Protector (Mastertronic) Review | Computer & Video Games - Everygamegoing

Put two choppers together, and what do you get? No, not a biological throwback, but a battle of speed, power and shooting skill way out in the desert. Two helicopters are attempting to blow each others' bases to smithereens, by picking up the parts to make an atom bomb then dropping the completed explosive device on the opponent's volcano heli-pad.

The first to complete the mission wins - that's all there is to it. Unfortunately, what's there isn't worth splitting on, never mind forking out nearly a fiver! Protector is an atrocious Choplifter derivative, comprising of titchy graphics, sub-standard sound and gameplay so shallow you couldn't fill an egg-cup with it.

If you're looking for a decent budget buy this month, look to Spidertronic.


A terrible game in all respects. Only buy it if you fancy being the laughing stock of a nation.

Atari ST

The same game, with less colour and even worse sound. Don't even ponder with the idea of purchasing Protector.
