    I've always, always, always had UFO (and Transport Tycoon and one of the Civ games) installed on any PC I've ever had.

    In fact, off I go once more...

    (It really is amazing, even now)

    I got the game loaded up and it asks me for the 8 digit code from the instruction manual on page 103 or some shit. That's the end of that then.

    I just copied the one from the example and it worked.

    I've never heard of that site before though and there's a few cracking games on there. I think im gonna be sinking a fair few hours on there.

    EDIT: Thanks Kosmos i'll give it a try. I did think about trying that but I thought that would of been way too obvious and didn't bother.

    My base just got attacked and i lost 7 people. Then, having thought I'd won the day, a second hover tank turned up.

    I quit.

    Or you could just, like, press enter and play. Don't have to write anything at all. :)

    This - LOADS of brilliant retro games on there, without the need to fidle about with emulators. Actually, could a mod rename the thread to "F**ktonne of awesome retrostuff - in your browser"? :)

    I think a lot of the stuff on there is abandonware, but yeah - can't see it lasting long, unfortunately.

    i think some of it is abandonware so the copyright doesnt apply anymore or something (its some vague thing like that) but im sure some of them are still under copyright

    Jesus Christ, forgotten how bastard hard UFO was. Just started a mission:

    "Jorge Moriata is under alien control".

    "Chris Bradley has panicked".

    Moriata then proceeds to shoot 3 of my own men, with the 2 hovertanks JUST OUTSIDE my plane killing another. 2 turns in, and I'm 5 men down, with another one in panic. OK then...

    S' on Steam for pennies, might as well get it there. You get all the others in the series with it too.

    Are all versions of UFO equally difficult or are there selectable levels?

    I don't recall the Amiga or PS1 version being super hard.

    There's difficulty levels, but even only the second one is bastard hard.

    Aye. IIRC the 2nd easiest level is "experienced" or "veteran" - and they're not kidding...

    Haha! just had to reload twice myself when a rookie on one load, then a veteran on another got mind controlled.

    Having a complete blast with X-COM: UFO defense. Only played last couple of days, but have 5 bases already. Just upgraded one with 3 labs to do all my research in.

    "Cry much" I think he should be over it by now, I hope.

    This is a long shot I know, but is there an android version of this or something similar? Would be nice on the nexus 7 I think.

    OK found one called UFO: Alien Invasion but it's very buggy apparently.

    Probably not, as RedSparrows was moaning about the difficulty in the other thread.


    I think that will be up to 2K, they have the rights to the franchise now.

    You could probably emulate it - dunno how well it would work though. I'd be surprised if some nerd hasn't done it already.

    Was I now? It must have been missed in all the pissing moaning someone did about a game they never played.

    I love the difficulty of Xcom, you great big baby.
