What is it about?
Visually, Missile Cards features a retro 16-bit aesthetic that serves as a great homage to classic games, including Missile Command, which this is based on. The game makes use of a bright and vibrant color palette, and all of the icons on the cards makes it easy to tell what they do from a single glance. The text is also pixelated like back in the day, but still easy-to-read. Missile Cards also takes place on various planets, so you can expect to see some beautiful landscapes in the backdrop of the grid you’ll be playing on. The animations in Missile Cards are smooth and fluid, and I had no issues at all on my iPhone 7. There’s also a fantastic chiptune soundtrack to go along with it all, so it feels like the finishing touch on the vintage design. For the developer’s first release on the App Store, Missile Cards is an excellent title in terms of visual and audio design.
