Missile Command for Amiga?

Hi:
I was searching for a game that appeared in Terminator 2 movie, Missile Command.
Well, first I have to say I found this great info ("The Almost Complete Guide to Video Arcade Games in Movies") here:
http://users.rcn.com/jenison/mars/vidmovies.html

Later I found a thread in A-org (http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=43819):

Compared with the original version (made by Michael Rosskopf) Blackbird has added three different levels of difficulty, a title screen, a screenmode requester and many minor improvements. For instance it is now always possible to quit the game by pushing the ESC-key.

The game runs starting from a 30er processor with 2-4 MB FastRAM and graphic card. Besides this it is UAE-compatible. Under UAE you simply have to choose UAEGFX 640x480x8bit.

But it seems it's made to work with a graphic card.

A fast question: Is there any version I can play in my Amiga?
Thanks.

Wow... fantastic links. I'm saving them. The Missile Command of yours, Boo Boo is the same I downloaded from the link of zipper, and it's fantastic, great music and fast. Asteroids in that link is great too.

The only problem I find is that I get the screen splitted in two... how do I solve it?
Can it be caused for my CyberbugFix patch?

EDIT: Ok, I've been trying changing the overscan and in my new Tv too, and now I can play both games and the one of my first post too: it doesn't need graphic card.

Thanks to all!

It's possible to play Missile Command on youtube. Open any movie, click on empty space and type 1980.
