LunchTimeWaster: Missile Command

LunchTimeWaster: Missile Command

Missile Command used to be played with a trackball. Now you can play it at the new Atari Arcade from within your browser — complete with HTML5, multi-touch and multiplayer support in Internet Explorer 10. It also works great in any other modern browser. Image

Celebrating Atari’s 40th Anniversary, Atari Arcade lets you spend your lunchtime playing updated versions of legendary games like Asteroids, Combat, Centipede, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout and Yar’s Revenge. Look out for new gameplay features, real-time battles, updated graphics, plus Facebook and Twitter integration.

Think you’re a Missile Command champion? Leave your top score below. Hint: Alternate between fingers and aim slightly in front of the missiles for higher success.

If you’re a developer, check out the Atari software development kit to build your own games on the Atari Arcade platform. It’s the beginning of a new class of touch-enabled web experiences powered by Internet Explorer 10.


  • I played missile command with trackball at the Melbourne video games expo a couple of months ago….nothing beats that, besides asteroids with that lit-up bright display. Legendary!
