You are the commander at NORAD defending the United States against an enemy attack. You have only minutes to make life or death decisions as you defend against enemy bombers, subs and missiles. Every second counts. Race against the clock and the enemy to save the world from Doomsday.
Your orders: Defend prime targets (cities and military bases) in the United States with the help of the NORAD defence computer. If your defence is successful, you stop the NORAD computer from launching an IOBM counterstrike that will surely result in the destruction of all mankind.
WAR GAMES… is it a game, or is it real?
The principal designer of this game was Coleco staffer Joseph Angiolillo. The game was directly inspired by MGM's 1983 film WarGames, but instead of depicting the film's events, it adapts its iconic NORAD scene into playable form. It is one of a handful of games that feature waging nuclear war, and one of the few without an aim of winning it.
