To those that say you can't play Missile Command without a trackball, kindly go elsewhere.

This is a pretty fun version of Missile Command, which, even though the easiest game on this compilation, it's still tougher than the arcade original.

You have to defend six cities with two missile bases and limited ammo from missle attacks, aircraft and smart missiles. What makes the game hard is that there's already aircraft on the first level, and then smart missiles on the second! At least John Dondzila made taking neighboring missiles out easier, since one explosion can create another nearby one, taking out 3-4 or more, which is a very satisfying thing.

Only problem is that, with only two bases on the far left and right sides of the screen, eventually you're going to lose one to enemy fire once the going gets fast, and then you're dead meat (plus there doesn't seem to be any bonus cities any more once you hit 70,000?). You'll still have fun until you get there, though, and the sound effects and graphics are really good. 8/10
