Veigues - Tactical Gladiator © 1990 Victor.
Veigues is a side scrolling action game developed by Game Arts and published by Victor Musical Industries. In the year 2321 our beloved planet is under attack and the federal army decides to send its best weapon, the Veigues, to counter the invasion. The player takes control of a large humanoid robot and fights his was through ten intense stages. The Veigues comes equipped with multiple types of weapons. The weakest of all is most certainly the short range field-punch mounted on its left arm. Thankfully, its right arm is fitted with a laser-gun that can take down enemies at a long range and a machine-gun located on its chest can hit ground and aerial targets. The Veigues can also hover in the air for a short amount of time and the Vernier bar at the bottom of the screen indicates how long the mech can fly above the ground. In addition, the mech has the incredibly ability to recharge its protective shield. A boss awaits at the end of each action stage and awards the Veigues with experience points when defeated. These points can be used to upgrade any part of the mech or improve its Shield or Vernier ability.
