This is a Defender sub-clone, and I reckon it's a pretty good one. You know the plot; you're patrolling the rocky terrain of a distant planet when who should appear but etc, etc...

Arcade games provide software writers with games to copy but also with impossibly high standards to reach. This time, the shortcomings of a little memory have to a great extent been overcome by adaption. The attackers come in waves, and the mobility of the defending space ship is limited.

However, this is a very well-thought-out game, and one that should provide a great deal of pleasure for many of its purchasers. It sounds like a whole arcade of space invader machines gone crazy, but let's not hold that against it.
