DescriptionEm@il Games: X-COM
is a turn-based game played over email loosely based on the original X-com game. The units and weapons are similar. The graphics are basic but clear. The major difference is the game-play of course, which is very simple. Each player controls a squad of randomly assigned troops, you have limited action points and move/fire options. Whoever kills the other sqaud wins, no research, no campaign type options, just single map games.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
As of May 1, 2001 Infogrames shut down the servers that handled the email transactions that took place in this game. This effectively makes the game useless for anything but collecting value. Infogrames was asked if a patch would be coming in the future that would make the now defunct servers bypassable so play could continue. They replied that it was not possible. However, in 2002 an independent coder created a couple of patches that allow players to play the game without the official server. These files were available here
