Alien Hominid is an independently developed console video game released for Nintendo GameCube in 2004 through publisher O~3 Entertainment. The game is a side-scrolling shooter in a similar vein to games like Metal Slug, where one hit instantly kills, and can be played simultaneously with one or two players. Players play as the titular hominid who has to fend off waves of secret agents. His main arsenal is a blaster, while players can also melee close-up enemies and use a limited amount of grenades. Advanced moves include rolling under shots, jumping on and biting off enemies heads, temporarily scaring other enemies, and digging underground and dragging enemies down with them. Players can collect a variety of power-ups which simultaneously give players extra grenades, a shield and unique ammo. Players can also drive vehicles, ride on top of a monster and pilot a UFO. Completing certain tasks will unlock hats the players can dress their Hominid in. The main game features sixteen stages spread across three areas, Urban, Russia and Area-51. Outside of the main game, there are three multiplayer modes; Challenge, Neutron Ball and Pinata Boss, a PDA game, featuring around 200 levels and a level editor, and a retro minigame, Super Soviet Missile Mastar. The PAL version contains an extra mode, All You Can Eat.



Sometimes game hangs shortly after displaying memory card read notice.


The game will sometimes appear to freeze (VPS will stay high but FPS drops to 0). Do not panic! After several seconds the game resumes fine.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
