The Swarm: Strength in sheer numbers, swarm aliens increase their Attack rating by grouping up while also reducing agility of their targets as they out number them.

The Hive: Strength in unison the hive aliens are weak alone but increase armor, attack, and agility the more of them are grouped up. Units on the same space activate together and perform as one unit. In attacks the hive aliens throw one attack for every alien in the hive formation (The hive formation requires 3 minimum hive aliens)

These are the core traits atm of these two alien race types my game Containment. Would appreciate feedback.

Just make sure there's a clear distinction between those two, because they're obviously pretty close.

The Swarm: Extremely fast these aliens have low armor but high agility and have the ability to utilize dark spaces and ventilation systems to sneak up, surround, and overwhelm landing teams. Swarm aliens can all afflict the poisoned condition to reduce the agility of their targets. The swarm also have an extra attack for every 2 units to 1 landing team member in the same zone.

Bee-hive

Hi and welcome to the forums.

The 2 names you have chosen are actually linked.
A hive has bee's in it. And outside the hive, a group of bee's is called a swarm. This system is used for the Zerg in Starcraft.

Having 2 distinct aliens is ok. But I think you should name them differently. Perhaps just go with 2 weird alien names. Just as simple as the Xyz. And the Qwer might do.

Cheers, X3M

I plan to give them actual xeno names, these are just placeholders while I sort out core mechanics.
