Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues Cheats & Cheat Codes for Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Windows, and More

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues is a 1993 shoot ’em up, run and gun style horror game and it’s the direct sequel to Alien Breed. The game received ports for both OCS/ECS and AGA. After the 1991 Alien Breed release, the second game received many upgrades including better graphics. It was built on a much more advanced game engine, allowing for the game to play more seamlessly. Scrolling between screens was smoother than in the original game.

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues is a much larger game than the original. It contains 17 levels, while Alien Breed only has 6 levels. The game continues its improvements from the original by having a much more aggressive difficulty curve. The game gets harder faster the more the player learns to adapt and accommodate the mechanics. Players can play solo or with a second person.

Due to Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues’s age, it doesn’t have the same media coverage that modern games do. Publications like IGN don’t have a rating or review of the game. Metacritic also doesn’t have any solid coverage of it. That said My Abandonware rates the game a 4.8 out of 5. Lemon Amiga rates it an 8.1 out of 10 and IMDb gives it a 6.9 out of 10.

Today, players can download playable versions of Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues. GamesNostalgia has a download for PC and a download for Mac. Lemon Amiga also has several sources for possible places to download the game.

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues Premise

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues is a top-down, run and gun horror game that picks up where the 1991 game, Alien Breed, left off. The Alien Breed franchise is heavily inspired by the iconic horror franchise, Alien. For this classic video game, most of the emphasis is on the actual gameplay. There is a setting and a vague story to justify why players are trudging through this endless Gauntlet-style battle. Players have the choice of playing four different characters. Each character has their own special skills, strengths, and weaknesses, so whoever the player chooses will severely impact their gameplay. Each playable character is an Interplanetary Corps soldier.

The player’s chosen Interplanetary Corps soldier is dispatched to an alien-infested colony where they are expected to fight and destroy the alien invaders. The game features three main areas, the Civilian Tower, the Science Tower, and the Military Tower. These towers are connected by large tunnels, corridors, and outdoor areas. In total, the game features 17 zones the player must explore and fight through. Alien Breed II puts a lot of emphasis on collecting credits and keys for buying weapons, ammo, and upgrades. It also features plenty of explorable areas off the beaten path that will grant the player bonus rewards.

At the beginning of Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues, it has a brief description of the world state so players can get a feel for what they’re facing. The description reads as follows:

“It’s been 9 long years since the first outbreak when IPC members Johnson and Stone crushed an alien invasion of a remote space research station. For 9 years the horror has ceased. But now, it is about to continue.”

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues allows players to choose one of four Interplanetary Corps soldiers. Up to two of these soldiers can be active at a time since the game can be played solo or on split-screen. Since the game focuses so heavily on the gameplay, though, there’s not a lot of personal information given about the playable main characters.

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues Cheats FAQ

The Google search results of “Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues” and “Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues cheats” are almost identical. Neither search comes up with much, either, and some of the frequently asked questions start talking about the Alien franchise instead. This guide will go over a few of the relevant search results. Unfortunately, there are only two relevant frequently asked questions to go over, so let’s take a look.

How many levels are there in Alien Breed?

This FAQ is actually referring to the original Alien Breed. There are six levels in total in Alien Breed 1991. A year later, a special edition of the game came out with a lot more content. Alien Breed Special Edition ’92 features 12 levels, which doubled the size of the original game. Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues is even larger than the special edition version, though, as it features 17 levels.

How long does Alien Breed 2 take to beat?

This FAQ is asking about Alien Breed 2: Assault, which came out in 2010. Alien Breed 2: Assault is part of Alien Breed’s second era, so has nothing to do with Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues. According to HowLongToBeat.com, Alien Breed 2: Assualt takes about five and a half hours to beat if the player just focuses on the main story. The main story and side quests take about six and a half hours and a completionist run takes nine hours. Unfortunately, HowLongToBeat.com doesn’t have enough data for Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues to accurately portray how long the 1993 game takes.

According to a few other sources, like GameFAQs, the runtime for Alien Breed II is right around two hours. There are several complete playthroughs of the game on YouTube that range from an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and 40 minutes, so the game isn’t long. YouTuber AL82 Retrogaming Longplays has a complete run of Alien Breed II that came in at 1:14:44. YouTuber World of Longplays has a run that clocks in at 1:40:16. World of Longplays also has another run that’s actually under an hour.
