Robot Arena is a soon to be released Vectrex game inspired by the original arcade video game classic Robotron: 2084.
This new game is Thomas Sontowski's first homebrew for the Vectrex. It’s a very fast shooter type game and like Robotron uses a dual-joystick setup (you need two analogue Vectrex controllers). Fortunately, if you only have a single Vectrex controller the game is still very playable.
To really appreciate this game you need to see it running on a real Vectrex. The game play graphics are in vectors, and they are fast and intense. As the game levels progress, there is a huge amount of independently moving vector “sprites” on the screen – I’ve never seen so much screen activity in any other released Vectrex game. Thomas has optimised the display of the graphics and their appearance is flicker free.
Remember folks, you saw it here first :)
