Old games never die, they just get re-released! Missile Control was first released some years ago as a very clever (for the time) version of the Atari classic Missile Command. I'm sure all of you have played this one: you fire nuclear missiles to save your cities from descending clouds of nuclear rain.
For a long time, this game used to be a perennial favourite at discount prices at all the computer shows and I have to confess that I don't really understand why it has been re-released. Games have moved on considerably.
However, if you are one of the handful of Beeb games players who don't already own this then you might welcome this cheap reissue.
Perhaps it's the contemporary 'Star Wars' feel that suggested a re-release, perhaps they finally sold out of full-price copies? Who knows, but if you have never seen this game it might be worth your attention in a slow games month.
