AndroidAppADay: Missile Shield

Mon, May 10, 2010

Android, Mobile

Atari gamers of old will remember many great games of past such as Space Invaders, Pong, Breakout and many others that could be played endlessly for hours on end. One such game was Missile Command which stole the hearts of many gamers with its fast paced, missile bombing gameplay that still holds up today in many ways.

Missile Shield for Android does nothing more than attempt to replicate that feeling and rush that Missile Command provided nearly 30 years ago. The objective is simple: Bomb missiles that stream down from the sky and threaten the city below.

To stop the impending missiles, you just tap in the area they are heading toward and a bomb will explode, eliminating the missile and stopping it from hitting the area below. A certain amount of missiles will deploy each round and after eliminating them all, you will move on to the next round. If all fo the buildings in the city are destroyed or you run out of bombs, the game is over.

Quick arcade action is what Missile Shield provides, and for free, does a well enough job at providing that quick burst you may need.

Missile Shield is currently available on the Android Market.
