ARMAGEDDON is based on that well-known arcade game Missile Defence. It involves defending six cities from incoming waves of thermo-nuclear missiles and other airborne weapons. According to the instructions, you may have to sacrifice some civilian targets for ultimate success, although missile bases are said to be your enemy's main target.

As a game it is very fast and requires good reactions. The graphics are fairly simple but include effective mushroom clouds. There is only one level of skill and since the game is so fast-moving it would benefit from several levels.

Problems were experienced loading the game but all Silversoft games are guaranteed and can be exchanged. Overall more attention should be paid to providing a better game than having a good title page.

Armageddon can be obtained from Silversoft.
