Game Summary

Area 51 is the only action-packed 1st person shooter set in the U.S. government's most secret and secure military facility. The U.S. Army has received a distress signal from Area 51 where a viral outbreak has just shut down the research facility and the automated quarantine procedures have locked all scientific and military personnel inside. A small Special Forces unit led by Specialist Ethan Cole of the HAZMAT (hazardous materials) Division is sent to investigate. As Cole, players will delve into five massive levels within the confines of Area 51, discovering a deadly mutagenic side effect of the virus that controls the minds of those infected, as well as an ancient alien colony buried beneath the facility. With a multitude of human and alien weapons, players must explore chilling conspiracies such as the extraterrestrial crash at Roswell and the faked lunar landing, in order to solve the enigma of Area 51 before the viral mutagen is released and irrevocably mutates all life on Earth.

Here are some hints on getting into just a couple of the seven secret rooms hidden in Area 51. There are fourteen separate secret rooms entries... In the Hangar (Wave 2), shoot out the three blue "emergency" lights during the first lockdown. There is one to the left and two to the right of the red tractor truck. You have to get the one on the left during the quick camera pan. This will get you into a room where aliens are taking a latrine break. There are 36 items to shoot in this room; six of them are aliens. You can score over 40,000 points by hitting everything - a major scoring opportunity! This entrance to "Head Quarters" is secret room entrance #3. By shooting all 15 windows in the back of the hanger, players can get into the secret room entrance #4, "Chow Palace." This will open up into a huge power-up feast, with 21 icons: two give shotguns; two give machine guns, and 17 give grenades. This room is also the only place in the game where you can see a Stage 2 alien, the intermediate bioform between the Stage 1 zombies and the full-blown Stage 3 Kronomorph alien. Here the Stage 2 is happily munching on a poor human. When you get into the Admin Building (Wave 4), shoot out the first "exit" sign and the first three ceiling lights right around it. This will get you into a room where there are disturbingly cute alien babies hidden insi de eggs. You can score over 15,000 points in this room. This is secret room entrance #9.

Kronn Mode

To play as an alien Kronn Hunter, you must shoot *only* the first three STAAR Team members you see on the Front Tarmac (Wave 1), as you start the game. Don't shoot anything else! You will be restored to your starting number of lives, and you can play the entire game (including secret rooms), and even get *two* unique storylines at the end of the game (one mission failure, the other victory). The powerups and stat plates are all different, too. Kronn mode, if you can handle it, is the highest possible scoring mode in Area 51. At each update stage, you will receive an additional 20,000 point bonus. It will also put up a green alien symbol on the high score screen if you make it.
Right when you start the game, shoot nothing else but the first three Star Team members you see. The game will restart and you will now be playing as a Kronnhunter.
Shoot the first three S.T.A.A.R. team members and nothing else at the beginning of the game. After the first human is shot, you will not be harmed by any gun fire. After the third human is shot, you will transform into an alien in the main hallway of the first level. You will have infravision when playing as an alien, which allows targets to be more visible.
