First Strike Game, the popular real-time strategy (RTS) title for iPad that puts gamers in control of defending their home nation in an international thermonuclear war, is set to launch for the iPhone on June 26. The news comes direct from the app's developer, FEINHEIT GmbH, which published a post on the application over at TouchArcade's forums. In it, the developer explains that First Strike Game is set to go universal while also receiving "a load of content" before the end of the month, including:
Bug fixes and performance improvements will also arrive with the 1.1 update, too. First Strike Game was highlighted in our daily "Today's Best Apps" column, and my colleague Casey Tschida celebrated the application's "WarGames" feel, its 3-D graphics, its "dramatic soundtrack," and its simple (but effective) control system. Priced at $3.99, there are no in-app purchases, mobile advertisements, or consumables in First Strike Game. Plus, since the application's 1.1 update will bring universal support, owners of the app won't need to pay a separate price in order to enjoy First Strike Game on their smartphone. As mentioned, First Strike Game 1.1 should make an appearance on the App Store on June 26. You can download the application for $3.99, and as of this writing it's optimized for the iPad only.
