Vector Vaders for the Vectrex, the original first home brew game released in 1996 by John Dondzila, available from www.classicgamecreations.com -
Here's where it all started, the first NEW Vectrex Game Since 1984 - build in 1996!
Vector Vaders is a Vectrex "Invaders" type game. A game which for some reason, was never originally created for the Vectrex. Every other home system had one, so I felt this was a great choice for my first Vectrex programming effort.
Since there are so many vectors involved in drawing all hose invaders, the game tends to run a bit slow until you kill few invaders. As a result, when the level starts, there is some slight flickering (The Beta-Testers have mentioned this is only a very minor annoyance).
Aside from that, it plays well. The flying saucer with the mystery points is here, the 10,20 and 30 point invaders are here, and so are the bunkers. There are increasing skill levels, high score recording and a chance to win a free base to increase your score.
