    Walkthrough
    by Seth0708
    
    
    Introduction
    -------------
    I was browsing through the old Super Nintendo games at my local used game
    store when I spotted Alien vs. Predator. Awesome! I thought, remembering the
    glory of the arcade game of the same name. Sadly, once I plugged this game
    in I realized it was not even close to the arcade version. Honestly I do not
    recommend playing this game, but if you chose to try it out I hope this
    guide can help you get through the game. You'll find maps of the levels,
    along with an enemy appearance guide. The maps are divided up as screens,
    but this is somewhat misleading. For the purposes of this game, a 'screen'
    is defined as the extremities you can move without killing any of the
    enemies present. Thus a 'screen' could be as small as one screen on your
    television, or as large as three. As for the enemy lists, not all the
    enemies are necessarily present at once on the screen; several of them may
    appear after you've killed some of their friends.

    The Streets
    ------------
    The Year: 2493
    The Planet: Vega 4
    The City: New Shanghai
    Workers were digging a new subway tunnel when they uncovered dormant eggs of
    an extremely dangerous parasitic lifeform. The colonists were helpless
    against the alien horde. They sent out a distress call to Earth-based
    authorities. The distress call was recieved and understood by a passing
    spacecraft. The Predators were in search of big game. They had been thinking
    to hunt humans, but now they would be up against more challenging prey...

    The Sewer
    ----------
    The aliens had been cleared from the streets, but now their underground hive
    would have to be destroyed before the city would be free of them.

    -Boss: Chrysalis
    	The second stage features your first boss battle, the Chrysalis.
    	The Chrysalis has a simple enough attack pattern, but his great
    	speed makes him hard to hit. Notice the water along the bottom of
    	the screen through the entire stage? they Chrysalis hides in there,
    	leaping out to either flail its tendrils at you, or to perform a
    	rolling attack that covers part of the screen. He likes to jump out
    	right behind you, so you need to quickly turn and punch him a few
    	times. He'll flee back into the water, then you repeat as necessary.
    	If he performs his rolling attack, either move to the top or bottom
    	of the screen to prevent him from hitting you. He should go down
    	fairly easily, once you get past his speed.
    
    
    The Cliffs (Forest?)
    ---------------------
    The aliens may have been cleared from the city, but they have infested the
    forests as well. The Predators continued to hunt down the aliens.

    -Boss: Gorilla Hybrid
    	The second boss has less fanfare then the first, but he makes up for
    	it with brute strength. The Gorilla Hybrid has two attacks; it shots
    	its toungue out a you, or it hops about, flailing while it does.
    	Both attacks can be used while you are dealing damage to it, making
    	it unique among the enemies you have thus far encountered. The
    	damage it deals is negligable, however, so you should probably just
    	start whacking away at it. Sliding to dodge its attacks is somewhat
    	effective, but the damage you will likely receive in failed escape
    	attempts will add up just as fast as taking a hit for every three or
    	four you deal if you simply chip away at him point-blank.
    
    
    The Waterfall Basin
    --------------------
    The aliens have made a hive at the base of the waterfall. A number of human
    victims could still be rescued... as if the Predators cared.

    Screen B
    -Items: none
    -Enemies: Chest Burster
    -Boss: Hive
    	There is no 'boss' per se in this level, but you do have to defeat
    	a large number of Chest Bursters to complete the stage. They fall
    	from the sky continuously. The health bar on the screen decreases
    	every time you kill one, meaning once you reduce it to zero you've
    	won. Since you can only hurt Chest Bursters by sliding, that's what
    	you have to do. Slide attack each one you see while trying to avoid
    	the ones that fall on you. The best way to do this is by moving to
    	the top of the screen. The Chest Bursters fall to the bottom of the
    	screen, meaning they have to move up towards you. This will lessen
    	the number who came harm you at the same time, making it a little
    	bit easier for you.
    
    
    The Spaceport Elevator
    -----------------------
    All the aliens in the city and in the countryside had been hunted down by
    the Predators. But that still wasn't all the aliens on the planet. The last
    nest of the aliens was at the spaceport.

    -Boss: Winged Queen
    	The Winged Queen has only one attack, but that doesn't stop her from
    	being the hardest boss yet. The Winged Queen flies up in the air
    	constantly, making her difficult to hit. The only time you can hit
    	her is when she dives at you to attack. That is all she does; she
    	flies about above your head, then dives quickly in and quickly back
    	to the top of the screen. Thus you have to jump at her as she dives,
    	kicking her before her tail or claws hit you. Occaissionally, after
    	a successfuly dive attack, the Winged Queen will hover just above
    	you and try to hit you with her wings as you get up. Sometimes you
    	can take advantage of this to get off a combo, making your life a
    	lot easier.
    
    
    The Starship Bridge
    --------------------
    The Predators had now hunted down every alien on Vega 4, except the ones in
    the spaceship itself. It was determined that the aliens had come to Vega 4
    from the Orion Nebula long ago. The Predators decided to follow the trail,
    flying the alien-infested spaceship to the source of the alien plague.

    -Boss: Snake Hybrid
    	This guy is actually really easy. He's got three attacks, one of
    	which is really nasty, but they all can be avoided very simply. The
    	Snake Hybrid has a slashing and charging attack like most of the
    	regular enemies, but he's got a third attack that takes off about a
    	fourth of your bar. If you get to close to him, he'll grab you and
    	start slashing and biting. Its unavoidable if you're next to him,
    	but it can be totally avoided with a simple measure. Pick a corner,
    	stand in it, and then just fire your laser repeatedly. Use short
    	bursts, hitting him every other second or so. Each time he takes a
    	hit, he'll back up to the opposite corner. Repeat over and over and
    	he's toast.
    
    
    The Surface
    ------------
    The aliens had all been eliminated. The Predators came at last to even
    richer hunting grounds, in the Orion Nebula. This should be the grandest
    hunt of all...

    -Boss: Alien Queen
    	The Alien Queen is your final opponent. She is nothing more then a
    	super-powered Warrior, but she is still the hardest boss in you will
    	face. Its not her attacks that make her tough, its the fact that she
    	can combo you to death. When she starts hitting you, you cannot
    	break free unless she knocks you to the ground. This means you can
    	(and probably will) lose your entire health bar without being able
    	to even move. She also cannot be hurt while she is charging, not
    	even by an item or a laser shot. There isn't much in strategy for
    	defeating her, you just simply need to knock away at her health as
    	much as you can, hoping that she doesn't 'catch' you with a combo.
    
    
    The End?
    ---------
    All races in the galaxy owed the Predators a debt that could never be
    repaid. The Predators didn't care for thanks, however. It had been a
    glorious hunt. Perhaps some of this new and interesting prey would someday
    be found on another planet...
    
    
    Enemy Attack Data
    ------------------
    Here you will find descriptions of the various attacks employed by the
    different varieties of enemies. Information on enemy health, however, is not
    available because seemingly identical enemies all have different size health
    bars. Bosses are covered in their individual levels above and are not found
    in this section.
    
    Cacoon
    -Spawn: Cacoons do not perform any attacks, they merely produce Face
    	Huggers.
    
    Chest Burster
    -Charge: Chest Bursters charge across the screen, damaging you if they
    	connect while they go by.
    
    Face Hugger
    -Charge: Face Huggers are just like Chest Busters, except they stay on the
    	screen until you kill them. Kill them with a slide attack.
    
    Stalkers
    -Acid Spit: Two word, projectile vomit. They can spit acid at you from clear
    	across the screen.
    -Jump Attack: Stalkers like to leap forward with their fists extending. This
    	allows them to leap at you from just outside your reach, hitting you
