Summary: Alien Hominid started out as a free flash game online. You can probably still find it if you do a search. They then got a deal to produce a full game for true videogame systems, though not the PC as far as I know. If you remember the Contra games on the old NES you run through with a gun shooting all kinds of different villains. Generally, it's only your bare skin (you're basically nude) between you and certain death.
Summary: Loads of 2d fun!! With gadgets to use and lots of punches,any fans of old school games should pick pick this up now. One of the best 2d games I've enjoyed in years! I hope people will continue to make games like this in years to come. I had a blast playing this game.
Summary: Still looking for awexome on your PS2 or GCN? Let me recommend Alien Hominid. Originally released as a flash game on Newgrounds [...] It's a cartoony, humor-oriented, gory, classic-styled, side-scrolling shooter, kind of what you'd get if you mixed Contra and Earthworm Jim. Your character is a little alien dude who crash lands on Earth, and then the FBI comes after him. Because, y'know, it's the FBI's job to kill aliens.
Summary: This game is for Metal Slug and Contra fans. Basically, it takes everything great about those games, and adds an Itchy and Scratchy type cartoon violence art style to it. Really, its better in a lot of ways than Metal Slug and Contra, its longer, just as hard, but it has a lot more bosses, and its pretty funny too. Also, you can do a bunch of funny things instead of just shooting people.
Demented fun, hardly like anything else you'll play

Summary: Originally a smash hit flash game on the internet, Alien Hominid garnered such a following that it made it's way onto consoles; and those of us who never played it before can be glad that it did. A 2-D run and gun shooter (think old school Contra or Metal Slug, but with a more twisted sense of humor), you play as a homicidal, yellow alien dodging men in black and other hazards in an effort to find your crashed space ship and get back home.
Summary: In most alien games, the aliens look hideous but not this little guy. I have rented this game 3 times, but I want to buy it! My brother had this game at a sleepover party and it was a hit! You play as a little alien with no name that shoots, slices, and bites the heads off of FBI agents. I love the level where you can drop FBI's into a wood chipper with your UFO:-) If don't own this game, BUY IT!
Summary: This game is so original it's not even funny. first off, the graphics are awsome and funny, not any of those pixels or anything, real art. the controls and such are so simple and easy, a 2 yr old could figure it out. i love the main character and arcade-like style of this game. awsome moves, fast paced, and it's actually pretty hard. its a sweet mindless fun game.
