*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!

Great Game.

This is one of the best games I have played. I love the realism because in war, there are no upgrades. By the 50th hour I held off I had grown attached to the German Gunner. I felt like I was the German Gunner, and I was fighting for my life and my country. This game is a literal piece of history. This is the greatest war game i have played on Newgrounds.

The concept is like no other . something no one would ever of thought of and the music is amazing. I can say much more than a tower defense game

Why do we kill the allied troops?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I cried

You begin to build a connection with the gunner after the first fifty hours... Then after that... I... I just lost it... I couldn't help but cry when we both died at 462 hours..
