"The macho game: Defender. Defender is a game of superlatives. It requires the best hand-eye coordination of all the games (with the possible exception of its sequel, Stargate), and it is the most difficult to teach. Many think it is by far the best, most exciting, and most challenging game there is. Others believe it to be undeniably the worst, the most difficult to understand, the most frustrating, and the most pointless game of all. Defender is the ultimate macho game -- women rarely play it -- because it requires loud, frequent blasting of the enemy." (Seen on page 54 of "Score! Beating the top 16 video games" by Ken Uston, 1982.)

"Defender has very complicated controls, and you will never be more than a novice without mastering them, learning to use them as automatically as you breathe... Mastering Defender requires some perseverance, but most players find the effort worthwhile." (From pages 76-78 of "How to master the video games", 1981, by Tom Hirschfeld. Bantom Books, ISBN 0-553-20164-6.)
