Missile Command

Missile Command is a bit of an oddball game. It’s more of a defense game than just about any other game I’ve ever played. It’s quite simple, you have to defend your cities against an incoming hail of missiles with your own stockpile of missiles by hitting them in mid-flight. If one of the enemy missiles hits a city, it’s gone, and if you lose them all you lose the game.

The game’s not real hard, but it’s also not real engaging. I played for several evenings, and ended up racking up a respectable score… that’s now lost to the mists of time. After that I shelved it, and haven’t really thought about it since.

    I loved this game as a kid. I have rolled it over on numerous occasions.

    It was a pretty good game, but I’m always perplexed as to why it seems to be left out of ‘classic games’ collections and ‘game history’ shows.
