Publisher's SummaryEdit

Sometime in the future...

Humankind has begun to explore space, colonizing planets throughout the galaxy. Leading the way are the SPACE MARINES, the toughest heavy metal warriors in the galaxy! Armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weaponry, they keep the peace in a universe filled with danger... and ALIENS!

Vicious, gruesome, and deadly, the Aliens spit acid, and use slithering face huggers to capture their prey. Led by their sinister Queen, the Aliens are spreading everywhere, mutating into more deadly forms as they go. Earth's last defense: The Space Marines, known throughout the galaxy as the best bug-fighters around.

So lock and load, Marine, the invasion is on!

PlotEdit

The Space Marines set down on a planet called Zeevan, and quickly encounter Gorilla Aliens birthed from the ape-like creatures indigenous to the planet. The Marines' dropship is destroyed when a stream of acid spat at it by one of the Aliens detonates the warheads on board, and the team is stranded. They make camp and successfully fight off Alien attacks, but Ripley is captured by the Gorilla Aliens and taken to their treetop Hive. With a rescue ship on site, the other Marines prepare to launch a rescue mission...

Reprint HistoryEdit

Aliens: Jungle Attack was never offered for individual sale anywhere and was exclusive to the Gorilla Alien toy from Kenner with which it was packaged.
