Atari Missile Command is an arcade game created by Dave Theurer and released by Atari in 1980. In this shooter game, the earth is under attack by aliens from the planet Kryto. The player’s objective is to protect six major cities against a relentless hail of Krytonian missiles. Move the crosshair across the screen to target the missiles and counter with your own rockets. The player can blow up the missiles before they reach their target. Fallen cities can be rebuilt if the player manages to gather a certain amount of points. However, the player’s three missile batteries can also be targeted, and when those are destroyed there’s nothing left to do but watch helplessly as the Krytonians destroy every last city on earth.
