Missile Command

Untested, likely not working

Original Atari Missile Command arcade game circuit boardset that we are assuming does not work (it looks to be missing a couple of roms). We found this one in a warehouse cleanout and just don't have the time and motivation to go through it to get it running right now.  Consider it needing repair work as it has been sitting.

Board is sold untested and as-is, see photos for more details on its condition.

Quick Game Facts
Missile Command

On of the best games ever made, Missile Command was very appropriate for its time. In the early 80s, America was still worrying about the Cold War, and Missile Command was a very thinly veiled simulation of nuclear war.

You control a track ball that targets your defensive missles. You can shoot from three different bases, but be careful: if your base is hit, you loose all of your missiles in that base. Your goal is to defend all of your cities from the never-ending attack.

Coin-Op Overview

Missile Command has two boards: the main PCB board, and the typical Atari Audio Regulator II board. See KB article for proper upgrade to Audio Regulator II board.
