Missile Command: Recharged gets a revamp and relaunch on Steam

By - | Views: 14,081

Atari and Adamvision Studios have taken down the original Missile Command: Recharged, and replaced it with another Missile Command: Recharged of the same name but it has been upgraded. It's seen a bump in the price too.

Answering the question of why they decided to re-do it, they said: "To address the elephant in the room: there was indeed an original release of Missile Command: Recharged. Being the first title in the Recharged series' lineup, Atari decided to go back and upgrade the title with all they've learned after releasing six additional Recharged games. Atari's revamped Missile Command: Recharged equips the game with fresh content and a whole new gaming experience, drawing inspiration from later releases such as Gravitar: Recharged, Yars: Recharged, Black Widow: Recharged, Asteroids: Recharged, Centipede: Recharged, and Breakout: Recharged."

No free upgrade for the people who already own the game? I am disappointed :(

On the other hand, I very much like the version from 2020 and I still have access to it, so I guess it is alright.

So let's just forget the people who bought the original game? No replacement or discount? This just seems like a money grab. Unhappy with the game? Don't update it. Delist it and create a new one. That makes perfect sense and doesn't reek of the stench of greed at all.
