Mission: Defend Planet Zardon with Atari’s “Missile Command” for Xbox LIVE Arcade
Considered one of the great classic video games from the Golden Age of Arcade Games, Atari’s “Missile Command” comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 this Wednesday, July 4 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. Pacific).
While staying true to the original arcade classic, the enhanced “Missile Command” for Xbox LIVE Arcade has players acting as regional commander of three anti-missile batteries defending six cities in their zone. As Planet Zardon is under attack by an endless hail of interplanetary ballistic missiles from Krytol, players must act fast to fend off the missiles and keep their cities intact. Gliding across the sky, players complete levels by taking out all enemy weaponry. At the end of a level, players can earn bonus points for the more cities that remain and the fewer missiles that are used.
“Missile Command” will be available worldwide for 400 Microsoft Points and is rated E for Everyone.
