Defender of the Crown – iOS Universal – $2.99
If you don’t remember Defender of the Crown then you don’t know gaming. Not only is this an Amiga classic, but a gaming classic overall. The graphics and gameplay were ahead of their time and gave the game a look you didn’t see anywhere else. Sadly, the Amiga didn’t last, not in the States anyway, but the game does live on and you grab it for the extremely low price of $2.99.
I think this is going to be one hell of a game! And considering this is running in an emulator, I can’t wait to see where this takes us!
