Planet Strike is the sequel to Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold. It was developed by JAM Productions, and was released by Apogee Software on October 28, 1994. Apogee released the game's source code under the terms of the GNU GPL v2.0 in 2013.
Planet Strike was distributed by FormGen, and was Apogee's first game released in retail. Although no shareware version exists, the game could also be ordered directly from Apogee. FormGen later distributed retail versions of many of Apogee's earlier games (including the original Blake Stone) which were previously only available by mail-order.

After Dr. Goldfire's escape at the end of the previous game, British Intelligence initiates a large-scale search to capture Goldfire. For many years, no trace of the crazed scientist could be found. However, in 2149, Dr. Goldfire is discovered in an abandoned training facility near the former STAR Institute. He is once again building an army of powerful mutant creatures, in another attempt to enslave humanity. Blake Stone is sent to stop Dr. Goldfire and end his plans once and for all.
