App Description

The smash hit follow up to 1984's 3D Starstrike!

☆☆☆ This game is also available as part of the Spectaculator, ZX Spectrum Emulator app (as an in-app purchase). Spectaculator also includes the other Realtime classics, 3D Starstrike and 3D Tank Duel. ☆☆☆

This is the original ZX Spectrum game by Realtime Games Software running under emulation with 100% accuracy.

After the failure of the Outsiders' invasion plans (in STARSTRIKE) the aliens retire to their homeworlds to rebuild their strength. The Federation decides to launch a pre-emptive strike and sends in a new model starfighter, the Starstrike II, piloted by (guess who?) you...

Your task is definitely non-trivial - 22 planets to be neutralised, divided into Agricultural, Industrial and Military categories. Each planet has a control system in charge of the work droids and factories of that world; destroy the control system and the planet is put out of action.
