Missile command is considered as a front runner in the golden age of arcade games.

You could always hear this machine in the arcade and were drawn to it by the flashing colours on screen. 

It was a two-player game with frantic controls as your littered the sky with ballistic missile’s using your trackball controller! 

If you failed to keep your cities defended then the “game over” was replaced with “nuclear holocaust”. This was a pleasant change to the norm which added an extra bit of class to this manic shooter. Simple graphics and sounds which were super loud and bright but the gameplay was off the scale! You could always hear this machine in the arcade and were drawn to it by the flashing colours on screen.
