    If you liked Wolfenstein 3D from id Software, you'll love this new space adventure that uses the same 3D technology licensed from id Software itself. Welcome to the 22nd century! The future is here and the ingenious Dr. Goldfire threatens to unleash unspeakable evil on the galaxy. This brilliant bio-scientist has developed an army of military mutants through his ghoulish genetic research. Poised for attack, Goldfire's hideous horde awaits his command to unravel the universe! Only you, as Blake Stone, the galaxy's most invincible agent, have the brains and brawn to kick them out of the cosmos.

    It's the 22nd century, galactic travel is commonplace, peace is at hand, and the future looks bright. Until Goldfire's plan to unleash an army of military mutants shocks the galaxy. Dr. Goldfire, a brilliant bio-scientist whose morbid research led to incredible genetic improvements in humanoids and aliens, has gone power crazy.

    Only the galaxy's best agent, Blake Stone, has a chance to infiltrate Goldfire's secret fortress on a remote planet, and end the evil before it's too late. Up against absurd odds, and the most hideous genetic creatures and armed personnel ever amassed, it's up to you to help Blake in his most dangerous mission ever, classified: Planet Strike!

    Once again, British military agent Blake Stone will find himself in a life or death struggle for the control of humanity's future. After a five year manhunt for the elusive Dr. Goldfire, the search has ended.

    The trail has led Blake to the planet Selon, and to the abandoned STAR Institute Training Complex. If the reports are correct, then Dr. Goldfire is alive and has once again created a fiendish army of evil mutants. Blake is going to need all his wits, skill, and the best firepower money can buy to put an end to Goldfire's plans. Blake's mission is clear - he must use all his resources to destroy Dr. Goldfire before he can unleash his new army of mutant creatures on the universe.
