Warheads is more or less a Missile Command clone. The screen is divided into four sectors, each of which has three rocket launchers and six buildings. You manage one sector at a time, switching between sectors for each wave. The enemy missiles (as well as occasional powerups) fall from the sky, and your job is to keep them from destroying all of the buildings in the sector. To do so, you simply tap anywhere on the screen, and the nearest rocket launcher will fire a rocket to that area. Watching your rockets blow up missiles and powerups is undoubtedly the best part: the resulting explosions have a distinct fireworks-like quality.
