Hi people! Made this game a little while back when I was just starting to get the hang of GameSalad. Finally got it on the Play Store!!

This game is really designed for kids, as the whole time I built it, I had my 3 year old boy play it for me...and he enjoys it so that was good enough for me lol

Please download and rate, plus any feedback will be much appreciated! Thanks!

    What is the significance of the name "Illegal Aliens"?

    Not much thought went into the name to be honest mate, it was just named that, based on the fact aliens are 'illegally' trying to land on Earth!

    Good job on a first game!

    Maybe Trump will endorse it...

    I was curious because it's a very charged phrase, at least in the U.S.

    @JScott LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!!!!!!!!! @Pineal Gaming Just some advice some people might get offended by the name of the game. I know your intention is not to offended anybody and it is a pretty clever name but in todays day and age some people might try to steer up some controversy "just cause" . You know what! If this does get some controversy you can make a lot of money just because of the name of app. But congrats for your first application

    Illegal Immigration is a hot topic here in the US right now, but Illegal Aliens from outer space not so much.

    To be fair illegal immigration and immigration in general is a massive topic here in Britain at the minute and has been for some time. But the phrase 'Illegal Alien' is definitely a US thing as I've never heard it been used over here for that meaning!

    If people can really get offended over the name of a game which has nothing to do with the topic they are on about, then I feel sorry for mankind lol like you said, it may cause a little controversy then if that's the case, but that's a bonus either way :D

    The term can be offensive but obviously if you didn't intend the connection (and it's clearly not a game about protecting national borders from other humans), I wouldn't worry about it.

    Might be a coincidence... although this terms isn't the day to day bread in the UK, the vast majority of UK citizens will be very aware of the term and it's political coloring.

    Also, it is quite a funny 'coincidence' when one looks at one of your other games: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pinealgaming.vsrussia

    Especially the app description. Some thematically related terms...

    Well done to you! You've done your research! But again, the term is not meant for that meaning, it was just a name that went with my game! I'm not some who believes in political correctness so I'm not really too fussed if people want to get frustrated by it!!!

    As for my other game....thank you for that free advertisement, but that was just based on ISIS and Russia, nothing to do with illegal immigration at all......just like the game 'Illegal Aliens' isn't...... it's just a name!

    It's all starting to smell fishy to me...lol who in their right mind makes ISIL the protagonist in their game?

    @Lost_Oasis_Games completely agree. No such thing as bad publicity
