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.

Customer Reviews

GREAT game, worth the price

I've had this game for three years and I still actively play it. I still use the Tsar but the new super weapons are great (especially the satellite; to the infiltrators are more of a nuisance). For a few dollars it's worth it because you can play it over and over and retain the feeling of destroying the world. There are some little issues- sometimes it doesn't save achievements right away; it takes a few games. But this game is great at conveying its message about war. When the war begins, all the regions are pristine and the borders are clearly defined. But as the world is bombed out, it turns black and it's almost impossible to territories are whose anymore. When the war is over, the planet is a dark and burning mess. For another improvement, I'd have a domestic bar on your nation. The more enemy cities you destroy/missiles that hit your nation, the more distressed your citizens would be. If it reached a certain point, your country would have a revolution and you would lose. The bar would gradually go down, and could be toggled on and off. Overall, this game is definitely worth the cost and you won't be disappointed if you buy it!

Amazing Game! ~ Just some suggestions.

Personally, I'd say that this is better than Plague Inc. Period. Smoother graphics, amazing gameplay, and it never gets boring. But I just have a few suggestions. Can you add a feature where you can choose your enemies instead of it being random? I'd find that pretty cool so I could pair up USA vs China vs Russia. Oh, and another thing, can you please add a feature that instead of 2 enemies being the minimum, can you make the minimum 1? That way, it could be like a 1v1 nuclear war? I'd find that pretty cool. And, one last suggestion (Sorry!) could you add more types of weapons of mass destruction? For instance, a huge army that can expand really fast and take over land that is already occupied by other superpowers? That's all I want, really. But aside from all of that, it is an amazing game and it is practically FLAWLESS. But it wouldn't hurt for improvements, now would it?

AMAZING GAME-just a few things

Ok, this game is absolutely amazing. It was definitely worth the price. I've played this game sooooo much. The gameplay and the feeling of the need of survival mixed with a game all about blowing stuff up is creative. I'm looking forward to playing this game more and the future updates along with it. Now some suggestions could be more super weapons. I mean don't get me wrong there all good especially the TSAR. Yes lol big BOOM. But it be cool to have a wider range of superweapons. And maybe a extra rocket or two to use in-game. But big suggestion. Maybe a multiplayer mode it would be pretty cool dominating offline and online. That's all I got to say thank you for this amazing game it's definitely worth I love this game.
