Kids in bed...wife not home til later...time for some MISSILE COMMAND!!!

21,445 game 16

"Juggling" those smartbombs are a pain in the @$$ & can really use up your ammo. I took about a dozen shots at one before it finally succumbed.

Tried to better my score again (didnt happen) but had it out again w/ a smartbomb- it hovered over my
last city & I unloaded all my ammo at it, juggling it, depleted my ammo dumps, & knocked it out of the sky with my FINAL bullet.

Missile Command (Game 4, Difficulty B): 27,775

I had a real tough time with those at first. It seems to work good if I aim directly in front of them. Still, there's times where there's one right above one of my bases and the explosion is just pushing it back without destroying it, and I have to keep pushing it until the round ends. Definitely a challenging mode, but very fun.

I don't believe anything back in the day was written to use the trackball controller in anything other than Joystick Mode.


The 400/800 cartridge version of Missile Command works in (T)rackball mode.

Im assuming the built-in version on the XEGS does too.

Still no working 2600 at hand, so I had to use emulation (keyboard controls :thumbsdown:...) to at least get on the board. I'd be damned if I miss Round 1 altogether. Not gonna happen.
