Kill the aliens; for bonus points save the humans from abduction and mutation.  You'll quickly figure out which button is your laser and which is the smart bomb.  Hyperspace is on the keypad.

Let me tell you the controls suck in this game.  Why would the put shoot for the bottom button and bomb for the top. 

Still haven’t reach my top score

This score won't last long.  Arcade Defender was one one of my favourites.  This one is too fast for me now.

Compared to what; 2600, colecovision versions?  Other than mixing up the action buttons, the intellivision version is quite good in comparison.

When changing directions your ship's momentum carries you backward like the arcade.  Intellivision defender is the only home conversion that does this and does make it more challenging. 

 

Rapid fire games are always tough with intellivision side buttons.  Persistent fire when holding down the button would have helped.
