Story

The player character is a special agent for an organization called “The Order” that rules the world in league with the “Angels”. The Angels are a mysterious ancient race, mercenaries which sought to conquer the earth and made a pact with the emerging organization.

The player discovers the hidden truths that the Order uses for world domination. He then turns against his “Order” and leads earth’s resistance as a “Vindicator” with his arcane knowledge to oppose the Angels.

    Awesome! I cant wait until the demo is released…

    The game has potential, but is far far too hard. I cannot get past the first level. The part when you walk slowly through the water and cannot jump to avoid arrows is impossible! Am I missing something here?

      Actually yes, you are. If you keep “down” pressed you will dodge and avoid being hit by spears and other projectiles. The game is hard but should be way easier now that you know this. :) You need different strategies for handling the different kinds of angels, but by shooting, dodging and jumping at the right time the angels should be manageable. Good luck! :)

    10/10 for the music!

  4. […] Hätte es jemals eine NES-Umsetzung von God’s Army gegeben – sie sähe aus wie Vindicator – Uprising. Christopher Walken wäre allerdings nur acht Pixel hoch […]
