Title Datastorm Game Type Shoot-em-up Publisher Visionary Design Technology (1989) Players ? Compatibility All (With WHDLoad Patch) HD Installable Yes (With Patch Submission Mike Landers Review For sheer all out mayhem on an Amiga screen, there is nothing to match DataStorm. Nor would there be, as it is a direct copy of the all out blastfest that was the arcade classic Defender, (a sideways scrolling blast-em-up where you flew over small figures, that walked about on a lunar landscape, protecting them from all manner of alien ships). Complete with radar screen at the bottom, your mission was to protect and rescue inhabitants of a moon and drop them to safety, while aliens attacked them from the top and tried to take them away. Once at the top of the screen, the aliens would mutate and come looking for you extremely quickly. Anyone who loved Defender (and especially lawyers with interest in copyright) will love DataStorm, a near perfect copy. It is amazingly smooth and fast, with enough weaponry to keep Schwarzenegger happy. The "protect and rescue" element added a strategic angle and the mutated aliens could induce panic attacks. And even on an A500, it loaded in about three seconds flat.
