Classic Game Room HD reviews DEFENDER for Atari 2600 VCS video computer system. This 1980 arcade smash hit came with some surprising changes to the Atari 2600 including a row of buildings instead of mountains and only one button, but it still has a unique charm and remains highly enjoyable to play today. Defender, which is one of the best arcade video games ever created, is similar in style to a horizontally scrolling space ship shoot-em'-up, or SHMUP. It does not have power ups or mega super hyper weapons or insane bullet hell madness or end bosses, but it does have fun and addictive gameplay. Even on the Atari 2600, which butchered some arcade ports, Defender holds up to hours of gameplay with exciting action and explosions, smart bombs, landers, swarmers and mutants. It is still one of the best titles on the Atari 2600 and this review shows Defender gameplay in all its glory. Classic Game Room reviews the best new and classic video games and hardware from all video games consoles. Old school fans of retro video games will find many CGRHD reviews to enjoy.
Star Castle review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts, hats, mugs & gear! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews STAR CASTLE for the Vectrex from 1983 based on Cinematronics' 1983 arcade game! There's a mysterious fortress in a far-off galaxy filled with riches and beautiful women who look like the babes in Flash Gordon (I made that part up, but it does enhance the story). You want in but the fortress is surrounded by golden-future-space walls and a Zorlon cannon! Destroy the walls, steal the riches, save the girls and rack up high scores in the awesome STAR CASTLE!! If it's on the Vectrex you must own it.
