Sector Strike shoots into the Windows Phone Store

Sector Strike

If you’re into space shooters, then you should check out Sector Strike for Windows Phone 8. The game has been available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry, but Windows Phone users now get to join the party. Sector Strike is a futuristic shoot 'em up designed to challenge your reflexes and wits.

Head past the break to watch our hands on video and gameplay.

The game mechanics should be familiar by now. Simply destroy the endless waves of drones in a campaign that takes you through four unique environments. Collect credits to upgrade your ship with new weapons, equipment, and abilities.  There are over 20 weapons and abilities such as hellfire missiles and call for reinforcements.

By default, you can control your ship by dragging your finger on the screen. The ship moves where you move. Avoid hitting enemy ships and the weapons they fire at you. After shooting down enemies, look out for power-up items and bonuses to collect. The ship can be equipped with cannons, torpedoes, beams, and orbs. The more of these you have, the more likely you’ll survive the waves of enemy ships.

At the end of each stage, you see your score. Before heading to the next level, you’re given a chance to spend your in-game credits. Don’t have enough? You can buy credits with real money. For example, 10,000 credits cost $9.99.

Sector Strike looks great. We like that the screen appears to shake when things explode. We also don’t have any complaints with the sound. The music goes well with the futuristic space theme.

Sector Strike is a free download from the Windows Phone Store, but don’t forget about the in-app purchases that might tempt you. Check it out if you have some time to waste and let us know what you think in the comments!

Sector Strike shoots into the Windows Phone Store


Damn,I just commented about the arrival of this game on my sticky thread"newly discovered games" half an hour ago and now I see it on the front page of wpc.Not sure whether I should be happy about being faster than wpc or should I be sad about not getting tip credits. Y U DO DIS?? ;____;

BAH!  Looks good but not available for my 900...

Guess I have to get a Nokia XL now...:D


Looks great! This will have to do until if/when DonDonPachi Maximum ever comes over from WP7 to WP8. Which I doubt is happening. Anybody hear about that game?

Hey, need "X"-like space games, like Galaxy on Fire and No Gravity. Enough scrolling shooters there...

Just looking at the image and skimming through the video of the gameplay reminds me of gradius / parodius lol.

Edit: downloaded it and its brilliant! Plus its free! If you can say no to a free game that only takes 19mb and whinge about it... Then you need a mental health check or something :P

I hope that someone noticed that this is based on the old game Space Invaders on Nokia 3310 (or something like that)
