  1. Boyfriends, played this Game ..
    Very Difficult and they were so cool, as we Draped Ourselves in Silent Anticipated Awe, all over and around them ..
    As Not to Disturb !!
    1982-84.
    New Zealand 🇳🇿

  2. I didn't play this much back in the day — it was far too difficult and I never felt as though I was getting my "10p's worth" compared with other games like Phoenix or Moon Cresta that I could play for longer. But those sound effects! The bass thump as the Landers explode, and the drawn-out fade of the player ship's demise still sound amazing.

  3. I love how the meta in this game is to destroy humanity yourself except for one dude you carry around.

  4. I held the high score in the local arcade back in the day. 2.2 million

  5. 2:10 gotta be nerve racking for the poor guy who got rescued! “WILL YOU PUT ME DOWN?!” 💀

  6. Was there a glitch at 990 00 points till 1 million points where you got extra lives ? I have a memory of that happening

  7. ALL THESE 50-60 YEAR OLDS WERE HAVING THE TIME OF THERE LIVE AND IM HERE CRYING IN MY BEDROOM ITS NOT FAIR 😭

  8. not bad but i had to laugh at your ending..the game is to get points, point means more smart bombs and combatants which is necessary to progress through levels, you clearly ran out of both. I use to clock this game 999 999 is the highest..Still the best game ever. the sound effects is what you hear in most sci fi movies now. Thanks for the great memories from New Zealand.

  9. Cool.. I would like to see a challemge of an 80s teen now in there 50s verse a teen today in this.. lol..

  10. I didn‘t like this strategy, I kept accidentally dropping the last human down to earth again and being mobbed by nasties while he got caught again

  11. I spent so much money on this game as a kid….LOL

  12. I remember being a kid at the arcade and being amazed while watching people play this. This game seemed so much more epic, fast and intimidating than the other games.

  13. Wow awesome game, loved it…. video reminds me of how damn frustrating it can be though

  14. The sounds in this game still scares the Be-Jayzuz out of me.

    Edit : I got the Home Edition of Defender with my Atari back in 1981. I still feel they done the dirty on me.

  15. Man, I love the 80's Williams Electronics arcade games. This and Robotron:2084 were always kicking the crap out of me as a kid, but I loved them anyway.

  16. Just about everything about the game was brilliant. The sound effects, the game play, the behaviour of the characters, the design of the characters.

    The only criticism might be that the hyperspace button was just a little to far away to press in a hurry…

  17. I watched a guy called Kevin once roll over the score – was it a million? – and back to zero. He could survive attack waves in space full of mutants.

  18. I think they really should bring back the amusement arcade games and in the amusement arcade.

    You go into any amusement arcade these days and the games are very few in number and mostly rubbish.

  19. The other great Williams game was Robotron, but I think I only ever came across one cabinet in 6 years, Defender was much more common.

  20. Easily one of the top 5 games ever.

  21. Anybody here cuz a 90s news radio episode?

  22. I’m 54 from uk. Always struggled to get through wave 3 but watched a master at work one day in arcade on Bournemouth pier who seemed invincible! People crowded round machine in awe. Days of my youth 😌

  23. I never could play Defender….but I enjoyed watching others play it and the classic sound effects. Only three years later, Williams released Joust with many of the same Defender sounds. Ironically though, I was very good at playing Joust. LOL

  24. Perhaps the most exciting space shooter of the era.

  25. If you liked this game, then you will like Resogun. It's the modern interpretation of this game.

  26. Omar, PA-C:Urban Health Education Workshops says:

    A FORTUNE in quarters…gone forever! 😅 I could have bought a house for cash ( in quarters) for what I spent on these games. I think PAC-MAN and comics got most of my money, TBH.

  27. Defender never did well money wise in hood stores. There were too many buttons for them and too much brain power needed to successfully advance in the game. The machines in those places were replaced with simple joystick-only type games, such as Pacman or Lady Bug.

  28. I would love to see Data from Star Trek Next Generation play.

  29. Nostalgic noises and gaming i was 11 when i started playing this

  30. I turned Defender over when I was 12 years old at Chuck E Cheese arcade, it only took me 2.5 hours 😂

  31. Best of the first gen Arcade games – by far – and the most challenging

  32. CHRISTOPHER WILLIAM HARRISON AKA EPLURIBUS YOU TALK OF AQUA LUNG AND SO DO I SOMETIMES THINK SEAL SEA LION LUNG TRANSPLANT FROM ANIMAL TO HUMAN BECAUSE YOU NEVER FOR SOME GODDAMN REASON WON'T TO HOLD THE ONES ACCOUNTABLE FOR CIGARETTE SALES THE BLACKS BILL WINSTON
    DRIVING MISS DAISY BENSON AND HEDGES AND SO ON THE SOLICITOR'S SO WHY SHOULDN'T I LOOK THERE ?

  33. I'm 60 and I remember the times my friends and I competed on this machine, many of those friends are now dead but it was sure a great memory maker seeing this.

  34. Used to be my favorite game next to Pheonix. Didn't give much graphically but it had this for that time insane sound design one just couldn't resist.
    And because it had such a damned fast gameplay to offer. LOVED LOVED LOVED IT !!!

  35. 이 오락은 왠지 70년대 후반 미국산 SF 애니메이션을 생각나게 하는데요 ㅎㅋㅎㅋㅎㅋ

  36. University of Cincinnati, 1980-81, Calhoun Hall. Then University of Akron 1981-85. I was "DIM". It took a lot of quarters to learn to play all day on one quarter. This guy plays exactly the way I did.

  37. It was fun to collect all ten astronauts on the first level. Game would slow down due to VRAM limitation and you could then take out Baiter after Baiter.

  38. I'm 51 years old and I still been playing a game when I was a teenager I still want the greatest game players of the 1980s I played every video game from Pac-Man to double dragon bad news Kung Fu Master here I come who Contra one and two Ninja gaiden one two and three I paid all those great games back in the day I should be in the video game Hall of Fame

  39. Level 4, first thing the dude does is shoot all his astronauts.

  40. Cant tell you how much money I spent on this game as a kid…….
