Customer Reviews


I have to admit, I’m playing this on a first gen Mac Pro, running Lion: it’s not showing the crash problems other reviewers are having. on OS X

What’s more?

While the power ups aren’t as frequent as they are in the earlier version, there’s an improvement in the amount of special weapons one gets.

On the whole?

This is an improvement on Star Defender 3.

When’s Star Defender 5 due out?

I’d like to see more of this sort of thing … 

star defender 4 premium

well what can i say played this on windows computer and all fine. playing now on mac and the aliens all break up and disappear so really not worth playing please get this fixed as dont like paying for games that dont work properly

Almost Perfect.

I first downloaded this game on a Windows 7 laptop, it was great, no problem's, don't get me wrong, it's an amazing game, best there is, but when I exit it , now on my MacBook Pro, it blow's the screen magnification, so much that, it lock's the laptop, I have to click on Restart, which almost fill's the screen, then drag the centre window to click on the button to restart.
Also now the large mouse clicker on the main menu stay's on the main game screen, which can be annoying, apart from that it's absolutely BRILLIANT.
Cant wait for the next update.

Since I wrote the Original Review in 2011, slight improvements have been done, alas, Have been in touch with the Third Party Supplier several times about the Promised update to fix the above issues, the update has not arrived, even though they have a Fully Working Version for the iPad, things have got worse in respect that I now have no sound at all, it appears sound does not work on some apple products!!!!, have again been in touch with Awem, only to be told they do not have enough apple qualified staff to do the update, the only way I found to get any sound at all, which i found by chance was to use Mirroring the game to my HD TV, strange.

The long Awaited update finally arrives, alas, after what must have been all of 15 seconds of playing it I realise its not better but much worse.

Yes the sound not works, wonderful, that was about all that does.

The Aliens are now flashing on and off as they zoom around the screen, the award bubbles that also float down the screen are transparent, also the game still affects the resolution of the game, so all in all, after what must be 2 years of waiting, I’m not very impressed at all, come on Awem surely after producing such a good game you should be able to fix this, Star Defender 3, has an update too, after playing the update for a similar amount of time no visible or audible problems seemed apparent, but theres still time, I expect.
