About Alien Breed:

Alien Breed™, recognized as one of the foremost Amiga games ever released, was launched in 1991, developed and published by Team17 Software Ltd.

A sequel was released in 1993 (Alien Breed 2) and a 3D edition, both of which won numerous awards. The well-loved series had lain dormant for 14 years, until December 2009, when it arrived in stunning fashion with the production-heavy 'Alien Breed Evolution' on Xbox 360 LIVE Arcade achieving Christmas No. 2 sales position on Xbox 360 LIVE Arcade.
