UFO is as legendary a game as perhaps Dune as well, and it can rightly be called the mother of the whole genre of games — turn-based tactical RPG. Fighting for the freedom of the earth from the alien threat is free and Linux.
Like the original X-Com UFO: AI has 2 modes of play: Geoscape mode you see the planet from space, monitor and attack the alien ships; Tactical — tactical mode in which you control a group of militants fighting with the aliens on the planet’s surface in the landing or the fall of the downed ships.
As usual, initially you got the awkward squad of armed anyhow than. As the game progresses by winning, you get a new alien technology, research it, invent new weapons and develop the combat capability of the detachment.
