Summary

A great game from the Atari era.

The Good

I like that its graphics were so much better than other games at the time. The gameplay and sound is phenomenal.

The Bad

I didn't like that the explosions weren't better and that you couldn't upgrade your weapon.

The Bottom Line

An amazing game from the Atari era with wonderful sound and amazing graphics for its time. If you like space shooters, then you'll love Defender.
