Defender - Arcade

Probably one of the hardest games I ever played; Defender(arcade) managed to swallow vast sums of my hard-given pocket money back in the day.

Defender is a game of a clutter of cats versus a lonely mouse protecting the planet's population from alien abductions. Addictive and truly groundbreaking when it was released in 1980, Defender is one of the best all-time retro experiences, and shows just how difficult games used to be before the age of the tutorial or the modern hint.
