NEX – only the fastest and bravest will succeed.

NEX is a unique mix of squad based first person action and strategic tactical planning.

NEX features stunningly lit 3D environments, high definition animated characters and a dangerously intelligent alien foe.

You are in charge of a small human commando squad battling terrifying hoards of violent aliens in dark, gloomy, confined spaceship wastelands.

You’ll need razor-sharp reactions during solo missions and a combination of aggression and strategic planning when controlling your commando squad if you are to have any hope of meeting your varied mission objectives.

During these missions you’ll encounter a range of alien threats, culminating in an epic battle against the all-powerful leader of the alien race. Starting only with a basic Electro-Laser, you can collect ammunition upgrades for more power and also flame thrower ammunition. Next you’ll need to lay mines, rescue prisoners, set timed explosives, strategically seal off vital areas and defy mind-control tricks often in a fast paced race against time.

OMG this game cool

It's a great game. It has decent to good controls, next to Wolfenstien 3D. The Graphics do the job and granted it's not gameloft quality, but the aliens are scary and guns look cool. The UI is neat and the sound effects work pretty good. Yeah the levels are similar, but atleast you get objectives, upgrades and tactical gameplay. In the movie Aliens most of the scenes in the corridors look identical anyway so I don't see what the problem is.

Update: The latest update has screwed up the controls. It's difficult to move backwards now. My thumb has to almost fall off the screen just to press down on the virtual d-pad. This gets really annoying! My review goes from 5 stars to three until this is fixed. Thnx.


DO NOT fall for all the fake reviews on here Like I did.

This is the single most repetitive, generic, and boring game I have downloaded from the App Store yet.

Why you should not make the same mistake I did with this game.

- Every single level in the entire game look exactly alike. All they did was copy and paste hallways. This is a hallway shooter.

- You walk as though you are underwater with two broken legs. In other words, slower that slow.

- They forgot to program the A.I.. None of the enemies showcase even a hint on anything resembling a brain. They simply spawn and run directly at you one at a time every 5 seconds. They do not take cover, or dodge, or flank you, or shoot back, or flinch when you shoot them. They simply just run at you.

- The controls are abysmal. The worst setup for an FPS on the App Store yet. You can believe me, I spent over an hour wondering why my guy turns slower than an 18 wheeler.

Do you want to play a repetitive hallway shooter with generic enemies who spawn one at a time every five seconds and simply run at you???? I didn't either, but I no longer have a choice.....but you do.

Save youself, RUN!!!!!!

A good start

I have one complaint. The enemies are too tough for a casual gamer like me to deal with. It would be better if you limited the shooting aliens range, because he can shoot way farther than you can(or maybe just took him out of the game). Also when you kill an alien close to you, its body parts hit you and hurt you...what's up with that???
