Product Description
Missile Defender
Another night, another numbingly catastrophic aerial bombardment

Defend your city against an enemy bombardment in this touchscreen twist on the classic arcade game. Intercept missiles, upgrade your defenses, and play through limitless levels. See how long you're able to hold out before your physical and psychological defenses crumble.

Hit or Missile

Incoming missiles rain down at night--tap on the screen and use the multi-touch feature to launch interceptors. Repairs and upgrades are available during the day, as you steel yourself for yet another fear-stricken night.

Missile Defender
Upgrade your defenses in this Sisyphean struggle against the Fates

Anticipate the path of enemy missiles and pick your targets accurately. Keep an eye on your own missile count and use them strategically. Be constantly vigilant as difficulty increases each nightfall. And keep holding on to the idea that someday it will all end. Someday...

Retro 80s Zeitgeist

Missile Defender is in the style of a classic 80s arcade game. It features clean HD art work, multi-touch controls, upgradable missiles, and endless levels of gameplay--without the oppressive fear of a real-world nuclear brinkmanship. If you've enjoyed those old quarter-guzzlers, Missile Defender is sure to bring back great memories.

Prepare to get nostalgic as you defend civilization from anachronistic existential threats in Missile Defender!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun until the ad started showing up after 5 days January 21, 2012
By D M

I enjoyed this game and was frustrated by it. (Who likes to lose?)
But losing seems inevitable with more and more missiles going
faster and faster. Maybe I didn't play it enough to get better at
it. Getting to high 20's wasn't too hard but level 36 was a stress
inducing exercise in futility. :-)

But I uninstalled today when it started displaying an ad 5 days after
installation. Might consider reinstalling to see if ad goes away again
for 5 days if I get the urge.

I agree with another who said it would be nice if you didn't have to wait for
the score to be added up. Seems to take forever. And perhaps one begins
to remember where the upgrade levels are, but it would be useful if there
was a shorthand clue on the building repair page so a person can make
appropriate decisions about repairing buildings or upgrading costs before
advancing past the building repair screen and then finding they should/could
have done more (or less) repair when looking at the upgrade screen.

Anyway, would have given 4 or 5 stars until the ad started annoying me.

UPDATE: Reinstalled. Ad came back again after 5 days. Deinstalled. Was
going to recommend to two friends but not now.

1.0 out of 5 stars carreful! August 24, 2013

I installed this and my Kaspersky immediately told me it was not a virus but was malicious content that criminals could use against me. With many concerns of contaminated 3rd party apps I have read about on news sites, indecided not to keep this on my device.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning August 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
"Armor For Android" detected Malware, SMSreg.AO. Therefore, I did not install nor try this FAOTD. On searching Google I found this "Programs in this category have a number of functions (such as concealing files in the system, hiding windows running applications, terminating active processes, etc.) which can be used with malicious intent. They are, in themselves, not malicious." Another site had this "A potentially unwanted adware program designed to deliver various advertisements to the users' systems"
Bottom line, I am not taking the chance with my phone.

I have loved missile defender games in the past, but obviously without malware. Game contains dubious extras. Trustgo Security found a low risk threat, PUA!smspay.A@Android. I have a wifi only tablet but uninstalled anyway

Not sure if this is a false positive, but Avast reports that this app contains malware. This is as of 7/28/2013. I've removed it until I can find out for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can make purchases unknown to you!!!!!! August 24, 2013
By Mortus
Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to playing this game as it reminds me of old games like those on my father's Atari. However after downloading I find that it contains a virus which allows it to make purchases using sms messenger. In other words it gets a hold of your secure buying information and then makes purchases unknown to you. This is as if 8:30 on 8/24/13
