General Information

Available on:Nintendo 3DSJul 28, 2016

Developer: Ancient corp.,

Genre: RPG

The bad guys are after Princess Lola. You gotta protect her! Choose from a diverse and memorable cast of six classes, each with unique weapons and customizable, upgradeable skills. Strategically place barricades and turrets, hire hirelings, move Lola (the source of your power) around the map, and get ready to hack, slash, and magically mash wave after wave of enemies. LEVEL UP and DESTROY THEM ALL! Fight through 100 story maps, or create your own using the Map Editor and share them with friends via QR Code patterns. Supports Local Play and Download Play with up to four players. With just one copy of the software, you can gotta-protect with up to three friends—as long as they all have their own Nintendo 3DS family system! Features a heart-pumping soundtrack by a cadre of legendary 80s game composers including Yuzo Koshiro (ActRaiser), Hiroshi Kawaguchi (Space Harrier), Shinji Hosoe (Dragon Spirit), Hisayoshi Ogura (Ninja Warriors), and Motoaki Furukawa (Vulcan Venture).

Gotta Protectors Critic Reviews

It's a shame I almost missed out on Gotta Protectors because I absolutely fell in love with it. I love its simplicity, I love its music, and I love how well it accomplishes what it set out to do. This feels like a long-lost early NES title, right down to having to blow into a cartridge to start it up. With the map editor, I hope this becomes the type of game fans continue to support for years to come.

All told, Gotta Protectors is a fantastic tower defense / action hybrid that you shouldn't miss out on. There are dozens of maps to conquer, a fully featured level editor, co-op play, stellar presentation and witty writing. If you're looking to get plenty of bang for your buck and want to play something a little different, give this a shot. We'd absolutely recommend you go and download this game, it's infuriatingly addictive and you're sure to have a good time.

Gotta Protectors is a frenetic and charming celebration of retro Japanese games that rises above its low-fidelity presentation to deliver one seriously addictive experience.
