MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction

Watch out for that Missile!

MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction

I am not usually a fan of playing ‘remixes’ of old classics. MAD is an exception. In short, you’re about to experience a slick ‘Missile Command’ upgrade with awesome graphics, music and a new upgrade system.

Gameplay

This is Missile Command. I am not going to tell you how to play it. In fact, there is a comprehensive tutorial that lasts all of two steps. That’s the mark of a great game. It is simple to explain.

As you blow up missiles, you get resources. These, naturally, can be spent on upgrades. What sort of upgrades? You ask. Well, see those buildings that surround you? They each have a special talent. Some provide extra firepower. Others provide time slowing capabilities.

On top of that, you can spend resources to upgrade your missile refresh rate or increase your shields. Spend your resources wisely. Things get hairy fast. Like your Mom.

Technical

HUD!

The aesthetics have been drastically improved. First, I left the music on. It is awesome and really adds to the dystopian feel. It is orchestral with weird choral stuff over top of it. Yeah, it gets repeditive, but that is the whole point of this game. You have to get really good at doing the same thing over and over.

The graphics are swell too. The missiles are well rendered, and your buldings are really cool looking. Your HUD is very grungy but clean at the same time. That’s basically what the future is going to be like, basically.

Very clean, very pleasing to the eye. There’s no background in the sky, so all you have to worry about is blasting missiles out of the sky.

Final Verdict

There’s something about Missile Command. Old school games truly tested your skill. How? You got one simple task, and your job was to perform it perfectly. Many have called Missile Command ‘the perfect game’ because you must plan ahead by conserving ammo, but it also relies on your dexterity.
