Game description: Defender undergoes a 3D makeover, featuring fast-paced action, strategy, and an army of aliens. A remake of an arcade classic, Defender sends you on a mission to defend your solar system and save the human race from alien invasion. In addition to space combat action, the game showcases elements of strategy, multiple types of humans to protect and use, ground units for players to defend and position, and bases to build and expand. And now, you can upgrade your Defender ships with special weapons, shields, and other technologies.
Defender is a two-dimensional side-scrolling shooting game set on the surface of an unnamed planet. The object is to destroy alien invaders, while protecting astronauts on the landscape from abduction. Humans that are successfully abducted return as mutants that attack the ship. Defeating the aliens allows the player to progress to the next level. Failing to protect the astronauts, however, causes the planet to explode and the level to become populated with mutants.
