles. Grid-based combat is present as well. The player is given what amounts to timed objectives throughout the game, and must uncover the truth about the mysterious outpost's history before the colony's sudden destruction.

The game uses a first-person perspective that switches to third-person during the cinematic sequences, showing the player's party exploring the base. A third person 'isometric' view is also utilized during the combat sequences.
