Before you play the Missile Command game, you will definitely want to know these simple but useful tips and tricks. If you have any tips feel free to share with us!

Things to Know Before Playing



  • No, you're not imagining things, the missiles really are switching speeds. To compensate for it, keep in mind that your middle silo fires faster than your outside two.
  • Only go for the bombers/UFOs on the first few stages, otherwise focus on the missiles, as the bonus you get from repeatedly saving each major Californian city outweighs the points a moving target will get you.
  • You can launch missiles with pretty much no delay. If you see a large group try firing a couple of missiles at them, the resulting explosions may cause a chain reaction, taking them all out.
  • This game will give you nightmares. It gave its own Programmer nightmares.
