Pet Alien landing in UK

Set for September on DS.

The Game Factory is bringing Pet Alien to UK shops on 14th September.

It's exclusive to the DS, and based on the CGI children's comedy of the same name which is shown in the UK on NickToons.

It's been put together by Shin'en, whose name may be familiar from the Iridion shoot-'em-ups or the DS' own Nanostray, and sees you tackling 80 levels set inside a giant robotic spaceship, using the show's cast of alien friends to solve puzzles and battle against enemies.

There'll also be a quintet of stylus-driven mini-games.

You can get a better idea of what's going on (sort of) by flicking through our enormous Pet Alien DS screenshot gallery.
