Platform: Atari 800
Year: 1982
Developer: Unknown

The Atari 800 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. In the tunnels you'll come across energy pods which will make you invincible for a short period of time. During that time, the game's only music will play.

Music

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.
