Category: Missile Command Arcade

This arcade cabinet model (below) was also a favorite of mine. I chose to buy this cabinet,  and made something similar to what I did with Space Invaders This was a Missile Command Arcade, the Atari arcade game that was released in 1980. There are 2 models of Missile Command and mine is somewhere in between xD

Missile Command was also licensed to Sega for European release. It is considered one of the most notable games from the Golden Age of Video Arcade Games.

The work on this one was exactly the same as in Space Invaders, cleaning, painting, decal, buttons, etc. .. Again I had to get down and adapt the artwork of Missile Command to this different cabinet.The hardest part was to adapt the control panel which in this new cabinet needed to be for 2 players

The Arcade was left with the screen horizontally and I changed the control panel to accommodate 2 players with 3 buttons for each. The original Missile Command uses a trackball instead of a joystick.

I’ve applied a new chrome t-molding which gave an extra special touch to the final result. Enjoy!
