Target Games Limited developed the DOS science fiction strategy game Laser Squad in 1992. Laser Squad is currently abandonware, runs on DOS and can be played in single player, multiplayer (hotseat) modes. It's available for download.
"I think half the attraction of the game is the suspense element and the intellectual ego-massage you can give yourself when you do finally defeat the computer (who plays a mean game). Laser Squad has that elusive blend of excitement, challenge and addictiveness all mashed into one. Definitely on the short list for all time classics and deifinitely the best strategy game you'll find in the shops today" - Zero Magazine (1989)

Interesting but i loved the C64 version better, its simpler graphic and cleaner style made it more appeal to the eyes. The PC version wanted to be look good but failed to achieve it, also the faces kinda uncanny valley. But maybe just my nostalgia speaks. :)
