It looks like the environmentalists were right. In the year 2049, Earth has become so damaged due to littering and pollution that the human race has left to seek out new planets to colonize. In an effort to repair the damage done to the planet, mechanized Orbots have been created to clean up while mankind is off exploring. Trouble occurs when an Orbot named Raster is accidentally attached to a nuclear missile. Raster renames himself WarHead and declares himself ruler of Earth. VectorMan, another Orbot who is in charge of transporting nuclear waste to the sun for disposal, returns to Earth to find all the other Orbots under the control of WarHead. Now, it is up to the transforming VectorMan to save the planet.
- All the stages and characters in VectorMan were created with pre-rendered 3D models.
- The original name of WarHead, Raster, is a reference to the computer term, raster graphics.
