HSC Season 2 Week 48: Defender

Recommended Posts

Defender

Defend the human population from swarms of attacking aliens. Extremely popular even though it was deemed a flop at a 1981 Chicago arcade machine trade show because of its difficulty. The attract mode for the game was programmed in just five hours.

Never mind using a keyboard, just the general control layout is a pain to get used to. I'm too spoiled by the home compilation versions which allow you to move left and right instead of having to thrust or reverse.

Once you download the rom, how do you open it and play it? Or just how do you get the game to appear? Any help would be appreciated.
