Major Stryker is another of Apogee's attempts to make a commercial-level shareware game. It's a rather typical shoot-'em-up vertical scroller with EGA graphics.

Freeware release

Apogee released Major Stryker as freeware (without support) March 14th, 2006. The registered set can be downloaded at ftp://ftp.3drealms.com/freeware/strykerfw.zip.


The first real appearance of the familiar "Apogee theme song" was in the game Major Stryker.


  • The hero, Harrison Stryker, is related to Duke Nukem, another character from Apogee games.
  • Several references to the movie Aliens are made in this game. Like the high score list is stocked by default with names of characters of this movie. And the line "Game over man" what the player will hear when he loses all his lives, is a direct lift from the same movie.
