Description of X-COM: Terror from the Deep

A must-have for any strategy and wargame lovers, Terror from the deep is quite similar to UFO, but have more various sceneries, is more complexity and a bigger longevity. This X-COM got more plans, more guns, bewitching music and formidable AI (too much sometime). Some bad points: interception phases can be laborious sometime, the game interface is still messy and the game is not in S-VGA!

Tons of time is necessary to play it, beware!

The PSX version was PAL-only, so it would make sense to have an Italian option. Can't speak for the Dos, though.

gohulface 2015-02-22 -2 points

is the game even in Italian? i had it for PS1 and the game had italian language, but i bought it on steam the other day and there isn't the italian language....

Got this in college when it was new, and played it for 2000+ tactical missions. Amazing I didn't get all D's those two years.

I haven't played this game in many years and just wanted a good old blast from the past.

Seushimare 2013-10-11 0 point

the best advice would be for you to get windows based MS-DOS emulator. im using DOSBOX and the game works fine with it, just read readme included with this software. its simple and easy and works for anyone.

T-Com Troller of the Deep

you could also make a dos boot disk, put the game's files on another, boot from the disk and play it that way... although the sound would be messed up and on new pc's it would be waaaaay too fast.

DerTyp65 2013-04-18 0 point

i have a problem too in the strategy parts the game is way too fast

GB 2013-04-09 0 point

I have problem getting sound to work. Any advice?

@weynerest: First grab the patch (, then extract it somewhere.
Ignore TFTDCD files. Copy only TFTDHD folder, TFTDHD.EXE and UPDATE.COM files into your game directory. Double click on TFTDHD.EXE and when it finish extracting data, run DosBox, navigate to your game directory, type in command line: UPDATE HD and press enter.
You will see the process of updating.

waynerest 2013-03-07 0 point

Gybyterian, can you share what and how to patch it to v2.1?

Gybyterian 2013-05-02 0 point

Also, remember guys to patch it to v2.1, I had to do it because I could't research magnetic navigation. Patch solves so many bugs.

@Emmanuel Goldstein: If you have problems with speed of the game, configure DoxBox to your liking. This worked for me:
Change number of cycles if needed.

I've tried many versions of xcom2, and always there were some issues. This one however runs like a dream!

Smoijuto 2013-02-11 0 point

When I try to unzip it, it gives me something about encryption. I am uneasy to hit yes, what do I do?

Emmanuel Goldstein had that problem too. Either run it in DosBox or pick up the X-com Collector's Edition. I did both.

Emmanuel Goldstein 2012-10-29 0 point

I love this game but I'm having a problem in the battle screen-- the mouse zooms around super fast-- I don't know how to slow it down... anyone have this problem?
