Worried you're being ripped off? Closing prices on eBay can help you decide what a reasonable price is for a particular item.
As a full price game it is extremely poor value for money. It's very easy to play; one game can last for ages; so the addictivity is a tiny insignificant speck of nothingness. A definite no-no. Read Review
Graphics work very well and the sound put you right in the driving seat. Read Review
Not a bad attempt but a pity that such a promising format should turn into an unremarkable game. Read Review
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. There's no challenge, nothing to make you want to have just one more go. Nothing except a drab, utterly mundane game that wouldn't make a splash if you dropped it in a pond. Read Review
Vindicators is a one or two player tank game.
Players must pick up fuel to stay alive and stars to customize their tanks. With these stars an arsenal of weapons and super powers may be purchased. Players can also select their starting points and are rewarded with a cache of stars for accepting a greater challenge.
Vindicators takes place in the year 2525 outside Galaxy TR 15. The mission is to intercept and destroy the invading forces from the evil Tangent Empire. The goal is to proceed through multi-level stations, securing each by demolishing its control centre. The weapon used is the SR-88 Strategic Battle Tank.
As team commanders of these SR-88 Strategic Battle Tanks, the players must face the invading forces from the Tangent Empire. The invaders have 14 space stations equipped with turrets and highly mobile armoured tanks that constantly patrol the Tangent's fortifications.
The SR-88 Battle Tanks are powerful but their fuel supply is very volatile. The players must constantly replenish their fuel supply by picking up fuel cannisters at the many levels of the stations. Battle stars are also found along the way which provide enhancements such as:
The High Score table lists the overall top fifteen scores with the player initials. If a player completes all 14 stations then he/she is rewarded with a FUEL BONUS, STAR BONUS and also a 100,000 POINT BONUS
If a player achieves one of the top 15 scores he/she has a time limit to enter his her using the joystick keyboard. Use Left/Right to select a letter and Fire to enter the letter. When all initials have been entered, the player will be shown the amended High Score table with his/her score and initials highlighted.
Z - Left, X - Right, Q - Up, A - Down, SHIFT - Fire
C - Fire Special Weapon, B - Swap Special Weapon
The tanks are controlled using joystick and keyboard. Normal joystick controls apply.
If player one is on keys and player two is on joystick, player two also requires the following keyboard controls:
Enter - Fire Special Weapon, P - Swap Special Weapon
To pick up fuel and stars just drive your tank over them.
The following utilities are also available to allow you to edit the supplied screens of this game:
