We posted just the other day that Amiga were rolling out some old school games for BlackBerry 10 which was great news. However, I picked up my PlayBook last night and saw that the games were also available on the tablet. I remember Desert Strike from the good old days so I had to grab it.
If you are looking for the best graphics on a game then you have come to the wrong place - but that's the whole point of these Amiga games. They are reproducing great content from some years ago and I suppose for many folk, including myself, it's a bit of a trip down memory lane.
If you are not familiar with Desert Strike (or you are not as old as me!) it is essentially a helicopter shoot-em-up style game. You fly your chopper around the map shooting the bag buys and their missile turrets, but you also need to pick up stranded troops using your ladder that will descend from the helicopter when you hover over them.
You have three different weapons you can toggle between so the standard cannon is great for wiping out foot soldiers but you may be wise to switch to rockets for larger targets. Although I played it on the PlayBook I suspect it may be more popular on the BlackBerry Z10 so you can grab the link below.
Overall the game is worth the £2.00$2.99 I paid if you fancy reliving your youth and blowing up some bad dudes. Give it a go - you will enjoy.
