Fans of turn-based strategy games have twice as much reason to be happy these days: gamigo is gearing up two games, Jagged Alliance Online and UFO Online – Fight for Earth, both from series that players know and love, for closed beta testing. Although both games follow the same basic principles and can be played in a browser, the objectives of the two games could not be any different.
UFO Online – Fight for Earth is starting today and focuses on PvP battles between the three factions competing for global domination. Territories are conquered by defeating players from other factions or aliens. Another important feature is crafting and enhancing weapons and other equipment. Players will need to keep expanding their headquarters to gain access to better opportunities.
On the other hand, Jagged Alliance Online will follow in a few days and is aimed at players looking for awesome AI with a variety of behavior patterns and exciting missions. Players choose their favorites from a pool of more than 60 mercenaries and then equip and train them in the expandable headquarters. PvP content will be added to the game at a later date.
Registration for beta testing can be found on each game’s official website:

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
