Earth Defender, an Helkegames production for Ludum Dare 26!
You play as the first space division commander, a hero who must save the world from an alien invasion. You are the only one who can defeat them and save the world.

"In the year 2592 aliens are going to invade the earth. Defeat them and save the world"

Choose between three different levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium and Hard (if you want a real challenge choose the Hard level). But be careful, don't waste shots, you have LIMITED AMMO proportional to the level of difficulty!
This game has it all! Minimalistic music, graphic and gameplay, a simple but exciting story, a retro pixel art and a bizarre EASTER EGG inspired by the POTATO!
So what are you still doing here? Play it now and save the world!!

P.S. Suggestions to display the Easter Egg: it will appear only in the Medium level and only if you win it!

Download the zip files, extract them, open the README file for the instructions and then you are ready to play, just click twice on Earth_Defender.jar!
