"Excellent graphics and keyboard response is very finely tuned. The single colour per room allows for good line graphics." (Read Full Review)

"Control is as with Knight Lore... In fact, with its crumbling blocks, walkways, and one-way leaps, Alien 8 is simply Knight Lore II." (Read Full Review)
... Personal Computer News
"Fans of the earlier game will need no urging to rush out and buy it. Those who have neither game should buy Alien 8 now, and find out what the fuss is all about." (Read Full Review)
