Linux Game News chose UFO: Alien Invasion as the best open-source game in their turn-based strategy category. Linux users should check out the other winners for some good games in this under-served OS.

"This game offers amazing strategic depth and requires the careful and logical planning of every attack, defense, base building, research funding etc. Fighting is conducted through a turn based system where you control your squad using the move or attack points of every unit in a square map. There are many different weapons to use, and as you progress more things become available through technological research.

If you played X-COM as a child and you have some free time now, you should give this game a try!"
