I have the original files on this from my tandy I had years ago. I never had instructions for it so for me it was trial and error. I used to be able to get to the station before the storm hit you had around 10 turns. once in the station I was never able to get past the first alien that was stalking you...though I was only 10 at the time might have to try it again.

You can download the complete game from here:
But it's just the QBASIC files, and you need to download the correct interpreter in order to run the game. GW-BASIC won't work, there are differences in the code... So don't just copy the ALIEN.SPC file into this version that has LOAD.EXE (which is just a renamed GW-BASIC interpreter) or otherwise mix and match files in any way, or the game will just blow up at some point and dump you back into the BASIC shell...

No Good. There is a file missing here, "ALIEN.SPC". I found another copy elsewhere and it was corrupted also. I tinkered with them a bit (they're BASIC) but no luck. Not worth the bother.
