Defender!

This is the old William's Defender arcade game on which I spent a lot of money down the pub thirty years ago.

Just got its first update: dpad added. Of course compared to the real thing it is tiny and struggling without a proper joystick and buttons, but still pretty good.

I wish they'd make it for the ipad. I'd buy it instantly. I just have a thing for the arcade classics on my ipad. lol

I really wish someone would port Joust to the ipad.

I've actually got the cocktail machine of Stargate (Defender 2) at my home. Absolutely LOVE the game. I might have to pick this up.

Glad to see the update, bought this a while ago. Love it that its so close to the arcade original

Wish someone would do the same with Scramble, some decent clones around but nothing which is practically similar.

But can recommend for old skool arcade fans

Very jealous! I used to play Defender! during lunchtimes on the sit-down, glass-topped version with a mate from work. My friend was observed and met a partner.

You're seriously trying to derail another game's thread for your own business?

How pathetic.
