Escalation is a downward spiral.

A nuclear armageddon is no one’s dream scenario. So choose your steps carefully, it’s a small path between war and peace. FIRST STRIKE is a great strategy simulation featuring snappy gameplay and an intuitive interface that makes dropping the big one as easy as ABC. But be sure to take the right measures to guarantee your people’s safety.

Pick one of the big nuclear players – from known Superpowers to an upstart hellraiser like North Korea – and plan your strategy wisely: Limited but clever options let you as the leader of your superpower steer your nation’s fate: Expand to other countries, build bombs or debuild in order to restructure your arsenal. Or use research to widen your options, such as: Ability to act quicker and build bigger bombs, better recon on your enemies actions, automated self-defense-sequences and many more.

Whether you’re a bloodthirsty warmonger or a tree-hugging hippie – it’s time to put your cards on the table. A quick and fun game with beautiful graphics, FIRST STRIKE shows you how little it takes to heat things up. With the tip of your finger you can control the destiny of the precious and vulnerable rock floating through space, the rock we call mothership Earth.

This Game would be perfect if.....


Now don’t get me wrong this game is fantastic, the graphics are great, the controls are awesome, but this game would be perfect with multiplayer!! Because just how the game works, it needs a multiplayer.
But also there is this really annoying bug that doesn’t allow you to save your progress! And other than that it’s great!

Update for mobile?


Is it possible you can give us the same features that PC players now have?

Needs save game ability


Solid game but can take 20-30 minutes. Without save feature it's very frustrating to lose all progress if you need to do something else for a while.
