I completely missed them. Of course, not having Internet at home anymore doesn’t help... I'm WAAAAAAY behind on my LAF reading ;)

So awesome! For some reason for me, the cornfield really evokes the old X-Com scenes as much as anything! lol

Thanks guys!  It's a retro campy game that should take you back to the 90's and those days of sitting in front of the computer waiting to find out where the aliens will jump out next.

Everything is very square for a reason  :)  It's been a fun project.

Agreed. I think it's just that so many of my brave soldiers died in cornfields in the original game that it stuck in my mind. All in one mission as well. lol

Again, great stuff!

Yep. Loved X-Com. Somehow my first try I did it right and got the massive armoured suits with guided rockets etc. When I tried it again, I just couldn't recreate what I had done!

Still it was fun. I hated the damn snake aliens the most!
