In true Duke Nukem style, Subzero Software's Alien Carnage has at its core a fierce fighting, world-saving, superhero: Halloween Harry. He is the only man on Earth with the skills, desire, and firepower to defeat the alien invaders and save the human race from being subjugated as zombie slaves.
The action takes place in New York City where the aliens have already begun to wreak block-to-block havoc. Harry receives his orders from Space Station Liberty and, with guns and flame-throwers blazing, attempts to track the insidious vermin to their underground lair, a spaceship buried under a NY high rise.
The full version of Alien Carnage—known as Halloween Harry in its shareware days—can be played at the easy, medium, or hard skill level. In easy mode, weapon costs are cheaper and enemies die more quickly while the hard level is just the opposite. An Infoboy, the game's main menu screen, is used to gain access to various game options and select missions.
The game keeps track of high scores as well as other in-game information including an ammunition meter, time bonuses, accumulated credits (for buying more weapons), score, and the lives/health meter. Harry has access to several weapons and tools to help him track and exterminate the aliens. Included in his impressive arsenal is a radar scanner, jetpack, power-ups (vending machines), and a communications device.
Alien Carnage features 20 levels, six lean and mean weapons (flame-thrower, photon cannon, missiles, grenades, micro-nukes, and Omega bombs) and a great many aliens to fight. Enough of the briefing—strap on your jetpack and dive into the action! ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
