Atari 8-bit

Release Date: 1/1/1982
Manufacturer: Atari
Defender, after Space Invaders and Pac-Man, was one of the most important games to hit the Arcades in the 1980s. The action was frantic and the controls took more than a few quarters to become comfortable with. The Atari 8-bit port is an excellent port of the arcade game. Your job - as the title leads one to expect - is to save (or more precisely "defend") the world from aliens. Defender spawned numerous copy-cat games across a variety of platforms. The museum has several examples of these.
