Description

Thomas Jentzsch has created versions of Atari's Missile Command that work with the Atari CX-80 Trak-Ball, CX-22 Trak-Ball, Atari ST Mouse, and Amiga Mouse. This allows you to play Missile Command for the 2600 that is more faithful to the original arcade version, which also utilizes a Trak-Ball controller, or with a mouse which is even more enjoyable (in our opinion!)

Thanks go out to Eckhard Stolberg and SS, who provided valuable testing support for Thomas.

 
What's New
  • Trak-Ball/Mouse instead of Joystick support
  • Different Trak-Ball/Mouse speeds (normal, fast, kid)
  • New variations that allow two-player games with one Trak-Ball/Mouse
  • Very slightly changed font to better match arcade version

    There are six different versions of Missile Command TB, which you can download here:

  • CX-80 Trak-Ball and Atari ST Mouse (NTSC) & nbsp;(PAL)
  • CX-22 Trak-Ball Version (NTSC) & nbsp;(PAL)
  • Amiga Mouse Version (NTSC)  (PAL)
