Missile Command: Recharged is a modern take on Atari’s arcade classic

Missile Command Recharged

Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the arcade classic, Atari has announced Missile Command: Recharged for Android and iOS devices.

Missile Command: Recharged is a reimagining of the original arcade game, built from the ground up for mobile devices. Players must defend their base from an endless barrage of missiles and launch counter-missiles.

“Missile Command: Recharged aims to reinvigorate the storied Missile Command IP by appealing to fans of the original arcade and classic console releases,” said Tony Chien, VP of Marketing for Atari.

“Fans can expect the familiar and addictive missile-destroying gameplay but with modern mechanics optimized for touch-screen devices. Recharged is a perfect pick-up-and-play title for short, high-intensity gameplay sessions,” Chien adds.

Recharged will have a powerup system, global online leaderboards, and achievements. It will be free to download with ads. There will also be an optional one-time purchase to play ad-free. It will be available on the App Store and Google Play later this spring.
