Urban Strike is a 1994 side-scrolling shoot 'em up video game developed and published by Electronic Arts for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. It is the third in EA's Strike series, which includes Desert Strike and Jungle Strike. The game was initially released on April 18, 1994, in North America and later in Europe on July 15, 1995.

The plot of Urban Strike revolves around the player taking control of an AH-64 Apache helicopter as they fight against their enemies in a variety of urban environments across the world. Players are tasked with completing various missions that involve destroying enemy targets, rescuing hostages or VIPs, or gathering intelligence information. The game features both single player and two-player cooperative modes.

Gameplay wise, Urban Strike plays similarly to its predecessors with players controlling their helicopter from an overhead perspective while shooting enemies with their weapons and avoiding obstacles like buildings and other structures. The player has access to three main weapons: rockets, machine guns, and bombs that can be used against enemies such as tanks, helicopters, boats and more. In addition to these weapons there are also power ups that can be collected such as extra lives or speed boosts that allow the player to move faster around the map.

The game also features a variety of different levels set in urban environments such as cities, deserts and jungles. Each level has its own unique objectives that must be completed before progressing to the next one; for example some missions require players to rescue civilians while others may involve destroying enemy bases or collecting intelligence data. There are also bonus levels where players can earn extra points for completing tasks like shooting down certain types of enemies or rescuing hostages within a time limit.

Urban Strike has been praised for its graphics which were considered impressive for its time period; however some critics have noted that it does not offer much innovation from its predecessors in terms of gameplay or visuals. Despite this it remains a popular title amongst fans of the series due to its fast paced action and exciting levels.
