New Vectrex Game: P1X3L-pushr

January 7, 2014

Just received a mail by ALeX, promoting a very nice new game for our Vectrex:

 

We just released a new Vextrex Game:
http://alex.kazik.de/278/vectrex-p1x3l-pushr/

 

We is P1X3L.net, namely Retrofan for graphics and I (ALeX) for code. There is no real module and no overlay, just a rom file and the source code..

 

It took some while but here is the new Vectrex game “P1X3L-pushr”, which is a remake of our own C64 game. The game was created for the Coding Compo at the DoReCo-Party 2013. Sorry that it took that long to make it public. This is our first Vectrex release and my first steps on the 6809, which seems a great processor. The archive includes not only the rom file but also the full source – have fun with it!

 

Since I don’t own an actual Vectrex it’s (almost) only be tested on an emulator. I’m open for suggestions but mostly for upcoming work since this game is done – but feel free to improve it yourself.

New Video of NAGOYA ATTACK

Some more video of NAGOYA ATTACK, a new vectrex game by Chris Malcolm:

"A beta version of one of a few Vectrex games I'm working on at the moment. Feedback appreicated. It's a little rough around the edges at the mo and could do with optimisation and some balancing of the levels but it should be playable enough. Single life survival game inspired by Taitos Minivader tester board."

3D printable Cartridge Cases

February 16, 2013

3D printable Cartridge Cases

How long have we waited for this? Get your hands on a 3D Printer and print out the cartridge case! Posted by Computer Nerd Kev at groups.google.com

"I just put online a project I've been playing with for some time. It's a Vectrex cartridge printable using one of those new fangled 3D printer things everyone's talking about. The details are mostly on that page. With a bit of luck this might help a small few of the people suffering from the lack of new cartridge cases being made.

I'm contemplating selling small quantities as well, so feel free to show your interest. Postage will be from Australia, I'll have to think about the pricing, might post back."

Here's the link to the 3D case:

Fury Unlimited | Update July 2012 | Hellhole

July 26, 2012

HELLHOLE by FuryUnlimited
 
Sector-X IV becomes a reality! Hellhole will be released on August 11th at the Classic Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. Internet pre-orders will begin shipping on August 13th. Many of you will remember that Hellhole was announced years ago on my website, and subsequently canceled due to innovation fatigue ;)  ...until now!

You will not be able to plug in an Atari Driving Controller to play Hellhole. It won't work because the Vectrosis Spinner and button controls are together in one controller and plugged into one controller port. I am not adding in functionality for the above described abomination. You can play Hellhole with a standard controller as an alternative.

PRE-ORDERING HELLHOLE/VECTROSIS
Vectrosis Spinner + Hellhole Set:  $75
Shipping: $6 Domestic (USA), $12 International

Hellhole only:  $30
Shipping: $3 Domestic (USA), $6 International

A note by Kristof Tuts:

Please take a look to www.kristofsnewvectrexgames.comli.com/
 
Please note that during purchase, a choice can be made out of 3 different overlays. (check the pictures on the ordering page).
 
Just let me know if you want to buy this game and please specify also the overlay-number. (Note that eventually, I could supply up to maximum 2 overlays per package, additional cost = 4Euro/overlay).
 

Main Features of vector pilot:
Calibration menu to compensate drift.
"difficulty" menu (1=easy, 2 = normal, 3 = hard)
A pause-button (button 3)
High score table
demo mode when game is left alone.
NEW ! The cartridge contains a non-volatile memory chip (E²prom) to save calibration settings and up to 9 highscore entries.
A 3D rendered animation during the hidden level
Secret game features can be unlocked.

Cheers, and thanks for your extreme long patience with me !
