Missile Command is a 1980 shoot ’em up arcade game developed and designed by Dave Theurer who also created the vector graphics game, Tempest. Players use a trackball to defend six cities from intercontinental ballistic missiles by launching anti-ballistic missiles from three bases. Talking about the inspiration for Missle Command, Dave Theurer said “That was the whole point of the game… to show that if there was ever a nuclear war, you’d never win.”
The three available options to choose from are the base Missile Command X RepliCade which costs $139.99. The Missile Command X RepliCade Field-Test Edition costs $169.99. You could also get 1 of each and get the base version and the Field-Test Edition for $279.99.
Both cabinets will feature the exclusive TRAK-BALL XL that provides fast and accurate control as well as the new CRT-FX, a convex, transparent lens filter that transforms the LCD screen to look like a CRT television. The Field Test Edition includes special features like a Field-Test sloped control panel, a Field-Test light-up marquee panel, and an Atari triple slot metal coin door. Those who preorder during the presale period can also receive a free Missile Command mini arcade poster while supplies last.
After the presell event ends, the base version will cost $149.99 and the Field-Test Edition will cost $159.99.
