- This is the first game in the Alien Syndrome series. For other games in the series see the Alien Syndrome category.
- This guide is for the 1987 arcade version. For 2007 remake, see Alien Syndrome (2007).
Two players control two soldiers named Ricky and Mary, who must fight their way through large eight-way scrolling levels rescuing their comrades who are being held by aliens. After they have rescued a certain number of hostages the exit opens and they can pass through it in order to fight the end-of-level guardian. If this monstrosity is defeated, they move onto the next stage. As well as two player simultaneous gameplay, Alien Syndrome features pick-ups which assist the player including better weapons and maps of the current level.
