IMG Reviews UFO: Alien Invasion

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the open-source project UFO: Alien Invasion. The game is based on the gameplay elements of the popular X-Com series of squad-based strategy games for the PC. Here's and excerpt from the review:

The gameplay is separated in two parts. The first is a base building phase where you construct a base in a location of your choice. The location is very important, as it has to be in an area where it will be easy to get to anywhere the aliens drop by. Once you've found a suitable location, you are given some funds and the foundation of your base is built. You then have free reign in what to build, who to hire and what equipment to make. You can build research centers to research new technologies, build manufacturing areas to create new weapons, ranging from knives to bazookas as well as creating vehicles such as a transport helicopter to get you to the aliens and support fighters to protect your valuable crew inside that helicopter. You can buy new helicopters and fighters that are specialized in different areas, such as having more space for troops or a long range fighter that can quickly intercept aliens wherever they may be.
