A low budget and unpolished XCOM with some gameplay differences

Shock Tactics borrows a lot from the XCOM titles when it comes to look and gameplay but with the lower budget isn't going to offer much in the way of cosmetic changes to soldiers, voices, music, and the more cinematic camera views of the new XCOM games. You are on a planet that you have not explored yet and must fight alien life and pirates, after 200 turns a better equipped force will assault the planet giving you more difficult adversaries to face. In between combat you can build up your base and upgrade it to give you access to new equipment and can explore the planet by moving around the map in an ATV to discover locations and new missions. If you are really interested in another XCOM style game and you have tried out the player made additions to XCOM 2 and Xenonauts (and the demo to its sequel) then this game might interest you, though it can use some patches.
