Originally developed for Epic to be Jill of the Jungle II, the game became Vinyl Goddess From Mars when Union Logic decided to publish games independently. Gameplay is certainly reminiscent of Jill of the Jungle, but the graphics look more like Xargon, especially the identical overhead map system. This game takes place in the year 200 billion, when Vinyl's spaceship crashed on a strange planet while she was on her way to the esteemed intergalactic B Movie convention. Vinyl can jump very high and use a variety of weapons to fight monsters during her quest to gather pieces of her spaceship so that she can make it to the convention on time. There are a lot of secret areas, making exploration important. Controls are generally good, although Vinyl slides a bit when she stops running. The graphics, music and voices are also pretty good. There are 3 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
Episode 1 - Forests of Old
Episode 2 - Caverns of Chaos
Episode 3 - The Return
