G I Joe Strike Mobile Game iOS Android Backflip Studios Hasbro

After the initial soft-launch and the public beta of the game, Backflip Studios Inc. has officially launched G. I. Joe: Strike on iOS and Android.

HissTank reviewed the game before but the Developers have listened to the feedback by the fans and public to deliver a far superior product than what was originally there. We’ve noticed a highly significant improvement in performance and better quality graphics overall. We will be reviewing the game again later, now that it is publicly released.

You can take a look at the gameplay trailer, more details and the download links… after the jump.
