[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin There's a hallway, and there are aliens in it]].

''Alien Hallway'' is a strategy game developed by Creator/SigmaTeam (the makers of the ''AlienShooter'' games). Your task is to command a squad of SpaceMarines to fight to the other end of the hallway--which is, of course, filled with aliens--and destroy the aliens' base before they can do the same to you.

* OneHundredPercentCompletion: Getting five stars on every level earns you a [[CosmeticAward Steam achievement]].
* AlienInvasion: The first planet you have to defend is Earth.
* {{Cooldown}}: Represented by a greyed-out section on the icon that gradually drains away. You can purchase an upgrade to reduce the cooldown times.
* EliteMooks
* EveryBulletIsATracer
* ExcusePlot: The plot, in a nutshell, is "Aliens are bad. Shoot them."
* FireBreathingWeapon: Your basic Flamethrower unit.
* FrickinLaserBeams: The weapon of choice for the strongest unit.
* GameplayGrading: Your performance on each level is rated from 1-5 stars, and you get more money for higher ratings. There's also [[CosmeticAward an achievement]] for getting [[OneHundredPercentCompletion five stars on every level]].

* SpaceMarines
* SuicidalOverconfidence: The AI's job is to advance toward you at all costs, even if they're hopelessly outgunned.
* SuicideAttack: One variety of {{mook}} is an alien with a bomb who runs toward your guys and blows himself up.
