X-COM: Terror from the Deep - The sequel


X-COM: Terror from the Deep is a DOS science fiction tactical strategy game, the sequel of one of the most popular DOS games in history X-COM Ufo Defense. Terror from the Deep was designed by Stephen Gross (the X-COM original being designed by Julian Gollop) and was published by MicroProse Software back in 1995. Terror from the deep doesn't change the winning formula of the first game: run an X-COM base, develop your tactics in away missions and try to discover everything about this new alien menace.
