Defenders of the Earth was a kids cartoon from the
late eighties. I remember watching it as a kid and
thought it was okay. I remember the various characters
which included Flash Gordon and his nemesis Ming the
game itself is okay too. It's a horizontally scrolling
action game where you have to navigate your way through
various corridors, blasting bad guys and leaping chasms

young defender friends. The graphics are pretty good and
the game plays quite well.
manages to find the exit.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using infinite energy and lives cheats.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you find the final screen, you get to fight Ming -
who appears as a large floating head. After a lot of
blasting, he explodes leaving you free to exit through
the teleporter. Some kind of weird teleport effect
happens, which transports our hero to the throne room
where Flash's young friends are being held captive. A
final end screen of congratulations appears confirming
that Ming has been defeated and the captives are now
free. The game is completed.
