The Games Machine (UK)
Not the most aspiring of coin-ops, Vindicators has nevertheless come over incredibly well as a computer game. Smooth scrolling in a large playing area, digitised explosions and some ace sound effects make Vindicators not just a superb conversion but a real fun game to play. Tanks a lot Tengen!
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The ST version of Vindicators is a stunning copy of the original machine, which looks identical and plays brilliantly. The graphics are first class, and I especially like the massive explosions, which give you a real feeling of destruction. All the sprites are smoothly animated and finely detailed, and the backdrops are of similar quality. The gameplay is excellent; it's challenging, tough and very addictive, and the two-player mode adds that competitive edge to increase its lasting appeal.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Good gameplay, good graphics (sound effects aren't so hot) and a spot of thinking required (but not too much), what more do you need from a coin-op shoot-em-up?
Excitement is heightened when a second player is involved, with a sense of competition when it comes to collecting the much-needed fuel cannisters and weapon tokens, you can forget about shooting each other though, as this transfers your fuel to your partner - a neat touch, especially when one of you is about to meet his maker. Vindicators strength is that if its simplicity appeals, there's plenty to keep you going.
There are plenty of levels to go through and the gradual increase in difficulty will keep you busy with Vindicators for many hours.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Die Grafiken sind insgesamt nicht sehr gut, beim ST hat man sogar vergessen, die Panzerketten zu animieren, was der CPC aber tut. Naturgemäß ist der Sound beim ST etwas besser. Alles in allem sind beide Versionen, gemessen an den Möglichkeiten des jeweiligen Rechners, gleich gut.
VINDICATORS ist mit Sicherheit kein Hit, schlecht ist es aber auch nicht, eben Mittelmaß.
Vindicators ist die leidlich gute
Umsetzung eines leidlich guten
Spielautomaten. Bei soviel Mittelmaß sollte man sein Geld nur ausgeben, wenn man das Spielhallen-Original heiß und innig mag.
