This version of the classic Defender arcade game gives you up to 84 moving characters on screen at one time. The display is remarkably fast and surprisingly smooth.

The game progresses at a hectic pace, with aliens, missiles, mutants and the rest streaming towards you and slowing down, only to be followed by another wave of nasties.

A novel 32 x 31 character display is used, and some readjustment of your set may be necesasry. The insert and accompanying card list addresses which can be poked to alter the vertical and horizontal hold, and even the character height.
