Bluestacks lets you desktop Alien: Blackout

Alien: Blackout was released in 2019 by FoxNext Games and D3 Go! for mobile platforms, allowing fans of Alien (and Amanda Ripley!) to terrorize themselves in a new story.

Amanda has made it a little further along the way since Alien: Isolation, this time depending on the cranky crew and passengers of an S-Class commercial shuttle to escape a fatal encounter with the Big Chap.

I’ve enjoyed playing through it (once) and even working to cobble together a transcript of the “set pieces” that contain some neat plot points and facts about the Alien universe.

Just recently, though, I discovered a site called BlueStacks. It has a desktop emulator for the game, allowing players to take it to another level.

You’ll find it quite easy to download the BlueStacks software (Version 4, currently), and then purchase the game for about US$ 4 bucks. You will also need to complete a Google sign-in to access the Play Store.

Not a bad price for another chance to freak out on the Big Chap! If you don’t have a mobile platform on which to play this game, maybe give this a try? To read more about the game and its release, click here.

Meanwhile, I’ve got to get back to the game and tend to that snooty Thorncroft fellow! He gripes about everything I direct him to do…
