X-COM - Terror from the Deep is the follow-up to the resource management and tactical combat game X-COM: Enemy Unknown.

It has been 40 years since X-COM last defeated the aliens. Now, in the year of 2040, aliens begin to appear on the Earth again. This time the threat to humanity is coming from the depths of oceans.

The game is almost identical to the original X-COM game. The user interface, weapons, and aliens are all the same. The only difference is the adaptation of the aliens and weapons to the ocean environment. The game features both undersea and on-land missions, and is significantly harder than its predecessor.

Awakened by the cosmic emissions of their brothers, the vast chambers of innumerable species begin their re-animation cycle. X-Com must face a new terror, an army of aliens that are already here, but in an environment more deadly than deep space. The aliens of the depths are well prepared to take on man in all the oceans, even bringing the war onto the land. Enter into combat in a strange and alien world, use new technology to enable the war to be taken to the enemies. Arm your troops for an encounter the likes of which man has only dreamed of in his worst nightmares....

A vast sleeping enemy has awoken. When the colonization vessel T'leth crash landed on Earth some sixty five million years ago the emergency systems placed the aliens in suspended animation. A distress call was sent but never received by the alien's homeworld. Over the eons the computers have awoken small groups of aliens to attempt a colonisation, but the strategies and devices have been imperfect. They have also been sinking ships over the centuries, to plunder their cargoes and recover gold - the base metal in the hyper-alloy Zrbite.

  Manufacturer's description:

2040 AD. Alien craft are spotted breaking the surface of the world's oceans- Liners are sunk and ports attacked. X-COM are tasked to investigate the sea-based terror and you, as Commander, are in charge. All-encompassing strategy, heart-stopping suspense and terrifying face-to-face combat. Come on in! The water's deadly!
