The skinheads have taken Madonna hostage. Take the law into your own hands! That was the mission for Vigilante.
Vigilante was a left to right scrolling beat em up very similar in vain to Kung-Fu Master.
The graphics in the arcade game were probably the games strongest point as the game play was some what lacking. The main character only had a few moves to defeat the baddies, other games had few moves but they still played better.
In my opinion Vigilante was simply a very average arcade game So lets see how the 8-bit versions turned out.
