Game Description

Star Defender is a simple, but very fun shooter game. The idea is somewhat like the classic Space Invaders with waves of attacking ships. Fight through these hoardes with 5 different gun powerups and very powerful rockets. Get through a set of attack waves and you will duke it out with a tough end boss.

A few tips to help you on your way:


  1. Control and fire of the ship is with your mouse.
  2. Be sure to use your rockets (right mouse button) often as you have a lot of them and they can clear out enemies fast.
  3. Grab as many powerup icons as possible.
  4. When you reach the first end boss, pound him with rockets and you will destroy him in no time.
  5. Have a blast!
