A side-scrolling beat-em-up in which up to 3 players take on the role of one of 3 futuristic warriors. The game heroes are charged with destroying the hoards of repulsive aliens who are invading the Earth. Many of the aliens are disguised as a variety of everyday street objects; such as telephone booths, oil cans, trash cans and mailboxes. The aliens reveal their true forms as the warriors approach.

Each of the 3 heroes carries their own individual weapon; Gordon has his plasma gun, Karla has a flamethrower and Scooter has an electric whip. At the end of each level, the warriors will enter a building and the shoot-em-up action will switch to a first-person perspective.

Released in May 1990 in Japan.

Alien Storm was the second game in Sega's System 18 motherboard series.

Gilius, the dwarf from "Golden Axe", appears as a judge in the final voting. The player characters from "Golden Axe" appear in the TVs of the first-person shooting levels.

This game features an odd option: by pushing the service mode button you enter a menu with the usual configuration options, the last one allows machine owner's to put their own store name in the introduction of the game (Led sign in the Alien Busters van).

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Hyper Drive : G.S.M. Sega 4 - PCCB-00035) on 21/07/1990.
