Electric Adventures, The Games – Missile Command
This is the 29th video in a new series where I am going to highlight each of my classic games I wrote for both the original Spectravideo and MSX computers.
In this video we move onto Program Pack XI and my take on the arcade game Missile Command.

This game introduces some new techniques, using the powerful Draw command to display complex shapes and I think plays quite a decent version of the arcade game considering it is written entirely in Basic.
