Cool, I'd love to play Defender on the 7800! He'll probably change the name slightly to avoid the copyright. Yes it's still illegal, but there are lots of games on the AA store like this and nobody seems to complain.

This thread is about this game and no further discussion of copyright will be had in it.  There is a thread for that and the related posts have been moved there.

It certainly does!  He states on the details of the video that he's taking his time with this one.  I'm just glad he's back at developing games.  :)
