[edit] Background

This all-new 3D Defender, based on the arcade classic, offers players space-combat action as they fight to defend their solar system and save the human race from alien invasion. In addition, Defender will showcase elements of strategy, multiple types of humans to protect and use, ground units for players to defend and strategically position, and bases to build and expand. Players will also be able to take flight in new, upgradable Defender ships as they take on the invading aliens.

[edit] Gameplay

Defender drops players into the midst of an alien invasion where they must combine strategic elements with speed, control and firepower to outwit the enemy. Ship upgrades are also available with various power-ups including shields, advanced weapons and hyperspace technology. Aliens can be taken head-on in single-player campaign mode or defeated with a friend in the two-player, cooperative campaign mode as you deploy an arsenal of weapons such as a grenade launcher, fast-lock missile launcher, fireball launcher and gas launcher.
