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.

Great game but some minor improvements

First Strike is a great game but I think that there can be some minor improvements that would go a long way. One of them could be a way to select multiple territories at once or select them all so that I can make a missile in multiple of them at once without having to tap on all of them. After playing for an hour I have to quit because I am tapping stuff so much and my hand and fingers hurt so that feature would really help. It would be cool to be able to change the colors of stuff too because when I play it is sometimes hard to see where the individual territories are at because if they were damaged or something and it is night time it is hard to see. Maybe highlight the borders or change the color of territories that you own a different color. Other than that the game is fun to play. Sometimes the little touches make the gameplay so much easier.

Blindfug Please Read This!!!

Evening Blindfug, I’m going to be straight forward, you need to go about a smarter way with this. Why do I care you ask? Because is an extraordinary and unique game! As a consumer I have come up with a way to satisfy both consumers, and producers. Here’s my plan: 1). Remove all in-game-purchases along with a big and exiting update, and get Apple Arcade to show it off for a good advertising strategy. In result you will get thousands of more people to play this game and perhaps others made by your company. 2). Produce merchandise that attracts your many fans (consumers) and make your money to make new and improved First Strike. The more the consumers enjoy the game the more they will support and buy from your company. 3). Repeat. Use the earned profits to make new updates alongside with Apple Arcade supporting you. Apple is a big asset for this plan considering how big they are. This benefits them to so don’t worry about them declining your offer. Use the earned profits to finish and refine the game to its peak and create more attractive merchandise. 4). Be patient and wait for the enjoyment of your fans and your money rolling in. Note: use popular social medias to advertise too. That’s were people spend most of their lives :D. (TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit) I think this will benefit everyone. Personally I think this is a great plan. But then again I am only 14. Sincerely, Your biggest Fan

Great game…. at least it was until recently

The first time I played this game was around a year ago. It was very fun and enjoyable with many different countries to play, as well as many different weapons to use. One thing that kept me towards this game was it being free to play as well as the endless fun that the game brought. Upon recently downloading the game to reminisce on the fun memories I made with it, I stumbled upon a pay wall, while this didn’t prevent me from playing as a few different countries, it limited the amount of weapons I could use as well as the different countries that were available. This doesn’t mean it was it wasn’t an enjoyable experience, but it greatly limits what you can do. I would be fine paying a premium to get extra countries, but what they offer is a monthly subscription plan, but my main issue with this is that they’re charging you more money than before and not adding any new content at the moment. If this was changed to a one time purchase I would consider buying it, but at the moment the game is not very enjoyable and doesn’t have much content for new players, especially considering the multiplayer the greatest, because there aren’t many players. Overall a great game, that would be better if it gave more content to new player, or at least offers a one time purchase to get additional content.
