A downloadable game

There are two dead safe methods to survive a nuclear attack with ICBMs.  Defence with anti missiles and "Duck and Cover" where a simple desk will defy a multi megaton nuke.  Your mission is to protect six major cities against a global nuclear attack, else perish with them.

You control three anti ICBM missile launch sites,  if you run out of missiles or all your launch sites are destroyed you are out of luck until the end of the stage.

Target and fire your missiles using the joystick in port 2 or the 1351 mouse in port 1.

Keyboard control:

- M : music on/off 

- D : toggle single or dual SID

- 1, 2, 3 : mouse speed

The game has two soundtracks, one for a single SID and one for dual SIDs.  The second SID must be located at $d420 for this to work.  The game will attempt to detect the second SID, but you can manually switch between the two by pressing the D key if it does not work.

Original Soundtrack by Crisps

What a game ... 


Any chance of having a High Score board added or to save the high score to disk so that you can try to beat your current score later on? Great game BTW, I loved it! :)


Very nice arcade conversion, even when using a mouse. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 00:05:18. Automatic subtitles should be available soon (switch on, if necessary). Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂


A nicely made and playable C64 version of Missile Command. Love the mouse control!! Well done!

did you name it "missile command" on csdb only, because of copyright lol?


(meaning, it's good. here, have one of my "covers" i make exclusively for myself. i was to share these on lemon, alas, they banned me for being a "troll". their loss, your gain. this stays up for 1 week before it gets auto-deleted so grab it now or never. more covers incoming...)

This is the best missile command game I have played on the c64. Close to being as good as the Atari version. The mouse support works so good in this game. Wish more c64 developers add support for mouse. The only thing missing is a high score table saved to disk. Good work! 

Very impressive, only thing I don't like is the lack of arcade-style colour changes.


Awesome version !


Dr Mortalwombat at it again...wonderful! I've had a 1351 sitting mostly idle for ages, now it's time for actiion :)


That's awesome!! Is this in Hi-res bitmap mode?


It is multicolor bitmap mode


Looks like standard multicolour to me.


Lovely release and had fun testing this in dev phase (1351 mouse and dual sid). 


very good


Cool Missle Command clone. ❤️
