One of Midway's greatest games ever!!!
1 May 2002 | by (Bellflower, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Defender is a great game made by Midway in 1980. I have this game on my PlayStation Game Console on Williams Arcade's Greatest Hits, made by Midway in 1995. I play it all the time. I was not born in 1980, but 1988. It is difficult, but great. You control a ship called the Defender, which moves up and down on the screen. You have to save the earth's human population from swarms of Landers, Mutants (formed when a Lander abducts a human), Bombers, Baiters, Pods, and Swarmers. To move your ship forwards, push the thrust button. To move in the other way, press the reverse button. Your weapons are: Laser cannon, and the Smart Bomb. This is one of the greatest games ever!!!
