Defender II was originally released as Stargate. The reason for this is because the original release came in 1985, before the game was renamed as Defender II. When the game was re-released in 1988 as Atari Corp. attempted to revive the Atari 2600, the game was released under the new name of Defender II. Because of this, the programmers at Atari had to design a completely new title screen for the game. Aside from having a different title screen, both Stargate and Defender are the same games.
