''Alien Soldier'' is a 1995 run-and-gun game by Creator/{{Treasure}} for the SegaGenesis. While it shares some similarities with other run-and-guns, the focus here is on lightning fast reflexes instead of using the strongest weapon avaliable. You play as Epsilon-Eagle, a cybernetic birdman who fights against the rogue organization Scarlet, travelling throughout the galaxy and leaving large amounts of carnage in your wake.

** The tagline quoted at the top of the page, which is apparently touting what Treasure could squeeze out of the SegaGenesis' Motorola [=MC68000=] [[UsefulNotes/CentralProcessingUnit CPU]] in terms of [[SceneryPorn graphics]], framerate, and [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome sound quality]].

* AttackItsWeakPoint: All bosses have a weak spot, where you must hit if you want to do [[ForMassiveDamage big damage]] to them (or even damage them at all).

* BadassBoast: The engrish laden quote in the title screen (replicated at the top of the page) is essentially this, as it was the tagline for the Japanese campaign of the console. Treasure's usage of the tagline, along with the line "For Megadrivers custom" is their way of saying Alien Soldier [[TechDemoGame was tailor made]] [[TechnologyPorn to push the Megadrive and it's Motorola 68000 CPU]] [[GeniusProgramming to it's absolute limits.]]

* InvisibleMonsters: Flying-Neo, a creature that looks like a cross between a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot zombie dragon and a helicopter]]. Once you get him down to a [[TurnsRed quarter of it's health]], the goddamn thing becomes ''completely invisible'' save for a silhouette of its tail and legs on the platform you're on when it flies low or when the lightning strikes.

The plot, [[ExcusePlot if it even matters]], concerns a criminal organization of genetically-engineered beings called "Scarlet" who terrorized the planet Sierra. Their members are able to live within humans, animals and machines via a parasitic ability. Epsilon-Eagle, the leader of Scarlet, was ambushed by a team of Sierrans with super powers, and [[TechnoBabble thrown into the space-time continuum]]. The new leader of Scarlet, Xi-Tiger, was [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating hated by his own men]] for being too [[BloodKnight ruthless]] compared to Epsilon, and as such he wanted to destroy Epsilon once and for all. Xi-Tiger attacked a Sierran research laboratory where he sensed Epsilon in the body of a boy. He took a random girl hostage so as to force Epsilon to come out. Epsilon, instead, [[ViralTransformation transformed from a boy into a cyborg birdman]]. However, Epsilon's [[HumansAreGood good human side]] [[HeroicWillpower began to overcome his evilness]] and made him want to [[DoomRepercussionsOfEvil fight the demons]]. This annoyed Xi-Tiger, who [[MoralEventHorizon killed the girl]] before running away. The plot actually makes even less sense as it proceeds, with [[spoiler:the planet blowing up and Epsilon ending up fighting a giant mechanical lion called Z Leo without the player really having any idea who he is or why this is necessary.]]

* NoExportForYou: The cartridge wasn't available in the US, but it was available through Sega Channel. Years later, it was released on VC and Steam.
** The game was released in Europe, however.

* BossGame: Stages are generally short, with only a handful of enemies at a time in the spaces between one boss and the next.
