Combining a global strategy with small squad tactical combat, the challenge offered is to fight against an alien invasion. Featuring run time generated tactical missions with innovative simultaneous combat action; the genre is also enhanced with strong RPG elements, offering a quite unique mix of strategic ideas.
RPG - Your soldiers will become better as they gain more experience Strength, Agility, Dexterity, Willpower, Intelligence, and Perception of your soldiers. Each point added will improve their battle skills and even add new tactical options.
Strategy - Manage your bases, R&D, interceptor aircrafts and battle squads. Territory equals power so the more you control, the better your interceptor coverage will become. As your R&D budget grows you will also gain access to advanced weapons and armor for your aircrafts and soldiers, and perhaps will even be able to reproduce a UFO or get your soldiers some psychic abilities.
Tactics - Fighting on the ground against aliens and mutants for control over territories. Once you control a territory, you can decide what type of base you want there: Research, Military, Manufacture or Biomass repulsion.
Combat – The game’s real-time combat system features an interactive pause mode. While in pause you can give your troops very detailed orders taking as much time as you like.
