Missile Command Turns 30, Gets Remixed For Multiplayer

Atari is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Missile Command this year, offering up one more playable version of the venerable city defense twitch game, this time online and totally free.

Missile Command fans and the reader looking to lose a few hours to a quality Flash game should try out OMGPOP's take on the tried and true gameplay, which adds online cooperative multiplayer and tower defense-like unit upgrades. Bosses, new graphics, a touch of curiously addictive something have all been added to the web version, a game that consumed the Kotaku staff for too long this afternoon.

Maybe playing some free Missile Command will get you hyped up for Atari's plans for a big screen adaptation. Maybe you'll just save a planet. Your call.
