*Now with medals!*
*Thanks a million for the frontpage! This has been a dream of mine since I joined NG 4 years ago*
*Also, at this rate I can't comment on every review, I do read all of them though and every bit of feedback is appreciated!*

D-Day: June 6, 1944, 6:30 am. 160,000 allied infantry troops are approaching the coasts of Normandy to conduct the largest amphibious landing in history. There you are, a lone soldier in a turret. How long can you hold them off?

Note: D-Day Defender is not beatable. History will have its course, and the Allied Invasion will succeed. But how long will you endure?

INSTRUCTIONS
Controls:
- Mouse to aim and shoot by clicking.
- "A" to reload
- "S" to use 'engineer powerups', and;
- "D" to launch a mortar strike (when it's ready).
- "P" to pause the game
- "M" to mute.

Pro-Tips:
- Fire at groups of enemies for better efficiency.
- Vehicles explode, time those well so you take out a couple of soldiers as well.
- Gun overheated? Reload while you wait!

Major thanks to the following guys for beta-testing this game: Deadclever23, liaaaam, Saza, and other people I've forgotten (sorry). Even bigger thanks to Zuggz for decompiling my swf after I lost al my files in a crash. Decompilers are quite useful after all, so are back-ups.
Also props to FatKidWitAJetPak for writing the cutscenes!

Reviews


The game doesn't start for me. I read in the comments that you had to right click it, but I'm on a mousepad.



Too luck reliant. Engineer bonuses should be less random and mortar should instantly kill tanks, too.



This is an absolutely great game. I love the story of the Lone German Gunner holding his ground against an endless (literally!) wave of enemies. Not too difficult either, just the right amount of challenge.

it is really great but you have to press right click to start the game, fix that

A tragic (albeit fun) game of defending a beach for your army. Although you'll never quite win, you'll be remembered.
The tone of this game is actually fitting, and so is the narration. Ideas where you're a German soldier instead of a US/British/Canadian soldier running into the beach with several bullets flying at them, you're the enemy they say you are.

This is why I give the game a 5/5.
