Escalation is a downward spiral.

A nuclear armageddon is no ones dream scenario. So choose your steps carefully, its 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 peoples 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 nations 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 youre a bloodthirsty warmonger or a tree-hugging hippie its 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.

Fixed that for you, since it will be out tonight in the US and today is tuesday, so it will be out tuesday night.

Edit: Price should be $3.99 in the US as there is no $3.79 price point in the US appstore.
