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.

A very good game

I’ve been playing first strike for years. I have all the super weapons and all the countries unlocked. I love the game I usually play it everyday because I don’t have much to do on a virtual school day. Ever since it got fixed the game has been running smoothly everything works the restart button the quit button everything. One thing I do have a problem with is when you have an an enemy on 2 sides. Like when I’m Europe the United States and China are in the game, they will only target me. That and how long the ads are when you wanna instantly do the research. Also a tip for anybody who wants to research but the ads take too long what you can do is press on one of your territory’s and then watch the ad. That way the game slows down s lot. That also goes for the research and building of the super weapons. With so many other counties maybe you can add some to the game like maybe Canada, Turkey, Mexico, just giving examples. Also I can’t wait for March 10th I saw the update video First Strike Developers, have a fantastic day/night 👍

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry, we can’t control what exactly gets shown in the ads. A premium version of First Strike without ads exists, if you want to continue to play the game. ->
And maybe we can help you with giving tips on how to get all the superpowers. You can write to us with your concerns via this email:

This game is trash

This game is a waste of time i played before multiplayer I understand the game I just had the worst game experience of my life I had to fend off the rest of the entire world trying to jump me from the very beginning as soon as we started because people just have their friends join and when I took out 4 other players that were bigger than me and took over their land it was down to two and they were both just shooting me they didn’t move or anything the whole game just researched and nuked me and had iron dome so everything I sent got stopped and they both expanded and expanded and that was the most brain dead experience I’ve ever gone through I feel like I actually lost brain cells from trying to understand that logic I was 95% of the world with nukes but the two 5% players demolished me without any chance for me because I was busy defending myself no way I could research even tho I was using more land they already had nukes when u started research I was in 4 wars because they were playing together they killed everyone else and I was the last that wasn’t one of them have fun getting brain damage when ur winning u understand the game and how to take over the world then some tiny noobs just use iron dome and jump you and no matter how hard you try does no good oh yeah it also randomly stops working and glitches so you can’t play and have to restart(happens literally every other time you open the app)

Hi, I have a suggestion for First Strike, a free Chinese version of the APP Store in China. Suggested that the Chinese version of the game for free, can have a multiplayer game mode such as online networking is not a computer, but the real players to interact with the players of the game and play, also suggest to add more fun game model, and the content, including more game state as more countries will make the game more fun at the same time to optimize the game map to countries or regions become more stereoscopic 3 d, etc., and the store account because the game is not a account to log in, this game account set and there is no way to store the clouds, It will cause the problem of losing data when adding again after uninstalling the game. I hope it can be improved. It is also suggested to set up game servers in Melbourne, Australia and Canberra, as well as In Beijing, China. These are my current Suggestions. At the same time, it can speed up the update of all game versions in APP Store in China. Thank you very much! 0.0
