Vectorman has a rather far-fetched sci-fi plot that resembles a more action-packed version of the kid's movie Wall-E (although, the game came first). The entire human race leaves the planet while orbots are cleaning up our mess. However, the lead orbot's head is accidentally replaced with an atomic bomb, and he orders all the orbots on the planet to stop cleaning and begin planning an ambush for the returning humans. Being out of range to receive this transmission, Vectorman is still programmed to help the humans, so he fights the other orbots. You play Vectorman in this run-and-gun platformer. You can find various weapons to use and must blast away the dangerous orbots to make the Earth safe for humans.

Music

Vectorman's music is primarily up-tempo techno and sounds aptly futuristic. Jon Holland did such a great job with composing it that it became one of the few American games of the time to have its soundtrack released. The track titles are named after the days in the game.
