Description

This release of Siberian Strike includes the whole story and features all the levels which where previously released in two parts as Siberian Strike and Siberian Strike: Episode II. The goal of the game is the destruction of the Stalin-Bot, a crossbreed of Stalin and the future MIR Space Station, who owns the vodka producing company Stalinka Corp. The company is behind a communist invasion because they produce genetically engineered vodka that completely annihilates the willpower of those who drink it.

To do the job, the player can choose between one of three pilots and airplanes at the start of the story mode. While Eliza McCampbell's R-51 Thunder is the fastest plane in the game, it's not very powerful. Pappy T. Wilder on the other hand uses the B-27 Sicarius, a slow but powerful bomber. The third pilot is Eliott Freeman with his balanced P-69 Conquest. Each plane also features four different paint-jobs which need to be unlocked first by playing through the game with that plane. In addition, additional difficulty levels become only available after killing the Stalin-Bot.

The main part of the game is a vertical-scrolling top-down-shooter. The player moves his plane around the screen in order to avoid the enemy projectiles while firing all available cannons and collecting the power-ups dropped by destroyed enemies. These include more powerful weapons as well as extra lives or a shield which makes the player immune to all damage for a few seconds. If the player destroys a group of enemies who all belong to the same squad, a medal drops. Once the player has collected 100, an additional continue becomes available after all his lives have been lost, allowing him to get right back in the game - although without all the power-ups he had upon death. Most of the levels feature one or more bosses.

In a few levels, the game switches to a third-person-perspective. Here, the player's main goal is to avoid the many obstacles in his path while the game automatically targets the automatic turrets along the route. The player just has to press a button once targeting has been completed. These levels also don't feature any power-ups.

The game features a Wi-Fi-multiplayer-mode in which two players shoot their way to the Stalin-Bot cooperatively.
