8I haven't played the original, but the impression I get is that this must be a great conversion. Everything feels professionally done. Pure beat'em up's aren't my favourite though, so I can't give a perfect score.
10Vigilante wasn't the best of the side-scrolling beat-em-ups of it's time. With that in mind this is still a perfect conversion of an imperfect game. A lot of fun and well worth a download.
8Great game! It's difficult at the beginnig but after some practise, that's really fun. It looks verry professional. Amazing game. Congrats.
