Guardian is the first title in our Epic Arcade series of games and blends non-stop, furious action with specific mission objectives. Evoking memories of Williams' 1980 arcade classic Defender and Broderbund's 1982 Apple II title Choplifter, Guardian takes the concept to the next level.

Guardian features 30 adrenaline-filled missions that will push you to your limit...and beyond. Beautiful 2D, 3D, and parallax graphics will place you in three totally different worlds, and at times you'll be facing well over a hundred simultaneous enemies.

If mankind is to survive, you'll need fast reflexes and nerves of steel. You'll need to defend fleeing civilians, protect allied installations, wreak havok on the enemy's infrastructure, provide allied marines with close air support, and more.

Jump into the cockpit of the 23rd century's most advanced starfighter and see if you've got what it takes to save the world. Download it now...if you've got the stomach for it.
