If you didn't already know, the Retro Programming - Vectrex Academy 2021 course offered by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Peer Johannsen through Pforzheim University (Hochschule Pforzheim) is well underway. Some students have posted work that could benefit from testing and your feedback.

Below is the comment posted on b Peer on Vector Forums along with the link to the 2021 project gallery page. Make all replies to either the "Vectrex Academy 2021" post thread on Vector Forums, or direct to Peer Johannsen's email address.

"Greetings everyone,
here are the latest news of the Vectrex Academy 2021:

All the projects are on track. Some have already reached what I would call a very early alpha status, which is quite amazing considering the fact that, just 7 weeks ago, none of the students had even heard of a Vectrex before. Two of the students are brave enough to have their alpha candidates already put out to the public for some very early alpha testing :)

Alpha test binaries of projects "Frog Jump" and "Racetrex" are available for download by means of the gallery page. There are also links on the project pages for playing the games in Dr. Snuggles' online emulator in your web browser.

It would be really really great if some of you guys out there find the time to take a look and try these games and voice your opinions and some early feedback here on the forum. This would be quite rewarding for the students and a great help for them while continuing their work on the projects.

Many Cheers,
