*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?



- 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.


- 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!

What a game. There really isn't much here in terms of gameplay compared to other base defense games due to the lack of upgrades. But that's okay because this game isn't about winning. It's about the perils of war. Which is so beautifully described in the cutscenes. Also, the Art style with everything as a silhouette is nice.

One of my fav games on this site
