* OneHitPointWonder: Lester is as vulnerable as a newborn on this hostile world. Anything from aliens shooting lasers, rocks falling, even leeches, will kill him instantly on contact. To be fair, most of the things that kill Lester in the game would most likely instantly kill a real human as well.

** Subverted with the glass bubble guard kill. If you mess that up, it IS possible to beat that guard fair and square, with very precise positioning and timing of your shields and charged shots. It is VERY difficult though, and was clearly intended to be impossible.

Added DiffLines:

** Jump a bunch of times because that lets you go faster? No good when the game wants you to flee without jumping. You will get blasted even though you went faster and should outrange them. You really need to follow the script EXACTLY when you are being chased by laser shooting bad guys.

Added DiffLines:

* WordOfGod: Eric Chahi did not have anything to do with the sequel Heart of the Alien other than allowing it to be made. In the guide book for the first game, Chahi has his own ideas of what happened to Lester and Buddy after the game's end that contradict the sequel. [[spoiler:Namely, Lester does not die, but instead eventually becomes the leader of Buddy's people and spends the rest of his life in the other dimension.]]
