Alien Star Menace offers a good storyline. The game puts you in command of a great starship called Palladin. Unfortunately, aliens and ogres have found a way to breach through the outside defenses of the ship and they are wreaking havoc inside. It is your task to drive away the alien invaders in order to save the ship.

You then start the game with a small squad and your general objective is to crush the invaders on every level. This is a turn-based strategy game so you will have ample time to position your troops for defense or attack. You can launch massive attacks anytime as long as the aliens are within range of your troops or super weapons.

Battles happen in real time and you will know if you are winning or not. While gameplay may look simple, it still requires strategic thinking on your part especially when pitting your limited forces against a marauding horde. Each level becomes more difficult but you have a chance to upgrade your capabilities by unlocking more troops with powerful attributes.

Overall, the game offers decent battles with exciting campaigns and skirmish modes. It will keep you on the edge of your seat especially when more powerful aliens start attacking your squad.
