Killer Satellites

Not as good as Defender, but not as hard!

Okay, Starpath, you gave it a shot, but you all definitely did not capture the magic of defender. This game is slower by a long shot, less graphically impressive, and actually a little less fun because of it. There are times in the early levels where you're just waiting for ships to appear and it gets a little boring, actually. The best graphic effect is when you get killed and the whole screen flashes. The addition of overheating weapons is a cool feature, but comes at the sacrifice of saving people and saving people is more exciting than limiting your shooting, for sure. This was probably one of the least played Starpath games we had, I'm afraid. It's not completely terrible, though!

... More like "Mildly Dangerous and Sort of Boring Satellites", am I right?
