Vanguard is an early scrolling shooter. You pilot the Vanguard ship through several underground tunnels clogged with enemy ships. Each zone features different enemies and different natural hazards in the walls. Your goal is to reach the City of Mystery and destroy the final boss, Gond.

The Atari 8-bit port appears to be a hack of the Atari 5200 release of the same 1983 year, but only exists as a prototype. Fortunately, years later, someone was able to convert in into the ROM image, thus we are able to have a look on this port.
