"Back to the arcades"

Reviewed by / Jun 26, 2013

A version of Space Invaders

The old arcades bequeathed a fertile ground for any kind of imaginable video game, but from time to time someone believes it's the precise moment to dig off some of the old relics and wash their face. This is one of those cases. Star Defender 4 is the new Space Invaders in town. Mind you, there are different kinds of enemies and power-ups and even boss battles, but in the end is all about moving left and rightwards and throw a bomb when things get real.

Unfortunately, what it should be a yet another casual game turns a little bit annoying because of user interface issues that make difficult to read texts and some occasional force closing for no apparent reason. On the other hand, this paid version gets you rid of ads.

At the end of the day, it's a game enjoyable for old school gamers who want to see how an old classic can be revamped, as long as we omit the aforementioned flaws.

Comments:
I played a lot of alien shooting games in the 80's this ranges right up there with the best. I love it. This game keeps you on your toes, definitely one of the best I've ever played. @ Unbelievable

Never thought I could be addicted to any game.... but nah this game got me hooked @ Walfat

Addictive! Awesome graphics! Amazing combination of centipede, space invaders, and asteroids.@ Vinny
I think this is a fresh overhaul of the game called Space Invader. I like the speed & smoothness of it. The movement controls would be better in the middle of the screen, but other than that it's really cool! @ Koen Jochems

Key words: space shooter, space battle, arcade games, star wars games, alien shooting games, space invaders, starship, shoot em up

    I enjoyed every second of Star Defender on PC. And I'm happy to see a port to Android-- for better or worse. The graphics, music, level designs are all the same. Its great, since the difficulty and appearance has not been degraded. Unfortunately this brin

    I have a Motorola RAZR. Every time at level 3 the ship stops moving, shooting or both for long periods of time. Usually long enough to lose 2 or 3 lives!! Fix this major bug and get a 5 star rating.
