Atari Classic ‘Missile Command’ Is Coming Back As A Mobile Game


In 1980, Atari released its classic video game – Missile Command which became one of the best-known classic video games. And now, on their 40th game’s anniversary, the company announced to release a modern take on the original for mobile devices.

Today, Atari announced that Missile Command: Recharged will be coming to iOS and Android devices which can be launched anytime in the springs. As far as the changes go, the gameplay of Missile Command remains almost the same as it was earlier. The player must fire missiles as counter-measures to falling enemy missiles in a bid to protect the cities. However, Recharged Atari decided on a brand new and very bright neon look while also introducing some new gameplay features.

Tony Chien, VP of Marketing for Atari, commented, “Missile Command: Recharged aims to reinvigorate the storied Missile Command IP by appealing to fans of the original arcade and classic console releases … Fans can expect the familiar and addictive missile-destroying gameplay but with modern mechanics optimized for touch-screen devices. Missile Command: Recharged is a perfect pick-up-and-play title for short high-intensity gameplay sessions.”

The new gameplay features include powerups adding defensive measures, silo repairs, and a screen-clearing blast. With all the points you have collected during the game, you can use them to upgrade “all aspects of gameplay,” although it’s unclear exactly what that means right now.

The game also includes an achievements system and global online leaderboards to add some competition to the game. Furthermore, there’s an augmented reality feature that projects the gameplay on to a virtual arcade system.

As mentioned above, Missile Command: Recharged will be launching soon in the springs and will be available via Google Play Store and App Store for the respective platforms. This game will be available for free but will contain some ads which can be removed permanently by doing a one-time purchase.
