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?
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Aug, 1984)
It's the speed that foiled previous conversions and even this cartridge-based Defender would benefit from a little extra pace. Having said that, all the game's challenging features are faithfully reproduced. (...) If you're a Vic-owning Defender fanatic then this cartridge is compulsory silicon.
Micro 7 (Jun, 1984)
Ce superbe jeu de scrolling horizontal ou, dernier rempart de toute une civilisation, vous avez pour mission d'empêcher les envahisseurs de kidnapper vos contemporains, est bien rendu sur le petit Vic.
