About The Game
Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is a side scrolling action platformer channeling the golden age of classic 16-bit action games in a refined, full-throttle quest for revenge.
Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider’s design holds the best classic action game elements in the laser-precise sights of its starring ninja, keeping combat snappy, responsive and challenging.

Conceived as a tool to uphold a totalitarian state, the Moonrider has rejected its intended purpose, instead choosing a relentless battle for vengeance against its creators and fellow super soldiers.
