TrackPoint Defender: In-house Mini-game

We’ve got some exciting news – we’ve built our very own mini game!

Introducing TrackPoint Defender, a shoot ‘em up made by employees from the Yamato Research Institute, developers of the ThinkPad. TrackPoint Defender is on a mission to showcase the versatility of the ThinkPad TrackPoint to as many people as possible. Here’s a couple of tips to get you started:

① When you press the "START" button to open the game, the menu screen will be displayed. Please refer to "How to Play" for instructions

② TrackPoint Defender is best played with a keyboard that has a TrackPoint. Not available on mobile or tablet.

③ Press the "START" button below to get going.

Enjoy the game, Defenders!

NOTE: Music continuing to play after you’ve closed the game? Closing the browser tab should fix this.

Let us know what you think of the game (and if you’ve managed to beat it!) in this forum or in the comments below! .

  • Cool graphics and fun game. Sadly i didn't have a TrackPoint on this PC, will have to play on my L14 later ;)
