I must say this is a thing I usually forget, but this game has a second part, "Heart of the alien", where you play as the alien after they fleed from the city. But they made it only for SegaCD, the Megadrive CD add-on. Other games where ported to computer, like Cadillacs & Dinosaurs which I have around, but for some weird reason they didn't do the same for a cult game's second part.

Other than being a little too difficult this game was great. Unusual, and clever graphical approach.

Agreed! The game is unforgiving right from the beginning, were you drown instantly. But it is a nice touch that you do so because the transition from the intro to the actual gameplay is so seemless. I guess I never could have beaten it without save states from an emulator. And even then it wasn't actually easy.

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

The funny thing is that the game's stylistic choice of using polygonal graphics made it easy to upscale for the 25th anniversary release which can be found at GOG.com.
