A faster and sleeker Jill of the Jungle!
In Vinyl Goddess from Mars all you have to do is get from point a to point b, while on the way being assaulted by enemies, by keys (!) and by other collectibles. Yep, if you've played Jill of the Jungle before you will feel right at home. The game not only plays like that oldie sidescroller platformer but it also looks similar, while the poses of the female character when jumping, sitting or just walking about are similar. The levels are also similar, tile bit less pixilated than with the Jill games. But they also have a bit more depth in that they are more evocative, as they are helped by background images that create a very faux 16 bit feel for the game. Also, the game has that shareware feel about it, I'd think deliberately so, rather than being a side effect of fast production times. So, all things considered, if you loved Xargon or Jill, this game will fit right in there, a little less pixilated but still holding tight to that early 90s shareware platformer vibe. I only wished the game wasn't as hard, at least later on, but that might just be me losing my edge, so don't let that keep you from downloading it.
