Photo 1: My best score under emulation. Notice the Continue bar is nearly depleted. That's because I waited to the last possible moment before calling up my HighScoreEvidence Notepad file.

Photo 2: My score displayed after the Continue option had expired.

Photo 3: My HighScoreEvidence Notepad file over the Game Selection screen. The Atari (publisher) column is on the far right, where you can see Vanguard.

Notes: It's been a long time since I played this game, but yesterday I watched the No Swear Gamer's Youtube video reviewing it and thought I'd play it again. Now I remember why I don't play it much. The controls take getting used to, which is not a problem, but I get gramps in my hands playing it.

Vanguard was one of my favorite games as a kid! If I remember correctly it's the first multi directional shooter!

You remember correctly Rob. The multi-directional shooting aspect was quite something to see back then. Forwards. Backwards. To the left. To the right. You have to keep that Joystick (or D-pad) in constant motion. It wears me out. I'm not as young as I once was. lol.
