Title Anarchy Publisher Psygnosis Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 Compatibility All HD Installable Available Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review A nice Amigatized attempt at a defender clone with some extra features. The basic idea is the same, kill all the enemies while flying over a horizontally scrolling landscape attempting to protect your pods. This very fast paced shooting game is a defender clone. You fly either left or right shooting all the enemies that try to take away your pods from the bottom of the screen. You can see where the enemies are going to attack from by looking at your radar. You collect little glowing balls that when touched to the pods will protect them from being taken away by the enemies. If all your pods are taken away then the screens turns red and you are attacked relentlessly by what seems like a thousand enemies at the same time. You do have a limited number of so called smartbombs that will kill most enemies when activated. Unlike defender however, there are various super enemies that have to be shot many times in order to be killed. This is a nice feature and adds some variety to the game. The graphics and sound are very nice, especially the backdrops. The game plays well and joystick movement is very responsive. The difficulty level is a little on the hard side but this makes the game that much more challenging. The enemies fly in various patterns and seem to home in on you, so you must have good reflexes and a quick trigger finger. There are weapon icons that when collected will give you better weapons and more smartbombs. In conclusion, this is a very good shoot'em up. Its very similiar to defender but has more variety. It's very fast paced and enemies are very numerous. The game plays differently everytime you play so you should never get bored of playing. If you like defender then you should like this game. It adds a little variety to defender but some people who are arcade purists might not like the added variety. I like the variety because if I want to play an exact version of defender there are PD versions available. Anyone who likes fast paced shoot'em ups will like this game. You won't regret buying this.
