Based on a home computer game from the early 1980s.
Defend against the marauding discrete components within your computer (resistors, capacitors, diodes and transistors) which are launching a revenge attack on the CPU! Fire pulses down the motherboard tracks to destroy them before they reach the CPU.
Tap on the screen to move and fire on the nearest track (you can fire up to 3 pulses simultaneously).
Avoid the evil red pulses which are launched towards the CPU at random intervals!
Use the right up button for a “zap” (smart) bomb which will destroy all components on the grid and the right down button to pause the game (any key/screen tap will resume).
Bonus zap bombs are awarded every 10000 points (up to a maximum of 5) and a bonus CPU life every 20000 points (up to a maximum of 4).
The game gets progressively harder with each level as the number of components, their speed and the CPU pin/motherboard track number increases (8, 10, 12, 14 to a maximum of 16).
Daily and all-time high scores are recorded and can be viewed from the main menu.
CPU Defender has a free 30 minute trial period after which a one-time payment of $1.49 is required via KiezelPay.
