Atari announces Missile Command: Recharged. A new version of the 1980 classic. The game will be released in the spring for Android and iOS. The game is free and contains ads and there will be an option to disable them for a fee.

Atari is releasing the new game in honor of the original’s 40th anniversary, the company writes. Missile Command: Recharged is made by Nickervision Studios, a developer that also has other retro-style games to its name.

The new Missile Command game comes out for iOS and Android and is playable on both tablets and smartphones. Atari has released some screenshots and gifs showing the new version. The concept is the same as in the forty-year-old game: players must defuse incoming missiles and counterattack with their own projectiles.

According to Atari, the new version of the game is made in such a way that it is suitable for picking up and playing. The makers promise ‘short intense gameplay sessions’. The game will feature power-ups that will allow players to upgrade all kinds of aspects. Missile Command: Recharged will be released in the spring and will be available to download for free. There will be an option in the game to turn off advertisements for a fee. What that will cost has not yet been announced.

Missile Command is originally an arcade game, first released in 1980. A year later, the game also became available for the Atari 2600. The game also appeared in 1995 for the Nintendo Game Boy.
