Defender, the first of these games to be released (in internal link1980), puts you in control of a small, one-person spaceship, cruising above the earth's surface. Here you engage a variety of internal linkalien ships in combat, while trying to prevent them from picking up the humans roaming the surface and converting them into "mutants" (evil, flying hybrid alien/human ships), all the while avoiding weapons fire from enemy craft. As it happens, this is quite difficult to do, particularly as the game progresses to the higher "internal linkwaves". The aliens get quicker and more aggressive (particularly the Baiter, a superfast rectangular internal linkgreen enemy ship which is usually nearly impossible to out do), and appearing in relentless numbers. Allow all humans to be snatched by aliens, and the planet below explodes, thrusting you into space with a suddenly multiplied bevy of aliens awaiting you. Game play quickly reaches an internal linkintensely manic pace where all but the most hardboiled "Defender-heads" are doomed to a quick death at the hands of ruthless aliens.

Defender is classic Williams; exciting and extremely addictive. Its sounds are very good and contribute immensely to the overall quality of the gameplay. One of the all-time greats.
