Defense Command is a 1 or 2-player a space-themed arcade game for the TRS-80.

The player controls a small space fighter on the bottom of the screen, which can scroll horizontally. The ship is armed with a small laser which can fire vertically upwards. At the beginning of each game, a large spider-like creature distributes a number of fuel cells on the level, and the player's goal is to protect these from incoming aliens. The player must shoot aliens, while avoiding running into them. If an alien grasps a fuel cell, they will attempt to fly off with it to the top of the screen. If an alien carrying a fuel cell is shot, the cell falls to the ground. It will be destroyed, unless the player stays beneath it to catch it. The player starts with 3 lives, and loses a life when they are hit. The game is over when all fuel cells are lost, or the player loses all lives. A new life is awarded every 10,000 points.
