I suggest you download this game now to experience a great alien adventure game.
UFO is a nice unofficial clone of "UNO" card game marketed by Mattel that was popular in the early 1990s and still retains a sizable following as one of the best "family" card games. ... the hand is over.

At least it has Whilst and Oh Hell!, a couple of fun card games that not many other card games offer.
A poor man's Empire, UMS is a very ambitious abstract wargame that attracts a minor following among hardcore wargamers, but fails in the bigger market. M. Evan Brooks sums it up in his synopsis: "A ... easy to use, with full controls over terrain features and unit placement.

A superior sequel to Rainbird's Ultimate Military Simulator (UMS), UMS II: Nations at War features improved campaign mode, and much more control over units. Veteran wargamer M. Evan Brooks defends the ... that it did not destroy one's hard drive and had some interesting design concepts." Definitely worth a look from hard-core wargamers, although noone should expect it to be another Empire.
"A tactical simulation of World War II infantry and armor; it was open-ended with a versatile map maker and scenario builder." Better than AH's previous efforts, but can't hold water to to Gary Grigsby's early games that SSI published.

An overlooked gem, Maxis implemented the intriguing "genetic engineering" AI in this game long before Tamagotchi and Creatures caught the public's imagination :) A defected scientist has turned ... island.
