Prepare to freak-out all over again with this lovingly crafted slice of pure gaming joy.
- 13 levels of eye-popping insanity including the famous power-ups and huge bosses.
- Faithful conversion of artist Dan Paladin's manic comic style to the GBA screen.

Tuna had spotted the appeal of indie games long before people recognised "indie" as a movement or genre. We'd seen how The Behemoth had jumped from working at AAA studios to work on smaller, riskier games, and we wanted to join in.
When we heard they were talking to Zoo Digital, a local publisher, about bringing the console versions of Alien Hominid to Europe, we persuaded them that we could use our experience of developing GameBoy Advance titles to bring it to that platform too. Zoo and The Behemoth both loved the idea, and we got the gig!
We had very little experience of working in Flash, but we soon got to work reimagining and reworking the original assets to work on GBA. It's such an awesome game, and developing it was a lot of fun too.
