XenoSquad is a 3D turn-based strategy game with a futuristic setting. You lead three space marines through missions that pit the brave soldiers against a variety of hostile life forms. Click on a unit to take command of it. The green cells represent a unit's possible moves, yellow cells show where a unit can attack from, and red spaces show which enemies a unit can attack. Your units can interact with objects with hand icons, such as doors and crates. Crates contain credits and ammo. Between missions, you can spend your credits on new weapons, and improve your units' attributes if they have skill points available.
