Hidden Gem: Starfighter Defender

Most of us know about Starfighter Disputed Galaxy, the very popular multiplayer strategy/action/ a star treks fans dream game. And because SF: DG was/is so popular Ben Olding (DJStaika) decided to make a turret defense game to celebrate its one year anniversary. Starfighter: Defender puts you right back into the Starfigher universe and doesn’t disappoint. The game actually looks just like SF: DG except this time you’re playing from the space stations prospective. The game is really solid, and should not be a hidden gem at all; the ratings should be .50 higher in my opinion.

The game has no weak points except that the game can get a little repetitive, other than that I dare you to find a flaw in it. I mean the graphics are great, the gameplay is smooth, and the sound is awesome. And if you’re a fan of the game there’s replay value in playing as both aliens and humans, and trying to improve your score. The game also has API scoring for all the high-scores.

I think if there’s another underdog week Starfighter: Defender stands a great chance of getting a badge or two.
