I have completed my first vectrex game, REVECTOR. I don't have a
webpage up for it, but you can download the zip file here:
Instructions in a PDF and the game in a BIN file are included in the
ZIP file. REVECTOR is designed to be most fun in a 2 player
simultaneous game, but does include a computer controlled enemy for 1
player gameplay with a single controller. Gameplay is an arena combat
style game where your goal is to shoot and destroy the enemy vehicle
while picking up power-up items to help you destroy the enemy vehicle.
Shots and vehicles bounce off of the walls.
Email comments/questions welcome, especially if you test this out on
your vectrex and not just the emulator! I have been playing the game
on my vectrex for a while now, and welcome your feedback.
ps - I appologize if this double posts, my keyboard just went crazy a
few minutes ago!
I tried it out on the console via VecRAM cart. Nice! The computer just
wipes me out! I'll have to practice! And the manual is well done!
Professional look too! Thanks!
Suddenly there are more and more games to play! :)

Hey, I don't have VecRAM, but if you put it into Vectrex cart,
I'll buy it.

I'm here, always listening for talk on new Vectrex developments.

Yup here... I chip in very occasionally... I buy pretty much all the new
games taht come out... try to do my 'bit'... leant Richard Hutchinson a
lightpen for some project or another.
I think I have one of the most complete collections of Vectrex stuff in the
UK... commercially released stuff that is.
Great! Go for it! Want suggestions .. just post a request and you will
get a bunch of RGV activity!

Nice job! Very well done!
I noticed in your instruction manual that you are allowing the distribution of
cartridges "at cost". I suggest that you send your zip file to Mark Shaker.
He sells many Vectrex games in cartridge form "at cost".
Here's the link:
It's always been that way. Because r.g.vectrex is outside the normal
r.g.video.* hierarchy, it doesn't attract as much attention. That has
it's good side. Never fear, there are plenty of us lurking around

For those of you who wish to have a cart of Revector, I give
permission for them to be produced "at cost" in the instruction
manual. I personally will not be selling the carts, but others may.
Is Mark of "Mark's Vectrex Carts" still making carts for ~$10? If so
go here and ask for one:
It will run nicely on his "regular" boards.
btw - I fixed a tiny bug that could cause a random noise (a small
squeal on my vectrex) when the very first wave starts in revector. I
have updated the binary file for those that already downloaded the
older version. I think this is probably the last bug. Here is the
I will be adding a front page for the game sometime soon which will be
found here (not up yet, but keep checking):
ps - has anyone tried the game 2 player yet?
