The latest game in the film franchise started by Ridley Scott lands on mobiles with some serious requirements: Alien: Isolation brings the atmosphere of the original movie to touchscreens adapting the title for consoles and computers that was released in 2014. And the adaptation is spectacular, especially its graphics.The adaptations of console and computer titles to mobile phones usually entail a series of restrictions in the platform jump, especially if the original requirements were high. Although we have a large number of examples available on smartphones with really faithful adaptations; how are the GTA’s, Star Wars KOTOR or a newly released title from another galactic saga: Alien: Isolation. Prepare to suffer heartbreak on your phone.

Alien: Isolation is a game that demands high-level resources, a detail that restricts its download to a handful of mobiles, all with a recent high-performance processor. This entry limitation reduces the number of people who will have access to test the game. And there is another physical limitation: the developers recommend that it be installed on a mobile with at least 22 GB of free space. Alien: Isolation is larger than 10GB.
After the initial download of more than 3 GB, the mobile needs to download more data on the first boot. Some are required (the 3.05 GB of the game), others are part of added modes that were released as DLC at the time (3.58 GB of survivor mode, for example, included in the price). If downloaded completely, which is logical given the size of the game, Alien: Isolation occupies about 10.3 GB on the phone. Almost nothing.
Beyond the huge amount of data required for downloading and booting, Alien: Isolation offers a very high level experience for a mobile game, It shows that the developers have put all the care in maintaining the highest quality with the adaptation.
Alien: Isolation faithfully conveys the anguish of Alien’s closed atmosphere. The game is a first person shooter (FPS) set in the first movie of the saga, Alien, the eighth passenger. Planned as a stealth and survival adventureIn Alien: Isolation, you have to survive by carefully exploring every nook and cranny of the ship, praying not to find an alien creature when turning a corner. The feeling of uncertainty is very well achieved, also the lighting and the sound that prevail in each stage.
The new game for Android and iOS devices is now available at a somewhat expensive price for a mobile title, although inexpensive if we take into account that it is almost identical to the one that can be installed on consoles and computers. It requires an outlay of 11.99 euros, requires a latest generation mobile and it’s worth every penny of what it costs.
