Take it from someone who's played a lot of the old games, "Missile Command" was as good a game as Atari ever created and still pretty colorful...for 1981.

The object: you are in charge of three missile bases and must shoot down all the incoming missiles from overhead as well as the enemy craft that slip past every so often to drop their payload. Save all the cities around you from getting blown up and you'll get more points each round.

I don't know of anyone who ever got a perfect score every round of this game. I mean, who could? You'd have to be EXTREMELY well-coordinated to man the missile buttons and make sure you have enough in reserve for the next wave of attacks. Not an easy thing to do.

Believe me, I've lost a lot of quarters trying.

Ten stars. Get in "Command"!
