I'm just about old enough to remember "Defender" when it was considered to a be one of the hottest arcade games around - I have fond memories of playing it down the local chippy, so I thought I'd indulge my nostalgia and have a go at making my own version..... I reckon it ain't too shabby for a first attempt, but it really needs the "radar" from the original.... If I get a reasonably good response I'll put that into version2......

surprinsingly fun

nothing to keep me playing longtime, but pretty good to kill time

A fun game!

The graphics are great, the audio is pretty good, and it's a nice little timewaster. My only complaint is that there's a problem with flying diagonally and shooting at the same time - Flash seems to lock up when there's more than two buttons being pressed. Maybe do a little Actionscript research to see if there's a way around that. It's evident you've put a lot of effort in to this game though, so there's no faulting you there. Well done :)

Too difficult

On top of the bad controls the game overall was pointless and difficult. Could be improved upon. The mujsic was also kinda annoying.

Fucking awesome

so much nostalgia, too little time. I loved it
