Missile Command is a 1980 shoot 'em up arcade video game developed and published by Atari, Inc. and licensed to Sega for Japanese and European releases. The player's six cities are being attacked by an endless wave of ballistic missiles. You must save the cities by fending off enemy attacks. Aim your three cannons a free will and destroy enemy artillery. But that’s not all. Planes drop missiles and mortars, drones with special explosives and evading missiles! With each 10.000 points you will earn a bonus city. When all cities are destroyed it is game-over “the-end”. With each advancing level your points will get a multiplier of x1, x2 or even x3. For each city that survives you will earn 100 points, and for each remaining missile 5 points each. Here you get to enjoy a classic arcade experience with enhanced game-play for mobile devices and impressive modernized graphics. Have fun!
