Horrible
26 October 2013 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Many regard this game as a classic. It ain't. Even by the standards of 1980 this is a cheap, infuriating game with terrible controls and ear-bleeding sound effects.

You control a space ship made of three blocky pixels flying over a mountainous landscape shooting at little blocky aliens. Sounds like an enjoyable, mindless "schmup" right? Nope. You ship attracts enemy fire like it was magnetized and whatever part of the screen you might want to occupy you are guaranteed to crash into an alien ship. You'll last all of 30 seconds playing this game.

I can't for the life of me guess why so many people claim Defender to be a classic. It's not worth your time or interest at all.
