Blake Stone: Planet Strike (also known as just Planet Strike) is a sci-fi first-person shooter developed by JAM and published by Apogee for the PC on October 28, 1994.
The sequel to Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold (and, in similar vein to Spear of Destiny), Planet Strike consists of a single 20-level episode with new levels, monsters, weapons, and gameplay mechanics (such as a new level goal, new weapon graphics, destructible ammunition packs, and a flexible mini-map).
Set in the year 2149, nine years after the events of the game's predecessor, players are put back into the boots of British secret agent Blake Stone. Years after a failed five-year manhunt for elusive mad scientist Dr. Pyrus Goldfire, intelligence uncovers suspicious activity in the abandoned STAR Institute Training Complex on the planet Selon. Blake is brought back for Operation: Planet Strike, in which he must infiltrate the complex, fight a brand new army of mutants, and attempt to stop Dr. Goldfire once and for all.
The game never received a demo or shareware episode, and was later re-released (running under DOSBox) via GOG.com, the 3D Realms website (both separately and in the 3D Realms Anthology bundle) and Steam (from both the Apogee Throwback Pack bundle, which also includes the predecessor and Rise of the Triad: Dark War, and the 3D Realms Anthology - Steam Edition bundle).
