Ultimate Alien Hominid Guide of Wisdom

66 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Castle Crashers has got it's own guide on this forum, and considering many people find Alien Hominid much harder, and I like AH more, I decided to do the same for our little yellow friend.

So I'll outline the Achievements, the Unlockables, the Bosses and maybe the weapons, and try to focus on the bits people tend to struggle with.

CHARACTERS:

behemothalienhominid.gif

The titular Alien Hominid. When his ship is shot down to Earth by the FBI, he begins his journey across the world to get it back, traveling through a city, Russia, a desert and finally Area 51. Helped along by Fat Kids and his buddy Installball, Alien Hominid finally defeated the Giant Hominid and made it off the planet.

Fat Kids. These guys help Alien Hominid along throughout his game, prompted by a mean FBI agent who stole one of their ice creams. They're very resourceful and have a school bus, a glider, bear costumes, the ability to dodge bullets and a stolen military truck!

A little eye ball used by the FBI and the US Military. He can be installed in a huge robot. Alien Hominid makes friends with him and then they help each other out. He also appears in Castle Crashers!

HELPING HAND:

Perfect Fight: This is a hell of a lot easier with a friend. Both of you should be on "easy" difficulty, and get your friend to block big alien's bullets at all times. All fire should be directed on the Alien, because the faster you kill him, the less likely he is to kill you.

Survivalist: You should load up the city survival mini game. Once it's loaded, head all the way to the left and get in a car. Drive forward so all the cars in front of you get blown up, and then back all the way to the left quickly. When the FBI car come sup from the left side of the screen, kill him quickly. You should easily be able to last 20 minutes on the easier difficulty settings.

Head Chomper: There are two places that you can do this: Firstly, level 1-3. Go left until you reach the first barricade, kill the grenadier and move forward just enough that the barricade is in the middle of the screen. Now you just have to wait on the left side of the barrier for the FBI agents to appear, two at a time, and do this: jump on the first ones head and run into the barrier. Wait for the second one to jump over the barrier, bite the first one's head off and jump on the second guy's head. A third guy should appear from the right, and you just repeat.

Secondly, you can load up level 2-1. Right after the watchtower you'll see two lumps. Get the second lump so it's almost completely on the left of the screen, but leave a gap between the left edge of the lump and the left edge of the screen big enough to fit our alien. The tactics from here are pretty similar to the first, except now there's four guys and you have to run left whilst riding a guy's head.

Expert Alien: You only have to beat the last level on hard. Best tactic is to have a buddy whose playing on easy with you to act as a bullet sponge. Similarly to the "Perfect Fight" achievement, have your buddy stay between you and the boss at all times, and constantly barrage the boss with bullets and grenades.

Others: The other achievements are pretty straight forward to get, but if you're stuck, just ask!

BOSSES:

Level 1-1

You can only hurt this one in its green eye. At the beginning it will

only walk left and right, and fie a laser at its head level. just keep firing

charged shots at its eye. It will occasionally punch downward if you are

underneath him, so beware of that. After enough damage he will smash the

building, and jump really really high. Look at the little alien head, and try

to line that up with the robot to hurt it when its that high up. When it land

jump up so you dont get knocked over. Now instead of just worrying about the

robot agents will attack you. The robot just runs around now, and jumps up,

so all you need to worry about is the agents hurting you, and hurting the eye.

Just keep attacking and it will go down soon.

Level 1-2

This is a giant robot bee. It will stab the car underneath it

destroying it. Just keep to the back cars while shooting it. When it stops

smashing cars its preparing to attack directly. So press triangle to enter the

car you're on. It will move forward, then back. When its back, jump out of

the car and fire upon it some more. After every time it does this attack it

will start crushing cars at a faster rate. Just keep up the same strategy,

only a bit more cautious when its gets faster. It will eventually fall.

Level 1-3

Named, "horrible slime monster who occupies level 1-3," well

that is what I call him at least. He's really easy actually....once you know

what to do. I'll admit I died quite a bit before I found how to hurt this

banshee. All you need to do is shoot the fire hydrant on the right, and the

water will damage the monster. But you need to watch out for agents, as well

as the blobs of goo which turn into hands that attack. You should destroy the

hands in between hydrant runs to keep them at bay. After a few hydrant shots

the boss will go down. Also watch out when it fires a blast of goo at you,

but its easy to dodge.

Level 1-4

Well, take good note of the "Warning do not damage head" sign on its chest.

Guess what you have to do, damage its head. So charge up a shot while

avoiding the pink shots from its arm cannon. When you're fully charged jump on

the arm and fire at its head. Don't worry if it punches you off, or it blows

you off with its mouth, you don't lose a life from that. However if this

happens get up fast to avoid the pink blasts. However don't stand on its

moving laser too long as the other hand will grab and kill you. As you damage

it, it just gets faster, and punches you off more often. Its not hard, so you

should beat it no problem.

Level 1-5

Just blast it 'til it dies!

Level 2-1

At the beginning

just wail on him until he centers his knife on you. Now he will follow your

position, ready to stab you when you are underneath him. Fire away at his head

until his knife is almost directly above you, then quickly run to the other

side of it. Now just fire at his head, and move closer to the edge of the

screen until you cant anymore, then repeat the first thing I said. Sometimes

he will shoot fire diagonally out from hi exhaust pipes so keep an eye out for

that. After about a quarter of his health is gone his head will blacken and

you can now damage him at any part of his body, so that makes it a bit easier.

However the more damage he takes the faster he moves. He'll be dead in no time

now.

Level 2-2

You can only hurt him in the head, so get as many shots in now. He will start

to suck up garbage from the ground. When its done it will drop chunks of it in

groups of two. Watch out for these as you continue to damage its head. It

will leave the screen now and those robotic jumping things will come. Now you

can damage them and you must to continue the fight. Well when they are jumping

you cant, but soon they will have there own little boss bar. The four of them

will hover in the air. Then one by one will slam the ground starting from the

left. Before they drop, they do a flamboyant spin so you know which is

dropping. After the first round the pattern will change. So my strategy is to

stick to the third from the left, until its his turn to fall, then when he does

I just move left one. Just wail on those two, switching when one of them

drops. It doesn't matter which ones you damage they all share the damage.

When that bar goes to zero, we get to kill a harder version of the robots.

They are now smaller, and fly around randomly. After enough damage to one it

will open and an even smaller one will come out. The best way to avoid

unnecessary deaths is whenever you think one will hit you, dig underground.

If they come down for you, it can be very hard to jump over. So just dig, and

shoot until all are dead. In the little form its a bit easier to jump over

them, but its still easier to dig. Now the big boss will come back. He uses

the same strategy as before. He will suck up garbage, and shoot it down at

you. You can still only damage its head, so stay on the platform to kill him.

Level 2-3

Stay far to the left, and start shooting at him. He will start rapidly firing

fireballs at you. The best way to dodge these is duck for the high one, and

jump the low one. But the hardest part is remembering to fire at him at all

times or he will never fall. When he stops and starts to roll, start charging

a blast. Jump over him when he rolls towards you. Immediately when you see

him charging shoot him with a charged shot. If you don't he will launch an

unavoidable laser at you. Now he continues that same pattern on the other

side. When enough damage is given he may roll five times before stating to

charge. So if he does that, no big deal, just jump over him all those times,

then stop the laser. That's all he does, so he should go down quickly.

Level 2-4

This boss can be quite tricky, the crane arm will lunge at you, and if it grabs

you, it kills you. So basically, all I can say is hurt it, while jumping to

avoid the crane arm. In my opinion the best way to do this is to stay far

left. I think it's easier to avoid the arm this way, but that's just my

opinion. It shouldn't take too many charged shots to kill it, then you've

beaten the level.

Level 2-5

There's an annoying laser that follows you, and you need to dodge

the shots from the boss as well. Keep moving, and firing upon the boss. When

he leaves the screen, get in the middle. He will sweep across from one side

to the other. He does this three times, and then continues the original

pattern. Well, that's the boss, and when you destroy it you get to watch quite

a humourous scene.

Level 2-6

First you need to find the boss, then when you do just keep wailing on it, and

make sure you are not in the middle of the two clamp things or it will kill

you. When you kill half of it, one half will explode leaving an annoying

second half to deal with. This time instead of killing you with its pusher

thing, it just sends you flying away from it. Try to avoid being pushed as it

often pushes you into asteroids that kill you. It should soon die.

Level 3-1

It starts out shooting diagonally downward and moves across the screen. It

does this five times, so just stay behind the bullets while firing at him.

Then it will launch a laser out and move to the other side of the screen, but

if you stay on the inside it wont hit you. When the laser goes out, move left

and it go again. Just keep going back and forth until it goes to one side and

stops. Now its in its grenade launching phase. It launches a bunch of easy to

dodge grenades. Now it will go back to its first phase and repeat everything.

When its gets to about a quarter health an alien will pop out and start

shooting at you. Its easy to dodge the bullets if you concentrate, just don't

lose track of what phase the ship is in.

Level 3-2

A giant tank has come. Start by shooting at its wheels, to destroy them. It

can still move however. Now it will start using its exhaust things to ignite

the ground on fire. When it does this jump on its body. The next thing to

destroy are those very exhaust things. When you do, then you can work the

body. Watch out for the red bombs it drops which ignite the body on fire.

You need to jump on the ground to dodge this. While on the ground you need to

watch out for the guns on its side. After enough damage you get a go sign

which may confuse you. Go right and you'll see a big gate with guard on top,

and two cannons. This a kind of like a mini-boss but I don't want to make a new

section. Just wail on the gate while avoiding the guards, as well as the

cannons fire. Charge shots work great as you can charge them while you are

dodging the fire. When the gate is destroyed, enter the building to end the

level.

Level 3-3

A giant green robot is the boss, and its similar to the last boss. Now you can

do this boss one of two ways. The quick way (which may involve many deaths to

a lesser experienced player), or the safe way (which is a slow process but

involves a very safe method to kill it in the beginning. I'm only going to

describe the safe way because he fat way is to just fight it from the ground,

and typing it wouldn't help much. So the safe way is to stand on its body,

until its hand picks you up. Well first off, the only thing you can hurt at

first are he two boxes which drops bombs. When it picks you up, duck so the

flames of the exhaust doesn't kill you. You should be charging a shot while

ducked. When it stops the fire stand up, and wait for it to throw its hand to

its head. Don't shoot yet, since the hands goes in fast you may miss the box.

When its bringing you back to the exhaust shoot the box, then duck and charge

another shot for the next trip. See why I said it takes a while, however the

only way you can die now is if you forget to duck near the exhaust. When the

first box blows up, purposely get hit by the fire, and then proceed to get

caught in the other hand to kill the other box. Okay, now get hit by the flame

to fall out of the grip. Stay on one side of the robot and shoot upwards at

the exhaust. When the hands are readying to pound down, jump up on the body.

While doing all this you need to be wary of the guns shooting at you this whole

time. Once one is destroyed go after the other, When both are destroyed you

may think the boss is dead, but its not. If a new bar doesn't fill, then it

means one of the guns are not destroyed. So go destroy the gun, and the bar

should fill again. Now all you need to hurt is the head, and all the hands do

now is they try and smush you. It doesn't take much to take the head out, but

when you do, you just beat quite a long level.

Level 3-4

One thing to remember about this fight is you can not hurt him from below,

since you can only damage his eye, and a shield protects the bottom of it.

Plus that would make it too easy. Well, when its hands appear, jump up when

they zoon in to the middle. Then when the left one is at the top, and starting

to come down, make sure you are to the right enough to miss the attack, but

close enough to jump in the hand as it goes back up. While on the hand you

need to hit the eye on the side. After a few swings of the hand they will go

away and a horde of circle bombs will come at you. They jump when they are

near you so all you have to do is, run under one when it jumps then go back and

run under the next one coming from the other side. After this it completes the

pattern starting with the hands going across the bottom. The next time its eye

will turn purple. Now you can damage the eye from the bottom, and this is the

best time to cause damage. It will shoot purple shots in a set pattern. So

what you need to do is stay underneath it and shoot up until the pattern comes

to you. When it does just run to the side its coming from, then back under the

eye to hit it some more. The shots get faster until they just stop, where as

then it will repeat the punching pattern. I believe it alternates between the

bomb enemies and the purple shots with the punching in between. It will

explode and then the green eye will pop out. He becomes a friend after the

Hominid pets it. Well, now you've beaten the last level before the final boss.

Gather your things and get ready.

Level 3-5

The back will open up, as the most kick balloon boss music plays. In the

background you'll see your UFO, an alien like yourself (only bigger) and many

agents cheering. The eye ball goes to chase the UFO as the truck drives away

and the boss meter fills. The alien has all the moves you do, and can execute

them all perfectly. So, in other words, don't get near the hominid as he will

slice you. He can also grab onto you, throw grenades, and shoo you. I find

that standing on the ledges is the best way to fight him. Only hitting him

with charged shots. Also you want to make sure not to stand on the ledge above

him because he'll slice you. Just keep moving, avoiding the ledges he's under,

and his big blasts. When he throws a big grenade in the air you want to make

sure you re on the ledge. It ill ignite the floor on fire. He will stand on

one ledge and fire shots. One up one down, and repeats that. Down the high

one, and jump the low one of course. Then when the fires die, he will continue

his onslaught.

YAY when the boss bar empties he runs off the screen, as a new

boss bar fills. Well, its not over yet as the alien gets in a HUGE UFO to

attack your scrawny self. Fire up at the UFO mercilessly, until it launches

four lasers. Underneath the ledges is safe....for now at least....so shoot

and avoid the three lasers. (Aww crap, I finally died while writing this.

Hold up while I beat the first phase again.) Ok, back again, well, exchange

charged shots when the lasers are not going to hit you, and hide under the

ledges when they will. After a few trips back and firth it will stop and

prepare for a purple laser. Stay DIRECTLY in the middle, as the lasers bounce.

The middle is the best spot so you don't get hit. Its better then standing to

the far sides because the next shot will hit those areas. Now the boss will do

us a big favor by destroying those protective ledges. HOORAY! Stand on a

ledge when the bombs are dropped so you dont lose a life. Now out of four

spots it will shoot bullets at you. It can get hard to doge sometimes so watch

out. Just don't jump or dig. If you jump you're bound to be hit by the next

bullet, and if you dig all of the bullets will be fired at that spot making it

impossible to jump out alive. Now its tractor beam comes, and since it

unavoidable you need to get sucked up into the UFO.

Welcome to phase 3, on top of a wobbling UFO, fighting the alien hand to hand

again. Which ever side the alien is on, that's the way the UFO will tilt.

Just charge up shots when the UFO is tilted so you can't hit him. Then when

he runs up shoot him, and jump over him. Two helicopters appear, and when

they re destroyed they take away a piece of the UFO, leaving les room. Finish

him off in this phase, and watch in slow motion as he flies off the UFO. Then

watch as the UFO explodes, and you and the other alien fall. That's it, you

beat the game.

MINI GAMES:

PDA Mini Game: This is a one-screen platformer similar to Super Mario Bros. You play as a little stick figure who has to get the fruit and kill the enemies by jumping and exploding, and then get to the exit. It's the only mode in Alien Hominid that is four-player. You can download extra level packs for it, via XBOX Live.

Super Soviet Missile Mastar: Based on (or the source for?) the cutscene before level 2-1, you have to guide an 8-bit missile from Russia to America, whilst avoiding obstacles.

Challenge: There are three of these, one based on level 1-2, one on level 3-1, and one on level 3-3. The object of this game is to stay alive as long as possible and get as many points as you can.

Neutron Ball: A two player game where you go against your buddy to try and get the "neutron ball" in their goal. You can only use the knife, and can't jump whilst holding the ball.

Pinata Boss: A floating pinata horse will fly around the screen. You have to shoot it so that the candy falls out, and then collect the candy to get points. The catch is that the mini boss from 1-1 is running around and trying to attack you, so you have to get as many of the points as possible without risking your own life.

If there are any other sections you think I should add, or if you want to contribute, just tell me.

Very nicely put together. I would suggest images of the bosses and such but we know how hard those are to get. Once either the sprite component packs are released, or I actually get around to working on extraction from Alien Hominid, I'd be happy to do some assembly and put together the images for you. Either that or you can just get gameplay screenshots like you did for the minor enemies.

Don't worry if it punches you off, or it blows

you off with its mouth

I'm sorry, what?

Everyone else knows what it means.

The fact you think it has gay connotations suggests that you have underlying gay feelings for all men in the world.

But wait, isnt there only one person in the world with the achievement for every hat in the game because you cant get certain ones because they are glitched or something? Or was that fixed...

Maybe its just me.

Question about the Afro. Are there any other requirements then just beating 1-5?

I have all hats unlocked so it isn't a matter of me having trouble getting it, the reason I ask is when I beat the game I didn't unlock it. Now I would have had to beat level 1-5 to beat the game but the hat still wasn't unlocked. After I beat the game I was going through collecting various hats and noticed I didn't have the Afro so I played the level again and got it (the game did not make a note that I unlocked it like it usually does).

Could there be some other requirement like using no continues or do you just have to play through it a second time to get the hat.

That was fixed. You can now unlock all the hats.

This is a problem some people seem to have. I'm not sure why. The Afro came pretty easily for me, I don't remember specifically looking for it. It should just be available after you beat 1-5 for the first time.

That is weird.

I convinced a friend to get Alien Hominid HD and I told him to check if he unlocks the afro when he clears level 1-5 for the first time.

I have the achievement.

Also, the guide is wrong on a few things. I actually followed the old GameCube guide on GameFAQs to the letter and I got everything.

Remember, you NEED to complete the level after unlocking things or it doesn't count.
