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.

Needs Final Hour

This game is pretty good I must say, but it is lacking in comparison to its much more advanced twin on PC. There is really no reason why you can't bring Final Hour to IOS, so why not do it?

Also, maybe some nerfs and buffs need to be placed in on some of the super weapons. The Cobalt bomb, the Tsar bomb, the Laser Satellite, and the Air Defense Dome are all quite underwhelming when you compare them to the other, much better super weapons. The Stealth Bomber and the Infiltrator are a completely different story, as they are both game winners that your enemy can't do anything about. Basically it's "Tap a country, wait 5 seconds, this country is now dead/in your command, wait 5 seconds, repeat.

Needs diplomacy and multiplayer

I like it very much for its unique game design and easy to learn format, but:
1.It needs multiplayer. I think you could run a server every
~10 minutes (or less) where a multiplayer game is hosted of 12 players, one for every nation. At the beginning of the game, players select their nation. There should be no attacking for one minute, so players with countries like North Korea or Iran can build up their countries. The winner does not get anything, but it's fun anyway!

2.Diplomacy. Just like final hour. I don't need to say anything more.

3. India & Pakistan should be separated. Don't they hate each other? plus India should get the Territory just right of north india because it is partly Indian.

Nice game

I love this game but hopefully you can add the features from final hour like the new super weapons or the diplomacy and I still have some old bugs like when I try to play 10 countries at once but only 9 show up even after I updated the game but other than that I hope you guys keep adding features to it
