X-Treme Strike © 1994 Virtuality.


X-treme Strike immerses the player in perilous intergalactic warfare requiring nerves of steel. You must fly your attack ship to defeat the enemy defenses on the planet below, battling through ever increasing defense waves.

You are equipped with a head mounted targeting sight and unlimited firepower. Watch your fuel gauge, these guys don't take prisoners. The better you are, the further you get and the longer you play.

Probably the ultimate in inter-galactic challenges!
