Alter A.I.L.A. Genesis takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. You play the role of a young man known as Leon, who seeks to survive in the harsh environment he is brought into.

Exploration is done mainly via a side-scrolling view. In certain areas, an exclamation mark will sometimes appear, indicating the presence of hostiles. Press Z when this happens to initiate battle, or wait to let it pass. Sometimes battle will be unavoidable. When walking, enemy encounters won't occur.

The battle system revolves mainly around each character's Abilities, which are a set of commands specific to that character. Abilities require AP and EX to use. AP is gained every time a character takes a turn. The default is 2. EX is gained every time a character uses an Ability. The default is 1. Note that this may change depending on the situation.

"Known Glitches"
Due to the limited functionality of the RPG Maker 2003 engine, there are various glitches and bugs which are unfortunately unfeasible or impossible to fix:
- Sometimes during an action, the battle data of a character will be temporarily overwritten with another character's, causing them to not perform as expected for that round.
- In certain cases, player actions can be interrupted by the enemy or other character's actions. To minimize the occurance of this, wait for current actions to finish before selecting an action with another character.
- Using items and guarding doesn't trigger the code to check for enemy deaths. You need to actually use an ability, or let the enemies take a turn.
- Although not a bug, Active Mode should be changed to Passive Mode in the in-game menu to prevent enemies from acting while you are taking an action.

"Hints and Tips for Boss Battles"
- Don't expect to just be able to spam regular attacks until you can use your Exceed ability. You won't win an attrition war with the enemy party.
- Always target the enemy's weakness if you can. If you want, think of this as a Shin Megami Tensei game. :P
- Make sure to keep your HP up. The vast majority of bosses have pretty powerful high EX costing abilities that'll wipe out your party if you're not expecting it.

- That said, keep in mind, the enemy is subject to the same rules as the party. In other words, they're also gaining AP and EX, and they also need it to use their more hard-hitting abilities. So if you can prevent them from using them while still retaining the ability to use yours, you'll be able to beat any boss.
- You can tell how much EX an enemy's ability uses by looking at the name of the ability. Similar to your character's abilities, it'll show up as the number of squares on the left side of the name.
- Of course, the above passes quickly so isn't that reliable of a method. As a general rule, you can expect that:
- Anything that uses an element other than Force likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that does multi-targetting likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that hits everyone hard probably costs 2 or more EX
- Anything that outright kills someone from full health, or makes you swear "Bullshit! That can't happen!" is likely an Exceed ability.
- Chances are it'll also be very flashy.
- Obviously, there's going to be some exceptions, but for the most part, this can be followed.

- Don't ignore Field Effects either. Bosses don't, and the Field Effects they use generally stack things in their favor. It's not just about dealing as much damage as quickly as you can. A lot of times, it's also about controlling the situation.
- Modes, Field Effects, and Boost ailments all stack. If you're creative, you may be able to create a situation where you can pretty much negate everything the boss throws at you, while tossing out Exceed abilities every turn. Bosses won't stand a chance.

MAP SAVE FREEZE: If you're changing things in this game in the editor and your save file freezes on the world map as a result, press F9, go to switch 112 and 113, and turn them both OFF. That should fix it.

Oh man, G-Quiz...
He seems to know Erin's size, rofl... and to know the sequel and the original Alter A.I.L.A., he sure knows how to smash the fourth wall.

Ha! Nice :P. "It's beginning to feel a lot like christmas.."
Hey, I'm a big fan of your games but is there an alternate download for this one? I downloaded, extracted, and tried to play but I keep getting the message 'The file System01 cannot be opened'

I'm kind of new to all this (the technical side anyways). I had a similar problem with the original AA where certain files for the first boss fight after the prologue could not be opened. I found an alternate download and it worked just fine so just wondering. I would love to play this one and I can't bring myself to even look at variant until I finish this >w<
(Socrates would certainly not contadict me!)
Open the game in rm2k3 check "system" if it's a black box there put something in it by clicking next to it. I hope this will work. Eventually download the folders you'll find here : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L36EO4NE.
I just finished this game... dude. ONE OF THE MOST GREATEST RM2k3 GAMES EVER MADE IN RM2k3 HISTORY! I respect you Neok.
YES!!! Finished the first phase (again)! (Though that isn't much)
I have played this game five times already, and it never ceases to amaze me. The graphics, the system, the scripting. I absolutely love it!
This game is so awesome. Oh yeah.
Simply Unique. I playing it again and this time have to finish. (My english is better and i understand almost everything here !)

Man you got big talent for matching music into game. Music is so cool.
This music on trailer blow my mind. Battle music and levels ambiences
cool contrast Cool games like this one forever.

i working on s-f techno thiller rpg/horror. This gives me some inspirations.
And the ability to summon the "Office Whores" to deal damage to the enemies.
Oh....FINALLY RMN puts this MASTER PIECE on the front page.\(^_^)/
I am Moana of Motunui. You killed my father. Prepare to die!
Oh....FINALLY RMN puts this MASTER PIECE on the front page.\(^_^)/
Ummm....this game was featured right after it got completed, dude.
I'd love to see a version of this released with voice acting. ...If you can ADD voices to RPGMaker, that is... I would not know myself. XD
Hello, this is my first time posting here. I played the previous Alter A.I.L.A. and loved, beat every path and got all (maybe) of the secrets.

I've beaten genesis, but I need some help in the orbital prison.

The 4th wall has been successfully broken, but nothing 'shows' for the first few rooms in the face maze, is that normal? Also, I've been throigh5 times, following what I should follow, but I never reach the area I should, any hint/tips?

Thanks for the help, and for the opportunity to play such an amazing game for free.

Alter A.I.L.A Genesis es un rpg post apocaliptico de esos donde el 99% de los robots son maquinas de guerra, y mutantes (humanos que por x experimento sufrieron mutaciones y ahora felizmente dedican su tiempo libre en atacar a los humanos).

Pues bien, tenemos a un dictador que tiene el control de toda la ciudad y al grupo de rebeldes que intenta derrocarlo y asi traer paz y tanquidad entre la gente. Nuestro personaje principal por acontecimientos desconocidos ha perdido la memoria y solo recuerda su nombre. Que raro que los personajes principales en los rpgs pierdan la memoria verdad? Rarisimo.

Talvez todo hasta qui pinta muy tipico, pero aunque ya se han visto juegos de esta indole Alter A.I.L.A Genesis nos ofrece una historia bastante interesante. Primero tenemos que escapar de la prision del dictador, para eso hay que pasar un torneo donde vas conociendo a los demas PCs y despues de unos eventos, al salir, en vez de unirse a los rebeldes y ayudarlos a derrocar al dictador malandro, nuestros PCs se dan a la tarea de hacer lo que muchos harian. Huir y buscar un lugar lejos donde vivir. El plan se pone en marcha pero estos son cazados por algunos de los mismos PCs que conocimos en la prision y de ahi se abre una fantastica historia que sin duda enganchara a, me atrevo a decir, cualquier jugador RPG.

La musica queda en perfecta sincronia con el ambiente (y ah! las rolas de batalla estan especiales). Graficamente el buen Neok se avento no solo los portraits de los PCs sino tambien, a modo de eventos durante las partes importantes, nos proporciona imagenes acompaƱadas de los dialogos al mas puro estilo del Phantasy star 4 (de Sega Genesis).

La mayoria de los juegos hechos en RPGmaker nos dan la tipica vista de arriba. Aqui Neok nos sorprende con un estilo side-scroll que le quedo muy bien. Y, oh, el sistema de batalla rulea. En ningun momento se vuelve tedioso ni mucho menos y toman un poco el estilo de los SMT/Personas, donde ciertos enemigos son resistentes contra algo y debiles contra otro. El juego en si tiene dificultad media.

En conclusion Alter A.I.L.A Genesis es un excelente juego que ampliamente recomiendo. Tiene sus detallitos como todo pero son facilmente perdonables.

Le doy 5 de 5 estrellas (He jugado bastantes juegos de aqui RPGmaker.net y este es el primero que le doy califcacion perfecta. Bien merecida.

If you go on a ladder when an enemy goes to attack you the enemy can longer attack you. Also i'm not very far yet but if the government has the ability to delete memoris why lock people up? Wouldn't it be better to erase memories causing them to do illegal things or the act of doing what was illegal instead? That seems like a much more merciful and just punishment to me. besides that the story seems good.
Good News: I just finished a guide for the Shard and Joker Locations. MASSIVE SPOILERS abound, it is suggested that you finish the game before even reading this. Do not blame me at all if your game play experience is ruined.

BTW Here's what I found so far in the Face Maze of the Orbital Prison Core:


2 Punks around door 5

Hoodlum near door 1

Old man near door 4

Rebel near Door 1

Beggar near door 6

Red Tuxedo Man near Door 3

Corpse in Front of Door 6


Backgrounds seen through doors:

Harbor, Stynx Prison, Underwater, City

Foggy Room
Red Mist Room
Glowing Eyes

Maybe the NPCs can give you an idea of your location?
Just gonna leave a small story here.

So there was a time where I wanted to beat the next boss in AAG. Then, what seemed like it was Fate's doing (and later did I learn that it was Fate's doing), the boss gave me an error that was completely hard to understand. Over. And over. And over. And it was all mumbo-jumbo numbers that made no sense.

Cut to almost six months later, I got back to it in boredom and in hopes to see if it actually worked... the boss battle worked. Inexplicably.

So, out of rage, I threw in this music in the battle.


In the end, I never really knew what the hell caused it. .-.

Hah! The little beeps during the battle transition really makes this.
Any clue on getting extra character Tinder?

Edit: Never mind. Forgot one's Joker.
Kinda hard to tell if you're missing a Joker when you don't know what Ability they give you. =/
