Vulgus (set 1)

Arcade 1984 Capcom Shooter Flying Vertical
Vulgus is pretty simple. You just pilot a spaceship and blast countless enemies. That is what is fun about this game. There is nothing complicated, just pure blasting. You only have two weapons, your blaster, and a limited supply of bombs. This title uses the time honored top-down vertically scrolling format. The background moves eternally forward, but you can move all around the screen, and can make the screen scroll both left and right. Your enemies consist of an assortment of fairly realistic looking spacecraft, some of which have a distinctive 'insectoid' look to them. This game is endless and it doesn't seem to have a level format. You just move forward and shoot. The backgrounds will change from time to time from planetary surfaces to space scenes and eventually they will start repeating once you blast this particularly large alien formation.

- 0.22: Mirko Buffoni added Vulgus (Capcom 1984). Colors are wrong unless I find the color proms. High score save supported. I played around with dipswitches: They are almost right, though, but there should be also a sound toggle while in attract mode. Thanks to Toninho and Paul Leaman for the information on Vulgus. Game is playable with wrong colors and sound. Control: Arrows = Move around, CTRL = Fire and ALT = Big Missile. Known issues: Colors are wrong. Manual correction is a foolish! Sound speed should be accurate. It seems not to use FM. Anyone confirm?
- 2nd October 1996: Rik dumped Vulgus (Japan?).
