Alienz is a puzzle game where the objective is to survive as long as possible by removing as many Alienz from the game board as you can.

The Game Board consists of an 8x8 grid of squares. An alien will appear at the top of this grid at the start of the game. When the game begins, the bottom 2 rows will be populated with Alienz.

Combo chains are formed when several alienz are destroyed in quick succession. They give a large score bonus.

To summarize the instructions, all alienz whose number matches either the amount of alienz in its column or row will be removed from the game board.

Update: Eye candy. Right click to toggle anti-aliasing on and off.


Move the mouse left or right to move the alien at the top of the game board. Left Click to drop an alien into the column you choose.

You can remove alienz from the game board in 2 ways:
1) drop an alien into a position on the game board such that it's number matches the amount of alienz in it's column.

2) drop an alien into a position on the game board such that it's number matches the amount of alienz directly adjacent in it's row.

The bar at the bottom of the screen shows how many alienz are left before a new level will begin. When a new level starts, you will receive a score bonus, and a row of Gray alienz will fall from the top of the
game board.

Gray alienz will begin to degrade as you destroy alienz directly adjacent to them. They will lighten in color as you weaken them. When they are destroyed, a regular numbered alien will appear to take their place.

If any column reaches as high as the top of the game board, you will begin to lose points. If the entire game board is filled, your game is over.
