These cities are under attack! Only you can protect them in Atari Missile Command!

The classic arcade game returns in this thrilling version that features retro '80s graphics. You can play it right from the comfort of your own home in your favorite browser, no quarters required! It's just one of the awesome titles that you'll find waiting for you in the Atari Classic collection.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to defend six cities from a barrage of missiles, some of which can split into multiple pieces! How long will you be able to hold out against what could become an endless onslaught? You’ll be able to fight back against the bombardment with your own missiles, but watch out! You’ve only got a limited number of them, so you’ll have to choose your targets carefully and use perfect timing.
