SEGA Days Nostalgia!!!
VectorMan was so ahead of its game back in the day and I loved every second I played it as a kid. Flashback and Nostalgia in its purest form! I don’t know who decided to make this available for iOS but whoever you are, may you be blessed for all you have done for mankind. The only reason I don’t give this game a 5 star review is because I absolutely hate the controls. Nothing personal against the game. The game is amazing! The music is awesome! Even the capability and movement was ahead of its game! But you can’t take advantage of it because it’s so difficult to do the basic things like shoot diagonally and jump and shoot down. (If you don’t know about these you are a noob) More of a complaint against iOS, I guess. Why can’t I just use my Switch Pro Controller for this? There has to be a way! Please add NFC capability! I don’t want to cough up another $50 just for a control specifically for iOS games. Otherwise awesome game!
Talk about a pure nostalgia trip
I remember watching my dad play this when I was growing up and trying my hand at it also. But when you're 3 trying to play a game that is quite tough like this you probably won't make it too far. I love this game on the phone my only complaint if I can even call it that is that the control pad for movement is a bit too finicky. I try to look up and there I go. Hauling booty across the screen instead of shooting the tv I was looking at. That is the only downside I have and it isn't even a big one. Thank you for releasing such a fantastic game and letting me live my childhood yet again with these classic titles!
Great game but game descriptionis incorrect.
Humans depart from earth and leave robots to clean up the environment. Warhead was normal robot whose head was replaced by a nuclear warhead and made it corrupt. Vectorman is fighting to save humaninty from returning to an Earth turned into death trap. This is explained in the game’s intro. This “last of humanity” thing is incorrect, and Warhead is not dictator just a head clean-up robot gone bad like Sigma from Megaman X.
