Veigues by Game Arts (PC88, 1988)

During their cooperation with Game Arts, Sierra ported all the PC-88 games of that company to IBM, with one exception: Veigues (ヴェイグス). Why they omitted this “Detailed, stylish and memorable robot action game […] let down only by its jerky scrolling” (Jap-Sai) is anybody’s guess. It may have to do with the fact that Veigues used a custom palette, not just the eight digital colors, so porting would have been more complicated.

In 1990, Veigues was ported to the PC Engine by Victor Musical Industries. This version was sold in the USA as Veigues Tactical Gladiator, integrating the subtitle fully into the name. You can read some reviews here and here.
