Destroy the invading aliens and save your people from being abducted. And if you don’t save them… watch out! The aliens will mutate them into super-aliens who are really good at killing you! If you were a child of the ’80s, you might remember this classic. It was one of the most challenging of the early arcade games. Note: See below game for instructions and tips. After game loads, click START on the left-hand side of the screen.
Instructions: Defender is controlled with the arrow keys (up, down, left, right). Weapons include laser (A), smart bomb (S) and hyperspace mode (D) Extra smart bomb every 5,000 points; extra life every 7,500 points.Also, if you shoot an abducting alien from too high, your fellow citizen will plummet to his death. You must catch him in your ship and drop him safely to the ground. Oh, and your guns can kill your fellow citizens, so watch where you’re shooting. Be sure to use your radar (at the top of the screen) so you’ll be prepared for the aliens you might encounter. Oh, and a word of warning: The hyperspace drive on your ship is acting up; if you use it, it’ll take you to a random part of the map (maybe smack into the middle of an alien ship!) — so use it only as a last resort.
