"Laser Squad" games thread (eg. "Evil" )

Hi, yesterday I came across a great game at youtube.
It was called "Evil", a turn-based strategy game, freeware.

I was really impressed because of its fantastic graphics.
Download link: (external link)
The author says it's the same genre of "Laser Squad" and "Lords of Chaos".
Then I watched those longplay videos, however,
I couldn't catch how to play at all!
At least no one had played those games in Japan,
so there are no articles in Japanese at this time.
Document file has loads of English sentences, I got tired.
Is there "step by step" guide or video for beginners?

This genre games' list is here.(HOL)

I think you will find that this genre is quite similar to Japanese games such as Front Mission and Super Robot Taisen.

There's also (Der) Langrisser clone called Death or Glory: Das Erbe von Morgan. Sadly it's german only.

Also "tactic" gameplay is in Hero Quest, Hero Quest II and Space Crusade.

You can also look on Paladin and Paladin II.

There's also turn-based shareware game Total Chaos, similar to Lords of Chaos, but on smaller map (one screen), easier interface and much more spells.

Task Force is a good PD/shareware game of this sort http://hol.abime.net/5205

Front Mission 3 on the PSX is fantastic. My favourite turn based game ever.

@OP. Check out Xenonauts. An update of the original Xcom. It goes very cheap on the indie game sites.
