First try 4,250

 

Fun game, but I still haven't figured out the rebound shots for when the force field is impenetrable.

 

I accidentally pushed the fire button after the game ended, which reset the game before I could take a screenshot :dunce:

From the manual:

 

HELPFUL HINTS

Protect and defend your cities.

 

That's not actually a hint. That's just the objective.

4,400 for the moment, and just as in Gorfy's case: no screenshot. This is a tough game to control with cursor keys, but I like the concept.

 

(edit): New score: 7,170.

"Have you ever been playing Missile Command and thought to your yourself, you know, I could really use a game with something less?   Sure, Missile Command gets all the props, but do you really require all those high priced features?  Multiple shots on the screen at once?  Simultaneous explosions?  Who needs it!  You can protect your cities and show off your single shooter prowess at the same time!  And now, you can do it all for one low, low price!  Step down to Missile Control!  Order before midnight tonight!  Not available in stores!"

Didn't have a lot of time to play.

Thought it could have been good with the break away brinks.... then the bank shots turned me off.

Missile Control (1B) 11830.png "Good" +1!

 

Man, this gets gruelling!  Pretty much all I could do was just position the cursor in one spot and shoot each time a missile comes, waiting for the occasional rebound shot to hit.

 

I liked this game at first but it's not a good sign if the game starts to bore me right when I first start getting better at it.
