UFO - Enemy Unknown (1994)

PC Game | Windows/Dos | MicroProse Software, Inc. | 3,36 MB

“ Where do I start with this jewel? It is suffice to say that this game is still being bought on CD-ROM versions all over the world, and has lost little of its popularity since the day it was published.

UFO Enemy Unknown, or perhaps better known by the name of X-Com 1 is a strategy game where your job is to stop the alien invasion and threat to earth. You start off by building a base somewhere on the globe. You are initially given 3 crafts, 2 for intercepting airborn UFOs, and one with crew for getting rid of ground alien troops and survivors of shot-down UFOs. The base is also equipped with research, manufacture, radar, defense etc. facilities.

Each month you get fundings from every continent. The amount of money you get depends on how well you have controlled the alien threat on a certain continent. As the game progresses, you research new weapons, either from recovered aliens and their artefacts, or just normal earth weapons. The ground combat is turn-based, but nonetheless very dynamic and interesting.

I could go on talking about the game's features and possibilities but its just easier to download it and see for yourself. I can safely guarantee you that you will not regret it. It is one of my favorite, if not THE favorite, DOS game ever! This is the CD-ROM version that should be run from windows. It goes together with a patch that fixes graphic problems on Windows XP and some other system platforms. Download and enjoy!
