Introduction, setup, requirements

Side-scrolling action series Strider began way back in the late 80s, and following a quick sequel in 1990, it was resurrected once in '99. 15 years later, it's back again in the form of a reboot simply dubbed Strider. Its release this week is more special because it marks Strider's debut on modern PCs.
