    VB: Defender [Source]

    I know there are some bugs there. I know the sound don't overlap and stuff like that, but just want to here some opinions about the game before I finish it off...

    For those who remember this old win game you probably know what to do, but for the rest of you...push enter to start and click left/right mouse button to shot. Try to hit the end of the lasers coming down from the sky....press Esc to stop playing...

    Sorry for not writing in English in the game, but you probably understand when to push the enter key...

    I had to skip a couple of the big bitmaps like the menu and a couple of the sound effects to get under 100Kb...so keep that in mind when playing...

    that's the most beautifully programmed arcade game i've ever seen

    ...but the diffuculty level is much too high =] I recall the original game having the missiles go much slower

    And a lot fewer of them until much later. That's something that's easily correctable though.

    Thats true. I can change the difficulty level pretty easy. But I actually thought about doing it more difficult, because my girlfriend visited me one week. And when I went to school one day, she finished all 10 levels.... But I will listen to you guys...
    But thanks for all your opinions. Now I wane make more arcade games...I'm in the sky now...

    You are not supposed to click on the lines. The explosion has to occur on the end of the line. So you have to click where you think the line is, when the explosion occurs....Do you get it. You have to click below the line coming down....

    VB: Defender [Source] So where is the Source?
    Keith

    I've been programming with VB for 20 years. Started with VB4 16bit Pro, VB5 Pro, VB6 Pro/Enterprise and now VB3 Pro. But I'm no expert, I'm still learning.

    it's true, there is no code files in the atachment, just the *.exe, sound and some images...
    here is a question you can never get right:
    "is the answer to this qestion no?"

    "no, i am not crazy... a grown man on his front lawn in a tutu screeming "i'm a cantalope" now that is crazy" - me

    Remind me that I am never get a job as a server adm. I am really not good at this. So I ended up just changing the zip file in the first post. So hope everything is there now. I didn't check ...but it is at least bigger..

    Re: VB: Defender [Source]

    It isn't too hard to change the speed nor the amount of lasers. But SInce this is a VERY old game of mine, there is no way I am going to change things now....

    Thanks for the comment though..

    the title is confusing. Missile command and defender were two completely different games. Defender is a side-scroll flying game where you are protecting citizens from aliens by shooting them before they abduct them.
