Perfectly designed game play by Eugene Jarvis. First game with smart bomb, first game with a scanner.
Everything you shoot from 990,000 'till it clocks at 1 million earns an extra life and smart bomb - then nothing more until 1,300,000. Scary!
Sequel is Stargate/Defender II; had two spin-offs- Revenge of Defender (for home computers) and Defender 2000 (for Atari Jaguar).
