Atari's coin-op classic comes makes its Game Boy Color debut with Missile Command. In the year 2126, aliens from the Orion star system have attacked Earth. You are in charge of the planet's thermonuclear warhead supply and must deploy the missiles to repel the invaders. From Cairo to New York to Paris, there are 16 cities to save in total. Each city consists of six buildings and two missile batteries with 15 missiles apiece.
Aim a crosshair target in the sky and launch your missiles so that the resulting explosions destroy the alien warheads, satellites, scout vessels, and bombs. The game ends if all six buildings are destroyed. Points are earned for every alien you destroy, with bonuses awarded for intact buildings and unused missiles. Score 10,000 points to receive a bonus city. A rumble feature is built into the cartridge so you can feel the Game Boy Color shake with each explosion. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
