Protector is made by the same people who made Datastorm for the Amiga, and Protector is more or less a port of that game, albeit updated to Jaguar standards.

Development history

The Protector project was canned by Atari and Bethesda Softworks in the mid-nineties, and it wasn't until years later that the author dug the remaining sources out of the cupboard and let Songbird release it at long last.
