This is the first game in the Area 51 series. For other games in the series see the Area 51 category.

Area 51 is a light gun arcade game released by Atari Games in 1995. It takes its name from the Area 51 military facility. The game was ported to PC and consoles in 1996 in North America and to Japan and Europe in 1997. A sequel, Area 51: Site 4 was released for arcades in 1998.

The plot of the game involves the player (Peterson) taking part in a STAAR (Strategic Tactical Advanced Alien Response) military incursion to prevent aliens, known as the Kronn, and alien-created zombies from taking over the Area 51 military facility.
