AirStrike II: Gulf Thunder is a sequel to AirStrike II, an exciting 3D indie helicopter combat action game. While following in the footsteps of the original, this time round there is a lot more depth in the gameplay and visual and other special effects have been fully optimized.
The centerpiece of AirStrike II: Gulf Thunder is a new terrorist base, well defended and cleverly designed to make any head-on attack pointless. This time around, the terrorists created a new monstrous weapon and a new type of explosive. Naturally, the only way to stop the destruction is to annihilate the opponents while they are on the move. After this is done, the player has to carefully plan the assault on the core base, which is defended by the towers and is fortified with a new type of metal alloy.
AirStrike II: Gulf Thunder has 24 new levels. There is a whole lot of desert flying to do because this add-on is Iraq-based. The battle scene is littered with burning oil barrels and is packed with industrial objects where sneaky terrorist land units can hide to gain the advantage. All 3D objects are remarkably well designed and bear a distinct AirStrike II style touch.
The choice of helicopters in Airstrike II: Gulf Thunder is limited to 3 iron birdies, with the difficulty level increased a couple of notches, in order to please even the most demanding hard-core gamers. Even diehard helicopter simulator fans are likely to get hooked on the game instantly.
As in previous installments of the franchise, there are briefings with the general who points out mission objectives and gives hints how to outsmart opponents.
