Review STRIKERS 1999

Brandon Girod
9.7Excellent
Really tight and responsive controls, frame rate is perfect, the unlocks feel unique enough to keep the game fresh, the difficulty vamps up at a good pace
Bullet density in later stages of easier difficulties is still pretty dense, your fingers can get in the way of your vision
Scrolling shooters have always been one of my favorite genres, even though I haven’t actually spent a whole lotta time with them. It’s a genre I never really became interesting in until they had kinda fallen out of style. That’s why I’m glad to see games like Strikers 1945-3 for Android coming out to represent a completely unrepresented genre.
I recently played through Strikers 1945-2, which is the sequel to this game, and honestly, there aren’t too many differences between the two aside from the newest game simply having better presentation. That’s a good thing, though, because the game was already great so it’s good to see they didn’t do anything to mess up the original formula.
I did feel like the bullet density had increased slightly because in some of the later stages the boss’ attack patterns just seemed insane, even on the easy difficulty.
The controls are just as tight as always. My old complaint still stands, though. Since the game relies on touch controls that means most of the time your jet’s hitbox will be obscured by your finger and subsequently kill you at times.
Unlocks are a bit of a grind because you get gems as you play and it takes hundreds of them to unlock new planes. I was, however, able to unlock the stealth fighter after the first play through. Planes have slightly different attributes, so unlocking them can definitely change the way the game plays to an extent.
Overall, I think Strikers 1945-3 is a slightly better game than its predecessors, but they’re all pretty great to begin with. The controls are really tight, and the game feels like it came straight out of a time capsule from the early 90’s.
