YMMV: Defender
  • Awesome Music: C'mon, who didn't feel Badass when the game opened with those synth guitar riffs?
  • Goddamned Bats: Baiters and Swarmers.
  • It's Hard, so It Sucks: When Defender as first released, it was panned for having a complex control scheme with too many buttons.
  • Porting Disaster: The Atari2600 cartridge attempted to port a console game with five buttons and an up-down stick to a system with a joystick and one button... poorly.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: All of the particle and explosion effects in Defender II—especially when the Earth is blown up by every human dying.
