BoxMissing.png
Platform: Atari XL
Year: 1983
Developer: Unknown

The Atari XL port of Vanguard doesn't have good graphics as the original arcade version, but still captures a spirit of 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 melodic synthesizer tune of Vanguard's energy theme was taken from the soundtrack of Flash Gordon without the permission. In particular, it comes from the song "Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawk Men)", composed by Queen. There are two versions of this file - short and long.

There are also 3 fanfares. It's unkwnown who composed it and where it's played in game.
