Gut, weder die gerenderten Mini-Feinde noch die Pixel-Explosionen, die blutleeren Hintergründe noch das Drei-Ebenen-Parallax-Scrolling reißen heutzutage noch vom Hocker, doch das Kult-Gameplay mit seinen konstant hohen 60 fps hat sich seinen Charme bewahrt. Über 40 Level lang ändert sich daran zwar fast nix (O.K., hin und wieder kommt ein Boss oder ein Meteoriten-Hagel), für eine schnelle Ballerei legt man Protecror jedoch immer wieder gerne ein. Das erhebt das Spiel in den gleichen Kult-Status wie Tempest 2000 - dafür gibt‘s von uns trotz Ideen-Klau die Höchstwertung.

Overall Protector is a great new addition to the slowly growing library of Jaguar games, and anyone who likes shooters and wants to try a defender style game that focuses more on game play and action rather than flashy graphics then this is your choice. Some people may like it more than other, it's an pretty good title in my book, but you know what they say, "Different strokes for different folks"
