The Last Defender (C64)
A downloadable game
This game works perfectly on both PAL and NTSC models. However, the game was developed and tested on an NTSC model, so it is suggested using the latter.
The year is 2073. A hostile alien race has arrived on earth, after crossing countless star systems, with the aim of taking over the planet. Initially taken by surprise, humanity managed to react and organize a resistance that made it possible to fend off various enemy attacks. However, this was not enough to repel the alien invader who is now about to carry out his plans for conquest. Only one last brave hero is left to fight. The entire human species is now counting on him to defeat the enemy and regain their freedom.
Use the laser gun at your disposal to hit the enemy. However, keep in mind that with each shot, the gun temporarily loses energy. So use it in moderation if you don't want to risk being defenseless in the most critical moments. For their part, the aliens will certainly not stand idly by. They will try to attack you by dashing towards the ground, resisting the shots of your gun at that moment. They will make use of a floating mine as a deterrent to prevent you from freely shooting at them. So avoid hitting the mine, otherwise you will be killed along with all the aliens on the screen. The enemies will throw missiles at you that you have to destroy and steel balls that you have to avoid. Occasionally, another hopping alien with an energy shield will spawn from the sides of the screen.
At 10000 points and then every 20000 points you earn an extra life, for a maximum of 6 lives.
There are 3 difficulty levels to choose from: Recruit, Veteran, Champion.
The "21 stages" option will allow you to play 21 stages after which the game will end, considering the mission completed. With the "Endless game" option, on the other hand, the game will proceed indefinitely beyond the 21st stage, on maximum difficulty.
There are 3 fire modes:
"A" Press fire to shoot sideways. Move the joystick up to shoot upwards.
"B" Press fire to shoot sideways. Hold the joystick up and press fire to shoot upwards.
"C" Move the joystick down to shoot sideways. Press fire to shoot upwards.
Joystick in port 2.
While playing, press F7 to pause or F1 to stop the game and go back to the title.
While the best scores are showing, press F1 to reset the ranking.

Cool game, addicted 😄
Thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it
Ti ringrazio tantissimo, ci guardo subito, e complimenti ancora per il tempo che dedichi per noi e per la nostra più grande passione
Complimenti Luca per il lavoro e la passione che trasmetti, Per caso hai un canale o un blog in cui spieghi la tecnica per la composizione dei giochi? A me piacerebbe tantissimo imparare, Ma trovo assolutamente complicato documentarsi
Grazie per i complimenti.
Mi spiace ma non ho un canale/blog del genere. Potresti provare a seguire questi video:
Sono in italiano
An easy and simple idea... a lot of fun.
Is it programmed in asm?
Thanks for the congratulations.
Yes, the game is programmed in assembly
I would like to create (in the future) a non-commercial version for Spectrum...
I ask for your permission
All right, you have my permission
I'd like to play in the browser first
Seems to be a nice game
You can download the game and drag and drop it here https://virtualconsoles.com/online-emulators/c64/
Obviously with VICE or similar it is much better
Grazie ancora per questi splendidi giochi, ecco il video della serata di ieri:
Grazie Alex per la serata !!!
prego Luca, mi spiace vedere che anche qui ci sono bot o simili estranei al gioco.... cancellali (anche questo poi)
like it 7/10 - horrible cover is here for 7 days https://ibb.co/g6pMhJ3
It's not that bad 😉
i was looking for some artwork that fit better but was lazy :/ and could not find any in time, oh well next time
This looks great, will play this a bit further Luca! If you plan a version with more levels or the like, please drop me a mail. :)
I'm glad you like it. However, for me this is the final version
Very cool game. May there be more such :)
Retro Chłop. K&A PLUS

Great game. Love the Space Marine sprite!
Happy to hear that
Thank you so much!
Just downloaded and made donation for your great work, soon i will do an evening on Twitch/Youtube dedicated only for your games. Thanks for all.
Cool game! Will you add music to the game?
I'm glad you like the game but I think not to add music. I prefer to dedicate myself to something else
Fair play regarding this. Not all C64 games need music :)
Glad you like it, thanks!
