Commodore User (Jun, 1984)
Defender is a fast-moving and enjoyable one or two-player game. Well-defined graphics and good-quality sound make full use of the Vic's limited memory, and it is on cartridge too. The main hitch with Defender is that it sometimes puts you on to the next screen arbitrarily, but who really minds extra points and more lives?

Ce superbe jeu de scrolling horizontal ou, dernier rempart de toute une civilisation, vous avez pour mission d'empĂȘcher les envahisseurs de kidnapper vos contemporains, est bien rendu sur le petit Vic.
