Hot damn, I remember playing the original Carrier Command
on the Atari ST back in the day. I loved that game, especially once I figured out that the best strategy was to hunt down the enemy carrier at the start of the game and send it to the bottom of the sea.

This is an example on an original screen
Huh, I have to agree. Those "original" screens do look more impressive. And the actor models remind me of something I would see in a start-of-the-art game... back in the 90's. But one of the original's charms was that there WERE no other people... it was you, your robotic carrier, and the opposing AI-controlled robotic carrier.
Just as a side-note, I got a giggle how they have the title ("Gaea Mission") with a big mushroom cloud underneath it. "Screw you, Mother Earth!"
Don't start anything you can't finish. Preferably to component atoms.
