Software News   Software News : UFO - Alien Invasion for AmigaOS4
   posted by afxgroup on 23-Nov-2010 14:26:07 (7423 reads)
UFO - Alien Invasion has been released and can be downloaded from Amigasoft.net web site.


---------------------------------------------------------

General

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 is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games, but with a twist. Our 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 our multiplayer functionality.

UFO: Alien Invasion. Endless hours of gameplay — absolutely free.

The game takes a lot of inspiration from the X-COM series by Mythos and Microprose. However, it's neither a sequel nor a remake of any X-COM or other commercial title. What we as a team wanted to make is a brand new experience that tries to surpass the quality of games from 1992, rather than simply recreate them with flashier graphics.

We also believe that open-source projects don't need to be disorganised or badly-managed. We work together in a friendly and professional way, with a clear vision for a game that we know is worth playing.
---------------------------------------------------------


Warning.

* On systems with 64MB video card you could have the usual texture problem. You have to wait the new w3d drivers that will resolve this problem.
* If you have problems during launch of the game and your partition is using an SFS file system please try to test in on a JXFS or FFS partition

Wow - is this guy doing a Home World conversion? I know it's old but I'll be interested in that.

Will be this game playable under SamFlex 800, or it will crawl like Battle of Wesnoth (it's too slow) ?

Too bad, as it seems a really nice game.

I'm trying to install the map files from the (2.3) Windows installer, since they are missing from this archive. No, I don't have a program to compile map files with.
