About the Game:

First Strike is a ten minute, fast-paced realtime strategy game. You control one of eleven nuclear superpowers on earth and have to strategically conquer, research and attack global nations while defending yourself from missile attacks. The game is designed ground up for tablets, so you can interact with the globe using the touch screen and gestures.

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 real-time strategy game 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.

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.

Features:

- Play as one of 11 nuclear superpowers against up to 10 enemies

- Playing on a 3D globe with a beautiful view onto the earth

- Custom made for touch interfaces: fully controllable through gestures and contextsensitive menus

- 4 branched tech tree to research powerful recon, capability, efficiency or weaponry upgrdes

- Makes you think why we still carry such a large nuclear arsenal with us in this day and age

First Strike launches on 12.3.14 for iPads and Android Tablets. 

The launch price will be 3.99$. 

1/4th of the revenue if every copy sold will go toward the worldwide reduction of the nuclear arsenal by supporting ICAN and Greencross.
