Stargate: The challenge that goes beyond Defender

The thrill of the arcade game

The entire universe is your enemy as you struggle to rescue humanoids stranded on the planet surface. To take them to a Warp you must reach the Stargate. But getting there isn't easy. Yllabian space guppies, Dynamos, Space hums, Phreds, Big reds, Munchies, Landers, Baiters, Pods and Swarmers block the way spewing death and destruction. Will your cloaking Device work? And can it protect you from the threat within... Mutant humanoids... ?
