A testament to the popularity of Microprose's classic series, the turn-based strategy gameplay can now be experienced using Pocket PC devices. Pocket UFO is an excellent freeware to have if you're always on the move.

Gendo Ikari recommends downloading version 1.24, since it's the most stable. (Thanks!)

Name: Pocket UFO
Developer: SMK Software
Category: Strategy
Type: Freeware

Unfortunately, the actual version (1.25) has some bad bugs, the most evident that you can't set the timer on grenades, they are useless. I also heard of other bugs that can cause random loss of some objects, and also of floating difficulty - but since the game is still considered a beta and there no selection of difficulty, this is mostly due to the actual state of the project.

Anyway, you can download PPC version 1.24 here:
