App description: Barrel Defender is an old school retro Arcade Shooter. Protect your Energy Barrels, collect extra weapons and blast away waves of aliens!

Barrel Defender is easy to control. Your spacecraft follows the slide of your finger and is in 'auto shoot' mode. It is the ideal game for the casual player. Enjoy blasting aliens for a couple of minutes...

Features:
* 2 game modes ( wave game and quick game )
* a bunch of different aliens and movement pattern
* a bunch of extra weapons
* 2 GFX Sets ( Solid and Vector )
* different background gfx
* easy to control
* quite easy play
* BarrelDefender is OpenFeint enabled


Quick Game:
In this mode the game play difficulty increases rapidly so pickup your extra weapons on time...

Wave Game:
You play 5 stages with 5 waves each. Each wave uses predefined enemy patterns. After a specific amount of kills, you enter the next wave. This mode is quite easy in the beginning and no real challenge for the experienced gamer but still fun to blast everything away...

Note: if you tap once on 'Start Wave Game' or 'Start Quick Game' the high score display shows the high score for the chosen mode.

If you tap on the top of the screen while playing you get the in game option screen.

I can't find a video, don't think it has leaderboards. Here's a link to the author's site...

uhh.. it's free, and I'm telling you it's worth a try. It's a great retro game that I was really surprised to find. It's really fun, just give it a shot - or don't, whatever
