It's the 22nd century: Galactic travel is commonplace, peace is at hand, and the
future looks bright - until Goldfire's plan to unleash an army of military
mutants shocks the galaxy. Dr. Goldfire, a brilliant bio-scientist whose morbid
research led to incredible genetic improvements in humanoids and aliens, has
gone power crazy.

And only the galaxy's best agent, Blake Stone, has a chance to infiltrate
Goldfire's secret fortress on a remote planet, and end the evil before it's too
late. Up against absurd odds, and the most hideous genetic creatures and armed
personnel ever amassed, it's up to you to help Blake in his most dangerous
mission ever, classified: Planet Strike!

Requirements:

- 68020 CPU (28+ MHz recommended)
- AGA chipset or RTG card
- 4 MB Fast RAM (2 MB w/o music)
- AHI (v4.18 recommended)
- Blake Stone Planet Strike registered

For systems close to the minimum requirements it's recommended to disable the
floor/ceiling textures and lighting under "Switches" in the game options. It's
also a good idea to turn off the music in the Sound settings.

The game will use the Music Unit for sound playback, make sure it's properly
configured in the AHI prefs. The recommended mode is "Fast 8 bit mono" or
"Fast 8 bit stereo++" at 11025 KHz. 

RTG is supported, the game will bring up a screen mode requester at startup.
To suppress the requester and force a natice screen mode, you can either of
these tooltypes:
- FORCEMODE: filters the available modes via the mode name. possible values:
             PAL, NTSC, DBLPAL, DBLNTSC, EURO36, EURO72, SUPER72, MULTISCAN
- FORCEID: forces a specific mode, the value is a Mode ID in hexadecimal format

The game supports up to 3 buttons on joysticks and 4 buttons on CD32 gamepads.

The game is still available to purchase:
https://3drealms.com/catalog/planet-strike_21

Installation:

Copy all the *.VSI files except CONFIG.VSI into the drawer. The game needs the
1.00R or 1.01R registered version.
On the first startup the game will render AdLib sounds and music into samples.
This can take a while depending on the machine speed. To restart the process,
delete the "adlib" drawer. You can also run the convert-sounds tool manually to
convert any missing sounds individually if needed.

The Amiga port is mainly based on NY00123's excellent gamesrc-ver-recreation,
with some bits and pieces from refkeen and Boris Bendovsky's bstone port. The
AdLib music and sound conversion is done using Nuked OPL3 by Nuke.YKT.
