Missile Command:Recharged


Recommended Posts

Works really well on android, only needed a couple of games to convince me that £2.69 was great value for the paid version. Thanks for the heads up too! 

 

Only minor niggle is that scoreboards update every 24hrs but there you go.

The 2020 version of Missile Command Recharged has been delisted from Steam and replaced with a new version of the same name. 

 

It's very much an expanded edition featuring the sorts of bells and whistles that the newer recharged games have.

 

Existing owners can still play the old version but will need to stump up if they want the new one. (It's on discount on Steam right now.)

A bit cheeky. 

 

Yep, the developer said this in response to queries about it.

We understand the confusion, heh.

To put it simply: the Missile Command: Recharged that was released in 2020 worked as sort of a pilot for the Recharged games - to see if there was a market for it. Looking back at it, we were not really satisfied with the game in the eyes of it being a faithful modern remake, and so we decided to return to it and do it better. The new game comes with all the improvements to the original gameplay which we have brought to earlier Recharged titles, including vastly improved visuals and gameplay, a new soundtrack, different gamemodes, and better performance.

This is a new game, not an update to the current one.
When Missile Command: Recharged is re-released on November 1st, the old game (MC:R V1 if you will) will be taken off stores and will not be sold anymore. Those already owning MC:R V1 at the point of V2's release will get the first game's price off the price of V2, which brings the price from roughly $10 to roughly $7.
If you own V1 you will not lose this game come November 1st, so if you wanna go back and play this version of the game after release you can absolutely do that.

I hope this explanation makes sense. For more info, feel free to visit the official website: https://recharged.atari.com/

Oh it makes sense, it's still a crap move that's only going to generate resentment. You could say hey it's only a couple of quid (I'm not near Steam so can't see the discounted price; guessing it's about a fiver), but that's not the point. It is an update, just a back-to-the-drawing-board kind of update. Hell, if Bethesda can give existing Quake owners the new port for free this lot certainly can.

Yeah, the discussion thread is a bit of a mess. There was supposed to be a 30% discount for existing owners on launch but that got delayed for a couple of weeks due to miscommunications. It's a bit of an issue given that their biggest supporters have been day one buyers.
