Special Sub-Topic: How Well Do You Know "Defender"?
|What is the name of the alien race you fight?|
Manti. Everybody knows where Klingons are from, right? They're from "Star Trek". As for Xenomorphs, they come from the "Alien" series starring Sigourney Weaver. Of course you don't fight humans you protect them. The manti are very weird aliens. Some fly and some walk. Manti Landers are green things that abduct humans and use them to mutate into faster flying creatures.
|What is the name of the huge ship that controls the human communications, transport, etc.?|
Battleship Memory. Battleship Memory is the biggest man-made thing in the entire game; at least that's what everyone says on the game. The "Battlestar Galactica" was a ship from the T.V series of the same name. As for the Arizona, it was sunk in one shot by the Japanese in Pearl Harbor.
|I have four legs, I move very slowly and I take many many shots to destroy. I look like the spider from centipede. What Manti am I?|
Widows (Ogres). Manti landers are flying Manti that abduct the humans and use them to mutate. The mutant is a Manti that fires orange energy bolts that can do heavy damage to a weaker ship. Tank Manti are made up. The widow does heavy damage to any ship, and can use its legs as shields, which can pose a problem because it can then take twice the damage. Do not confront this beast with weak weapons, especially if there is more than one.
|How do you save the humans that are on the ground?|
Slam into them with your ship. Yeah, as surprising as it sounds, you actually do slam into them to pick up, but, in the original you had to catch the humans with your ship when they fell. The only time the rope is seen is when you pick up a battery or you have three humans on your ship. It is impossible to destroy all the Manti because they keep coming.
|What is the max limit of humans can you carry on you ship at once?|
Three. Two hang on to the wings and one holds on to the rope on the bottom of the ship. You can take them to safe areas and drop them off, and they will make health items and ammo for you.
|How many humans does it take to make a tank?|
Three. Tanks can be carried by your ships rope to give you more firepower. It also gives you the ability to shoot behind you because the tank turret can turn. Be careful though, the tanks can be blown while you are carrying them.
|How many humans does it take to make a missile crawler?|
Two. After you take the two humans to the missile crawler factory the produce a missile crawler for you. These vehicles are extremely good for ground to air combat. You can pick them up and take them to other places, but they don't give you extra firepower because the missile launcher part closes up in to the body of the vehicle.
|There are vehicles that you can carry on your rope that regenerate your ship hull while you fly.|
True. These are the perfect asset for your ship during the last two locations, the moon and the Earth, because they are swarming with heavily armored Manti. You can set them on the ground and they will start to repair the tanks and missile crawlers on the ground. Now if they could only repair themselves.
|How do the repair bots in the game repair your ship and other structures?|
They shoot out a beam of electricity. As cool as it would have been to see the bots fix the ship with a metal rod or nanobots, we get this beam of electricity that gets the job done. It doesn't take too long for your ship to be fully repaired though. With that machine you are pretty much invincible.
|Where does the last mission take place?|
On the Moon. It takes place during the retaking of Earth where Memory will go suicidal to destroy the manti. Don't think about taking a weak ship into the level. Take your most upgraded, most powerful ship, or be prepared to die.
