One of Atari's most famous games, that has appeared on all their home consoles. the aim of the game is simple, you are at the base in the middle of the screen, and must fire ordinance upwards to destroy missiles heading to four cities that surround you, this becomes more tricky, as more war heads split off, and carefull aim must be taken, as ammunition is limited, and often more than one missile needs to be taken down with one shot.
The game really was a product of the cold war time, with the threat of nuclear attack hanging over society.
