A mysterious terrorist organization named N.I.T.O. has alarmed the international community. Their factories and oil refinery production has suddenly gone up and there is talk about the manufacturing of nuclear warheads. In order to stop them, the military decides to send a single helicopter in to destroy the N.I.T.O. facilities and weaponry.

AirStrike 3D is vertically-scrolling shooter featuring a single helicopter. The game world is fully in 3-D and can be played at a slanted 3-D angle or a more traditional "top-view". Before choosing a mission, the player must decide which one of 10 helicopters to use, each with different capabilities. Once in flight, this helicopter will fire at swarms of enemy opponents and installations, uncovering power-ups while doing so. The exact effect of the power-ups changes depending on the helicopter being used.

There are 20 levels to complete, 100 different enemy units, 5 types of hostile terrain and 3 powerful terrorist bosses to handle.
