Released during the cold war era, Missile Command involves protecting six cities and three artillery bases from a Soviet nuclear attack. As missiles rain from the skies, players use a trackball to maneuver a gun sight around the playfield while blasting away. Shots, which expand upon detonation, are fired from the artillery bases. Satellites and bombers also appear in the terror-filled skies, just not as frequently. After an attack has been warded off, another wave begins. Ammunition is limited, and when all six cities are destroyed, it's "THE END" of the game. Innovative control, frenetic gameplay, killer sound effects, a daunting theme, and strategic aiming and firing combine to make Missile Command an all-time classic. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
