Vector gaming forums

September 11, 2011


Being a cross of the old Vectrex forums (R. I. P.) and a vector gaming forum on Yahoo! Groups (also long dead!), the vector gaming forums takes things a few steps further by also having discussions on raster vector ports and even current vector-like online and portable device/cell phone games.

There are also forums for any kind of game console, from the oldest Pong machines to the most current gaming rigs available such as the XBox 360, but the main focus are on the beloved wire-frame games.  And even though people who join can have whatever avatar they want (just as long as it abides by Proboardsí TOS), there are currently a little over two dozen vector icons  on the site to choose from as they wish, covering coin-op, Vectrex, raster ported, and even some current online vector-like games.

revival-studios.com - Shifted! Launch

August 21, 2011

An announcement by revival-studios.com

 

After a lot of hard work, I am proud to announce my new vectrex game release: Shifted!

Shifted is an action puzzle game that requires quick thinking and quick responses.
You have to shift columns up and down to make combinations of gems on the centre row.
The higher the combination, the more points you will earn.

The game is easy to pickup and play, and according to my betatesters becomes more and more addictive each time you play it. In addition to the survival mode where you have to gain points and survive as long as possible for a highscore (which you can upload to the internet), there is also a survival mode in 3 different difficulty settings, where you are faced with different challenges each round (20 challenges on easy, 30 on medium and 40 challenges on hard), which allow you to unlock additional rewards and gameplay modes.

More info and screenshots can be found on http://www.revival-studios.com/?page=123

Game features:
- Survival and challenge game modes
- Easy pickup and play gameplay
- Total of 90 challenges accross 3 difficulties.
- Internet highscore uploading
- Online rewards system
- Hidden gamemodes
- Vecvox support

Price is 29,95 Euros (this includes worldwide shipping)


Short Update by George

August 8, 2011

Hello Vectrex Fans : ), a short update by George:
 
 
SUNDANCE
On schedule - just 3 weeks away! If you haven't pre-ordered yet, please do it! You get a free iron-on
transfer for pre-ordering. Sundance now has 4 different game modes (originally only 3 were planned).
The game is super fun with 1 or 2 players!
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1_1.htm
 

WARRIOR - Last Call!
There are 7 Warrior games remaining for pre-order, #'s 93-99 (#100 was sold early by request).
Several people have requested that I hold a game for them, but at this point with so few remaining
and my desire to sell this out, payment is required. These will sell first-come first-served,
so please get your payment in as soon as possible. I am not planning a second run of these.
It's too expensive to have the overlays made with a minimum 100 units at this cost, and
I will not sell this game in a stripped down version primarily because the overlay defines the
entire play area. Please hurry!
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1m1_1.htm
 
 
Next email update will be when Sundance is released at the end of the month.
The Sundance web page will be updated prior to the release (additional screenshots, etc).
 
George

August 1, 2011

An Update from George at furyunlimited.com

 

SUNDANCE
Surprise! Remake of the Cinematronics sleeper hit! Sundance will begin shipping
August 29th. The game is nearly completed now, and I have some final bugtesting
and cleanup. Pre-orders come with a free Sundance iron-on transfer! Low $30 price.
Allow up to 24 hours for a pre-order confirmation email.
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1_1.htm

 

WAR OF THE WORLDS
All pre-orders have shipped!
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1m2_1.htm
 
WARRIOR
Update to site coming soon! Less than 20 games still available for pre-order!
The 2-player clone of the original is completed. Now I'm working on the many
different opponents in the 1-player game.
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1m1_1.htm

 

REVIVAL
New issue now available - tons of Vectrex coverage and more!
Subscriber copies have already shipped. If you're not a subscriber,
please don't hesitate to become one. Because of the high number of
subscribers, I am already down to just a few copies.
www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m2_1.htm

 

3D SECTOR-X
Sold Out! RIP!

Thanks for all your past purchases and support!


furyunlimited - June Update

June 3, 2011

A note by George from FURY: 

WAR OF THE WORLDS
Released! These will start shipping this weekend. I will ship them all as quickly as possible. Your patience is appreciated regarding the delayed release. I'm extremely happy with this game and hope that you all enjoy it! Any new orders received will ship in July, as I will be shipping pre-ordered games for the next 3-4 weeks. http://www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1_1.htm

 

WARRIOR
Update to my site coming soon, with new images. Note that due to the extra time that it took to complete War of the Worlds, I have moved the Warrior release to October - sorry about this! If this is a problem for any of you, you can request a refund. I have over twenty still available for pre-order. This is a limited release of 100 games. www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1m1_1.htm
 
I, CYBORG
Due to constant inquiries, I am opening I, Cyborg up once again to orders. Specifically 50 copies, numbered 251-300. I sold 250 I, Cyborg games between '04 and '08. This will be identical in every way to the original release, so if you already own it there is no need to purchase it again. Consider this to be a continuation of the original release after an extended hiatus. www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m1m7_1.htm
 
REVIVAL
The publisher has notified me that Issue #43 will be out soon. The print quality has been improved (yet again!). If you are a subscriber, your magazine will ship immediately after I receive them. If you're not a subscriber, become one! The deal that I offer is the best available! www.furyunlimited.com/_sgg/m2_1.htm
