Missile Command: Kickin' ass for 30 years

The year was 1980. The Empire Strikes Back was #1 at the Box Office, Solid Gold and Magnum, P.I. made their television debuts, and Diana Ross was rocking “Upside Down.”

30 years ago a little game known as Missile Command starting stealing countless hours and quarters from the youth of America. As part of the celebration this new multi-player flash version is now available (and you don’t even need quarters this time around to loose countless hours you could be using to do something “productive”).

So break out that Rush mix-tape, (pop open that 2-liter of Shasta if you’ve got it), and enjoy yourself a little newly minted video game nostalgia after the jump.
