You are the commander of an elite Strike Team aboard the warship, HYDRA. Your first combat mission will have you leading your team in vicious ship-to-ship battles against the Sethari, a mysterious alien race whose soldiers are genetically bred for war.

In Strike Team Hydra, you are the commanding officer of a squad of soldiers from the far future. Command each warrior and use cover, suppressive fire, advanced weapons and iron will to defeat the enemy. Always outnumbered, your soldiers will depend on your tactical brilliance to prevail.

• COVER: Use barricades and barrels as cover for your soldiers. Less conventional force fields and tachyon fields can also grant a tactical edge to those that hold them.

• SUPPRESSION: Use suppressive fire to pin enemy soldiers in place before finishing them off in close assault or with a well-placed grenade.

• ACTION POINTS: Every action, including movement, attacks and special abilities, requires action points. Spend them wisely to achieve victory.

• MORALE: Your soldiers and the enemy are affected by their courage and determination. If the battle goes well, they fight with grit and determination. If it goes badly, they will focus more on saving themselves than the mission at hand.

Play through a campaign featuring 28 intense firefights including various mission objectives and grueling boss fights. An additional 20 combat missions are available to hone your skills.

*** Requires an iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad Mini 3 or newer. Will not work on earlier devices.

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the encouragement and support. We have 3 new games in the works that will all launch over the next year.

Great Turn-based Tactical Game


Lots of depth in this good-looking and very absorbing game. The Action Point system takes a few games to get used to but once you get the hang of it, it adds a ton of depth. Lots of replay-ability with the different teams you can build.

I hope the developer keeps releasing updates because there are some bugs in here still.

Developer Response
