        When it came up I couldn't believe it, as I had said in the Juno first thread like a vertical Defender. Thought about selecting another game but that would sort of ruin the randomness.

          This is a completely different game to Juno first , have loved this game for eons, and how cool is it to watch someone who can play it well
          Surprisingly the first time it has come up in the MGL, so scores will be interesting.
          Really want to spend some time on it this week.
          Anyone have a preference for button setup on there mame cabs when playing this game
          I am using left/right for thrust and buttons for the rest
          Well here is my first pissed effort

          Think my top is around 32,000 , time to get some game on guys

              Amen to that, Defender is wayyyyyy harder than Juno First

              Hopefully get some practice this evening. My best times for these league games are whenever 'So you think you can dance' or 'Australian Idol' comes on the telly. Then it's "I'm off to the Garage!"

                  LOL.

                  Defender and Pacman are the number 1 grossing video games of all time with estimated earnings of over $1 Billion usd. (that would have been declared earnings too!)
                  Its also voted one of the hardest video games ever!

                    #1 grossing that's kinda weird, seeing as it is so hard. Guess people just kept feeding coins cause you could be game over so quick ? I stayed away from it in it's arcade days, had better, more fun things to spend 2 bob on.. joker poker and 6 million dollar man pins, to name a couple... not forgetting space wars, oh my, space wars.

                    Williams had great sound effects in their games for the time. I'm playing a fair bit of Tutankham at the moment, same hardware, smart bomb, it's also DAMN hard. You gotta be Stern to play these games

                      I can see why it was so popular, I mean 5 buttons and a joystick in 1980, that would have seemed cool back then I bet.

                          Defender rocks! Like galaxians one of my favourite games to put on for the young ones who claim (Awwww those 80's game so easy, so boring!) $5 none of you get to the second screen. That same $5 note awaits on top of my cabinet unclaimed A great game and a top looking cabinet!
