It is the year 2084. You control a secret organisation charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your team, and dive head-first into the fast and flowing turn-based combat.
UFO: Alien Invasion
UFO: Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games, but with a twist. The game combines military realism with hard science-fiction and the weirdness of an alien invasion. The carefully constructed turn-based system gives you pin-point control of your squad while maintaining a sense of pace and danger.
Over the long term you will need to conduct research into the alien threat to figure out their mysterious goals and use their powerful weapons for your own ends. You will produce unique items and use them in combat against your enemies. If you like, you can even use them against your friends with the multiplayer functionality.
In Geoscape mode, the game is about base management and strategy. You manage the activities and finances of PHALANX, controlling bases, installations, aircraft and squads of armed-response troops. You will research new technologies and use their results in battle against the aliens. You will launch your interceptor aircraft to shoot down UFOs and dispatch dropships in response to alien activity across the globe. You can build, buy and produce anything you like, as long as your technology level and your budget will allow it.
In Tactical mode, the game is about taking command of your team in various missions to combat the aliens wherever they might appear. Instead of pushing imperonal armies around on giant maps, you use only the team of soldiers you have assigned to deal with this mission — the same soldiers which you have managed and equipped to your satisfaction in Geoscape mode. You may find civilians and other bystanders during the mission, being targeted and executed by the aliens, or just getting in the way while you are trying to protect them. It is a dangerous world, and some of your men will die.
Your mission objectives will vary for each mission, and there are many to perform as the aliens' terrifying plot unfolds. You will have to watch your back, be quick on your feet, and take the fight to them.
