Planet Defence

Planet Defence

 

Description

Based on Defender, one of the best retro arcade games of all time, Planet Defence is now available for the iPhone and Touch.

Planet Defence is a fast-paced horizontal shoot'em-up featuring Tilt or Touch control to maneuver your space ship.

Defend the planet by protecting the humans that roam on the planet surface.

Green aliens skim the planet surface and pick up humans, when they reach the top of the screen they mutate and the human they carry is lost.

When there are no more humans left the planet explodes. New humans are dropped off every fifth level and the planet is restored.

How many levels can you survive?

brings me back

:
Loved this game back in the 80s. Was hoping it would come to iphone. Thanks to developers for bringing it back. Snatched it up as soon as I saw it. Like the original game. Just as fun and addicting. But I would make three suggestions for updates and then it would be a five star.
1. Fire button definitely too close to bomb button. I cant tell you how many bombs I have accidently wasted when trying to hit fire button. Maybe move bomb button, leave fire button where it is since it is well located but perhaps enlarge the fire button.
2. Difficulty levels would be nice.
3. ****** MOST IMPORTANT ship needs to be more responsive (quicker response) to the tilt control. Perhaps build that into game or better yet put a variable sensitivity control in the options menu.Fix this and game would be five stars. I played many, many hours of Defender in the 80's and I was very good and I know how the game should feel and the tilt response is WAY TOO SLOW and severely hampers the game play. If you change nothing else, at least fix this. *****

I just increased my rating to 5 stars due to update. The ship is much more responsive now, just the way it should be. Kudos to the games developer.

4/5 stars

Happy find... But frustrated.

:
I'd searched for this 'defender' arcade classic a few times, before I found it.
I used to play this game in the 'chippy' after boy scouts. 10p a go.
Love it.
It's just as mad fast and exciting as I remember it.

And that's the frustrating bit.
Tilting and tapping an iPhone and frantically slamming an arcade machine joystick and big red buttons are totally different input experiences.
This game should have some newbie levels...
I'm lasting only a minute of intense sweat if I'm lucky.
And also... displaying my score at 'game over' would be nice...so I can see my improvement.
Ace find. Great fun. But frustrating....
