A classic that has been lovingly re-created. Brilliant gameplay. Easy to pick up and play
The fact that one shot from an alien can blow your ship up can be a bit annoying

As the title suggests, play as a “Defender”(original I know), a small spaceship with the task of keeping the humans safe on the landscape they are living on from the evil Aliens. To do this your armed with a laser, which fires a long horizontal beam, and a few smart bombs which destory all Aliens on the screen. You also have a hyperspace button, which teleports you to anywhere on the map – The controls for this version are a lot less hand cramping than the original arcade layout and this time the hyperspace button is easier to reach! This is one belter of an arcade game and still is.
