The much-heralded console favorite Vigilante 8 brings its
signature auto combat action to the Game Boy Color in explosive form. As
in the console versions, a cast of groovin' futuristic drivers are
warped into the '70s, a time of bell bottoms and bottomed-out oil wells.
In pure survival-of-the-fittest fashion, drivers must rid the
Southwestern landscape of fellow gas-guzzling vehicles in order to keep
on movin'. Whether playing against computerized vehicles or linked to a
friend's Game Boy for one-on-one or cooperative battles, the action is
fueled with five battle arenas and special weapons for each vehicle.
Where else can One drive a camper armed with a swarm of killer bees or a
school bus that emits noxious fumes?
