  • Summary: Intense air and sea combat! Take command of your navy fleet and air force firepower to destroy the enemy!

    AirStrike Defense combines the intuitive controls of a line-drawing game, the fast paced tactical and strategic elements of an RTS game, and the addictive gameplay of casual gaming,
    all of which blend to create a unique and fun new experience.

    Using touch controls, you take command of a full naval strike force of air and sea units. Navigate fleets of ships, including battleships and destroyers, and defend them from oncoming enemy air strikes. Guide attack planes to execute bombing runs in order to destroy entire enemy fleets.

    Employing these tactics, you engage in full naval battles in which you attack enemy naval units with your air force, while simultaneously defending your own fleet from enemy attacks. Your survival depends on your ability to wipe out the enemy, before they eliminate you! This fast-paced gameplay involves quick reflexes, evasive maneuvers and precise attacks.
