About this product
- Product InformationThe year is 2049 and the planet is in total disarray. Earth's human inhabitants have temporarily headed for the stars and left mechanical robots called "orbots" to clean up their mess. Under the guidance of Raster, the orbot leader, everything was running smoothly until an attendant accidentally replaced his head with an atomic bomb.
The newly transformed Raster became the evil WarHead and immediately ordered the orbots to stop cleaning up the planet and begin manufacturing weapons for use in ambushing the returning humans. Only one orbot, a sludge barge pilot by the name of VectorMan, was unaffected by WarHead's mind-controlling scheme. He was out of communications range at the time of the takeover.
This is where you come in, fearless gamer, as it is your duty to save the human race by guiding VectorMan through 16 levels of danger-filled action. You must seek out WarHead by following a trail of television receivers around the planet. Once you catch up to old bomb head, you must confront him in an Earth-shattering battle to end all battles.
Each time you destroy a television receiver, you will earn a weapon, a morph icon or a power-up. Power-ups include 1-Ups, extra time, multipliers, health points, save points and photons.
VectorMan begins the game equipped with a ball gun and can trade it in for a rapid fire gun, a wave gun, a bolo gun, an orb or a nucleus shield. When the ammunition for a particular weapon runs out, VectorMan will get his standard ball gun back. With his weapons he must ward of a host of orbots, including grenade-launching Howitzers and ground-shaking Sludge Pilots.
When VectorMan picks up a morph icon, he will be transformed into one of seven different shapes: a drill, a bomb, a jet, a fish, a missile, a parachute or a buggy. Depending on the shape, these transformations allow him to perform useful tasks, such as drill through floors, fly to higher areas and swim faster.
VectorMan will also be transformed during three Boss Rounds in which our hero must take on WarHead. He'll turn into a dancin' fool at the Disco, a train on the Levitating Tracks, and a cricket on the Rolling Mat. VectorMan offers three levels of difficulty: Lame, Wicked and Insane.

great classic game
In 2049, the human population of Earth embarks on a migratory voyage to try to colonize other planets. They leave mechanical "orbots" to clean up the mess they made on Earth through littering and pollution. Raster, a high-level orbot who watches Earth through a planetwide computer network, is accidentally attached to a working nuclear missile by a lesser orbot and goes insane, becoming an evil dictator named Warhead. He declares himself ruler of Earth, and begins preparing to execute any humans who dare return to their planet.

O jogo é sensacional. Dispensa comentários.
Gráficos acima da média e jogabilidade e dificuldade intensas, o áudio é um show a parte.
Um jogo que não pode faltar na coleção de um verdadeiro colecionador. .

This game is pretty good. The graphics were kind of like Sega's response to Donkey Kong Country, 3D with smooth animation. The visuals are amazing, but saying that isn't enough, I recommend watching a game play video to see how great they are. The soundtrack is also pretty good, just some nice techno beats that fit well with the mood of the game. This game is a very fun shoot-now-ask-questions-later kind of game. It's simple, smooth, and addictive. You can get upgrades very similar to Contra and cause even more destruction and explosions. The only downside is that it may seem a tad repetitive after awhile. This is definitely a game worth checking out.
Game play: 9/10

Vectorman-Popular for a Reason
Vectorman is an example of a system being pushed to the max. Great lighting, immersive graphics, and strong funky music compliment this platformer with a dash of run'n'gun.
If you can buy it on an original cart, do so. It's worth it.
