Stellar Defenseby Mike Colvin
You have to be quick to shoot these invaders as they zig and zag down from the top of the screen. You can move your gun laterally with the joystick and fire with the button from your supply of 75 rounds. You score points for each attacker you hit, and lose a player if the attacker hits you. At the end of each wave your score is enhanced by the number of players you have left. Each game supplies four players, and an additional player is awarded after each wave is completed.
This game was written by Mike Colvin, a high school student in Sacramento, CA, who polished up fiis early version with the helpful suggestions of Jerry White, our Technical Consultant. It is gratifying to see the development of the several new programmers who have submitted games for this department, even when those programs have not been quite ready for publication. Keep hacking, gang.
