The Guard is an enemy in the classic shooter game maker. Instead of running away like the Cruiser does from time to time, the Guard stays to fight. The Guard's health is about two times stronger than the Cruiser and two times weaker than the Heavy Cruiser. It's a great enemy to place if you want to make sure the player feels like they are being surounded by emeny ships even though Speeders are the best for that job since they actually follow the player if he/she tries to run away. The Guard's coloring is grey, orange-yellow, green-blue, and red just like the Heavy Cruiser.
