NOTE: Parasite Strike is memory-intensive and may run slowly on old computers.

Default: Arrow Keys move, C shoots, X drops bombs.
Controls can be changed to WASD + K and L in-game.
P - Pause (during a mission)
M - Mute (also available from options in-game)
Tutorial in-game.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just rediscovered this game. There's a surprising amount of hidden content in the game, and at first I spend SO much time customizing weapons in the hangar instead of playing, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I really like how the weapons can be mounted at ANY angle I want, allowing me to be a deadly turret of destruction or leave some homing missiles on when I'm not fighting bosses just so I'm sure I kill everything. Feels good and reminds me heavily what UN Squadron felt like back in the day. Also, I now have the music to play in my car.

Yeah, it froze when I beat it too.

Good game!

Very good game, but it could have been alot more.
I really like games that feature a upgrade system and the game works really well.

But for some reason its really short. 6 levels are not much.
Also LOL at the ending. Beating the final boss: Can't select anything anymore.

I feel if you invested a bit more time it could have been alot better.
Still a good game!!

"Parasite strike is loaded" keeps flashing while playing missions and is so distracting it makes the game unplayable. Im using chrome for ubuntu.

Im sure this would be a good game if i could play it.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


not bad, good upgrades and loved the side quests, it wasn't bad i just felt more could have been done with it. the ease that i bought everything was a little disapointing it made me feel there should have been more in there as far as the ships and gadgets go.
