Little Protectors is a smaller and more light hearted take on the whole Protector series, gameplay has been streamlined to remove a lot of the annoyances some players experienced with Protector's advanced systems. More of a classic pick up and play Tower Defense game. Also includes several new ideas and strategies that expand on the gameplay in a streamlined way. Resource Gathering - The player must gather resources during gameplay, creating a choice between attacking incoming enemies or harvesting needed materials to grow stronger. No leveling/Upgrade system - Units don't level up, instead the player can improve units by equipping various pieces of equipment. Equipment - Items are crafted by the player during gameplay to improve the unit and also looted from slain monsters. Content - The game contains a total of 14 levels but also includes 4 different types of special gameplay mode for each. Earning the player new goodies each time one is completed. Magic - The player has magic spells at their disposal which can be triggered at any point provided they have gained the needed mana. Targetting options - Long missing from the Protector series, every unit now has an array of targetting options, attacking the first, strongest or fastest enemies and much more.
