I forgot to add, I'm not fond of the new adds on MyPlayCity that activate when you roll over them. And while trying to watch a video for a game I considered downloading, the bottom 1/4 of the video was covered by an ad that I don't think can be cleared, making it pointless to watch the video. I'll glady try out the games they offer here, but there's no longer a reason to explore anything on their site. I hope they read this and back off in their forced ads. I know that's how they make their money but it reminds me of a goose that laid golden eggs....

My thanks to you also, WhiteRabbit. You keep this site going! And yes, Tangerine Dream is pretty nice to listen to in games like this! Been a fan of theirs since 1973, read Lord of the Rings while listening to Phaedra and Rubycon.

As for Alien Outbreak 2, I'm going to like this one. I made it almost to the end of the 2nd level before I got a 'Game Over'. Must be the late hour... Anyway, I like the graphics, sounds are ok, music not, and I like that it's not like 90% of the SHMUPs on Steam where you fire a continuous stream of bullets and blanket the screen. This one takes a little skill! And the background (so far) doesn't make it hard to see what you need to avoid. Yes, I like this one. Thanks to the Giveaway site and once again to MyPlayCity. Happy New Year to all!

Same here. Lord of the Rings is one of my favorite books. Can't remember how many times I've read it since I purchased my copies back in the early 70#s. Bought the three vol paperback initially after reading the Hobbit, then got a deal from my local bookshop for a deluxe three-volume set. I used to buy Sci-Fi/Fantasy book virtually every week, so they often gave me good deals. I paid £2.50 for each volume and still read the same books every so often. Used to read it at least once a year when I was a teenager and into my early 20's. Phaedra is one of my favorite Dream albums. Happy New Year. p.s. I must sort those Steam codes. :)

Ok Windows 10 x64 Pro. Yes is a typical shooter but on Easy I got into Level 11 after it saved at 10 (beat the Boss & its little ships it drops). Escape key when into Level 11, which started off about as easy as did Level 1, before breaking to here.
That seems to be the only Save method since breaking in L 11 gave message saying Game Saved but you will only continue from L 11 which I guess is warning you can't replay 1-10 w/o a fresh start or maybe a new Player?
Anyway for what it is and managing to get past a Boss right off it's ok. Didn't seem to have the Shop/Customizing feature some of these have, just the in play-extras you catch. Gotta say my right finger did get worn out a bit (14k shots game said after L10 done). Save the right mouse button secondary extras for when the alien bigger ships bunch up -- seems to blow several that way.
I took some hits but didn't really watch that right side meter much, but didn't die. Just don't rem if had extra ships/lives. There are little messages in lower left to show what extra you've gain and is in effect so blast away then.
Wore down Boss by hugging one side (tho the little ships dog you there), wear its top live bar all way down, then hit it from front on with a double right mouse blasts. If have two of those secondaries it finishes Boss. Imagine could be more challenge at higher levels but for now it's 7.75/10 just for a trigger fest if a fan of genre.

White Rabbit, I begin to suspect that you really don't want to know how I would greatly improve Alien Outbreak 2. Why else would you ask that users sign up and sign in on an insecure page that really doesn't work very well? Alien Outbreak 2 will just have to stay as it is.

I like Alien Outbreak 2. It's like DOS Space Invaders, with color and sound. It is very quickly and easily installed, and it runs well. The setup file is relatively small and downloads quickly. My only complaint is that one must move one's ship with the mouse and at the same time use left and right mouse buttons to fire weapons. I'd rather have the firing buttons on the keyboard. Thank you, MPC and White Rabbit.

Well... I like it. There is more mobility of your ship than in the Star Defender series but those enemy ships are harder to kill. None of them blow up with just one shot. I got totally killed in the first battle on the 'normal' setting. I guess I will try the easy levels first. I usually have sound turned off but left it on on my first try. Not bad music of explosion sound effects. I will keep it. Thanks White Rabbit and Play City and Happy New Year to the Whole World from North Carolina.

A fun space shooter although I find I need to take a break from time to time as the action is so very rapid and relentless.
I used esc key to begin the exit procedure...and it is a many step process to exit and save and put your name in the hall of fame list each time.
Installed and ran perfectly smooth and full screen. Can't comment on the sound because I always turn it off.
Thanks for the fun game GOTD and WR.

Now I realize that there is no way to save a game and continue at another time. Definitely not rewarding as I don't want to invest hours in playing to enjoy all the levels and accumulate enough lives to make it through the entire game. Kind of boring after playing for awhile.

........................................Moderator comment.......................................

Hi Suzanne, A lot of these old games were the same. There are save points, but you have to beat the boss, so, if you drop out before the end of the ten stages, you have to start again. Annoying I know. Happy New Year. :)

Happy New Year from a Britanny's neighbour to you and your family WR
Thanks to you I fell in the game ;)

Downloaded, Installed, and Activated with no problem on my Win10x64 machine using Edge as my Browser.

Just last night I was thinking I needed a change ,gamewise, for awhile and an old fashioned Shoot Em Up is just the ticket. Played for six levels as a trial run and its fairly standard, shoot a crapload aliens as they float around shooting at you. And I must say ........ this game is going to be pretty tough to "beat". Keep an eye on your life meter and grab every power up you can because even the "easiest" aliens can take a lot of punches. Until you get some power ups under your belt just click like you've never clicked before!

The Graphics are decent enough for what it is but it is an older game. No way to save a game either that I can find. Looks like the coins you win aren't meant to be spent either, just a "score". Anyway, about the save function or LACK thereof that may really impact the replayability of this for me. Sure, arcade - style I can enter my name in the "Honor Roll" , top score's, but having to start completely over every time I play?

Anyway...... I hesitate to fully recommend this game but its not bad either just ...... uneven I guess.

Feedback for the Developer? You betcha!
1. A Save function!
2. Early levels unnecessarily hard.
3.A Save function!

Final Verdict : If you are a shootemup fan grab it! Its an Alawar game so you know the Graphics and Gameplay are decent. Be warned that I can find no save function so far. You'll may want to grab it if you're NOT a huge fan of this type of game just because you DO have to start over each time. As a seldom used change of pace. Which is what I'll be using it for. This probably won't be on my machine for very long though.

As always thanks to MPC and the GGOTD Team for efforts.

indianacarnie, I did not make it through the first level so do not know about saving score - but, did you try hitting 'escape' and see if it will do it? That is what works on some games and then you pick them up again. Could be??

Its me Indianacarnie, just updating my earlier post. Have played again and its grown on me a little. Still no real Save that I can find. I guess after you beat the Boss at the end of every 10th level you can start from there but anything in between seems to mean a start over. Once you start losing your power enhancements you're screwed be warned.

AMD virtual resolution must be OFF, otherwise the game, although in full screen mode, will be shown in a quarter of screen.
I.e., it will be in the up-left corner in a quarter of screen, whereas the other three quarters will be black.

I've recently changed my hardware: amd apu a10-7800, with integrated radeon r7 graphics.
Win10 home x64, v1709b16299, DEP AlwaysOn, UAC max setting, 10 defender, 10 firewall, 1920x1080 60Hz, custom scaling 150%.

I love the "Star Defender" series and this looks like it might be similar. I am sure going to give it a download and 'test drive' it. I'll probably get killed in the first battle but that is okay. I'll come back and let you know!

Alien Outbreak 2
In Brief
Alien Outbreak 2 is an old school Space Shoot Em Up (Shmup)

Alien Outbreak 2 downloads to a 16.5 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives are able to save games on any drive they wish. The newly installed game is 39.8 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Alien Outbreak 2
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop. three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the additional tasks window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)

Ever since the beginning of history the humanity has never faced this kind of danger. Enormous intergalactic army begins a global war aiming to destroy mankind and take over our planet. You and your battleship are the last hope of civilization, so put doubts and fears aside and protect all of us in the game Alien Outbreak 2! Increase your survival skills and become the best space pilot throughout all times. Start up your ship and hurry up to the battlefield in the outer space. You will face hundreds of well-equipped enemy spacecraft forces which are as merciless as professional. Maneuver between mines and bullets shooting them back and destroying detachments one by one. Simple and low-armored enemies are followed by heavy battleships that try to cry and defeat you. Pick up bonuses and power-ups falling from destroyed rivals and shoot your weapons covering the space with enemies' wreckages. Alien Outbreak 2 is ready to provide you with cool graphic and awesome SFX of your revenge spreading around the enemy bases. Use heavy missiles that destroy a ship with a single shot or a heavy electric charge which knows no barriers. Set a mine and pick up a power shield making your ship invulnerable.

Enough waiting, download this challenging space shooter game Alien Outbreak 2 and explore more than 70 levels of universal adrenaline!
Edited reference accessed HERE. th October 2017

The Game:
Alien Outbreak 2 is a typical top down space shooter, with a retro feel; reminicient of Space Invaders, but with a greater variety of aliens and weapons. You shoot through ten levels, then at the end of the 10 levels, you meet a boss ship, (which I failed to pass on my first attempt). There are eight boss levels making a total of 80 levels. Power up's are dropped reasonably frequently as are energy drops, which boost your weapon abilities. You can also stack secondary weapons, which I suggest you save for the boss levels. The dollar signs are not money but points. This gives the game a sense of replayability for those who like to beat their scores. This game is clearly an homage to earlier titles, this is a decent shooter, well worth downloading.
The ship is controlled by the mouse with the left mouse button controlling your primary weapon and the right mouse button the secondary weapon. Collecting energy boosts the energy level meter located in the top right of the screen when you collect enough energy to fill the meter, you are awarded a weapon upgrade. The highest I managed to upgrade was level 9, but you can raise it to level 10. The higher your weapons upgrade is, the better your chance at beating the boss at the end of each tenth level. If you are hit the energy level indicator goes down. If it goes to zero, you lose the weapons upgrade to the previous upgrade. If you lose all weapon upgrades your ship is destroyed. The left indicator (top right of the screen indicates the number of secondary weapons you have and the current weapon loaded. Some bonuses double your basic attacks or make your ship invulnerable, increases the rate of fire, slows down time so that enemy movement and weapons slow and invisibility. All bonuses expire after 15 seconds. It's a good idea to make yourself familiar with these bonus types so that you can take full advantage of them, for example knowing when the fefense bonus is active so that you have no need to avoid weapons fire. Secondary weapons include rockets which destroy all ships with just one hit, lightning destroys any enemy ship that crosses it's path and bombs fragment and destroys any enemy ship that is hit. None of the secondary weapons will destroy the boss with one hot but are a useful aid in destroying it .apart from bosses. If you like Shmups, this is worth downloading, though it wouldn't make my top ten favorite shmups list. 7 out of 10 for game play and graphics. Music is nondescript; personally, I turn it off and play my own music, for this type of game, I usually play something like Tangerine Dream, or totally opposite, some heavy metal. :)

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Alien Outbreak 2 to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Alien Outbreak 2 and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.
