Description: Alpha Command is a throwback to the Cold War bunkers and nuclear scares. Inspired from cheeky 90’s movies and classic arcade titles, Alpha Command puts you in the commander’s seat as all-out nuclear war finally occurs — on your watch. Defend your cities from the incoming missiles and protect as best you can against the onslaught, as you fully embrace the role of Alpha Commander. Compete against your friends for high scores, and immerse yourself in a full 3D virtual reality experience, with cutting edge graphics and classic, reimagined gameplay for a new era. The world is under attack — and it is up to you to defend your cities against the onslaught. Are you able to become the Alpha Commander?

Review: I’m sure that on paper ‘Alpha Command’ might have sounded like a great idea for a game. After all, it is the Atari classic Missile Command, only played in VR with some updated effects. Sadly what you end up getting is a small amount of nostalgia wrapped around a terrible game with worse graphics than its 8-bit counterpart. OK, so that is being a little harsh, the graphics are indeed low-poly, but when it comes to gameplay it is just the same 2D game, only played in a 3D environments! It’s almost to the point that it was pointless updated it as the “3D” environment you play the game in isn’t worth writing home about. I won’t be recommending this game, especially for the current £7.19 price tag, but if you REALLY love your retro gaming and see this in a bundle with other cheap games, maybe give this a look.
