By the year 2084, only one city on Earth can support human life: Mega-Primus. The rest of the planet has been contaminated from
past wars with aliens, resulting in an atmosphere filled with deadly toxins and a completely altered climate. Mega-Primus was
built as the solution to this disaster, functioning as a self-contained city that would shield its people from the environmentally
While everything was peaceful for decades, recent increases in violence and crime suggest that something is wrong. If that
weren't enough, sightings of UFOs have picked up and people are starting to flee to other colonies. It's only a matter of time
before complete chaos erupts! Sensing this danger, the Senate has secretly agreed to support an investigation to determine if
aliens are indeed behind the unrest.
X-COM: Apocalypse is the third game in the X-COM series on the PC, which began in 1994 with X-COM: UFO Defense. You must
once again lead the X-COM unit to investigate the mysterious happenings from an isometric viewpoint, only this time it's set
within a futuristic city.
Send your squad into various buildings (after first assigning them to vehicles such as hovercars) to either find evidence of the
alien presence or engage in combat to retrieve their technology. Your goal is to recover as many artifacts as possible so your
scientists can find ways to defeat the aliens once and for all. In a departure from the last two games in the series, the tactical
part of the game can be played using either turn-based movement or in real time.
From the Manufacturer: A squad-based strategy game that follows on Microprose's classic X-COM franchise. You control a small
force on the offensive against an alien invasion. The game consists of a series of well-designed missions that require a carefully
thought-out strategy. In between missions you must maintain your base and develop new technologies. A good touch is that you
can choose whether combat is real-time or turn-based.
