XCOM®: Enemy Within is a strategy game where you will face various enemies, including aliens. You will take advantage of the number of troops you control and complete the tasks that each level requires. At the same time, the environment in the game is entirely detailed, and you can take advantage of the elements in it to implement your strategy. After each level, new ones will appear for you to choose from and upgrade.
UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT FALLING TO THE CATCH SURFACE
At the beginning of the XCOM® game, the player will see an utterly mysterious object falling over a city. It was utterly bizarre until many people approached. Suddenly, a green curtain of smoke appeared, and it scared everyone around. At the same time, there are victims of this incident, and it is also the basis for a mysterious organization to take action and solve related problems. It is your chance to get close to the aliens, and indeed, they are your enemies.
You will confront these enemies tactically by controlling a certain number of characters equipped with certain weapons. The environment in the game is entirely detailed and beautifully designed that can attract any player to experience. At the same time, it also has a similar perspective to other strategy games to observe the environment. There will be signals for the activities of the aliens so that you pay attention to your tactics.
DEFEAT THE ENEMIES AND COMPLETE THE LEVEL
The soldiers you control in XCOM® all have weapons, and you will be able to move them to any location on the map that you feel necessary. One element that you will need to prioritize is a new resource introduced in this game, Meld. You can easily see this element at the first level and need to move a person close to collect it. Then you start the war against some alien enemies.
You will not see them yet, so controlling the character will need to be careful, and most players will choose safe hiding areas. After a few turns, these aliens show up, and the characters that can attack are those close to these targets. Each character has a feature to choose from, which is to attack enemies within a specific range. The red face icon that appears on the right side signals the player’s chance to attack.
COMPLETE QUESTS AND UPGRADE SKILLS
One feature you’ll need to recognize is that you can take advantage of multiple locations in the XCOM® environment to attack your enemies. You can freely move if it is within your range and there are things to hide. In addition, each level has a specific goal that you must complete, and when all are completed, the game screen ends. At the same time, you will also receive a rating of what you did and the number of casualties in that battle.
After each level, you will sometimes receive new elements that can be upgraded for characters, new research, or building a base. You will have a certain amount of money to use. If you’re not sure what to choose, it’s a good idea to take the time to research them. At the same time, you also find new upgrades for the character, and most of them are new skills that aid your battle with the enemy.
