"X-Com: Terror from the Deep" is the 1995 follow-up to 1994's "X-Com: UFO Defense," created in six months when the publisher, MicroProse, decided it wanted to capitalised on X-Com's success. As a result, Terror from the Deep is almost the exact same game as UFO Defense, except for redrawn graphics and a different premise. Terror from the Deep is a DOS game, making it a good fit for the DOS emulator, DOSBox. It requires slightly different settings than the usual emulated game.
