For a long time it had become rather quiet with the publications of Vectrex games. Today is surprising the game “Hexed!” appeared. The game itself is not me prior to date, therefore I give essentially the website again:
In Hexed! is it to Vector 21 and Royal 21 Now to the third card game from George Pelonis for the Vectrex. Music and design of the cards are removed from the area Voodoo and dark magic. The recently published game is used as Fury Unlimited, with instructions, delivered module inside a plastic. Hexed! costs 40 USD (that. 30 EUR) including shipping. Orders are directly on the Website of Hexed! given up, Payments are made via PayPal.
As is ever the current state in the Vectrex homebrew development?
The very active George Pelonis (Fury Unlimited, U.S.A.) would have 2012 recently published Warrior, its shipping but increased slightly. So currently wait many collectors and players on their copy of Warrior. The procurement of the necessary for the preparation of the Games PCBs caused problems and delayed delivery. Neben Warrior bot George Pelonis in 2012 new controller (Overdrive, Starblast, YETI, Vectrosis), offered on its website, are partially but already sold out. Next game Tailgunner is actually expected, the intertitles Hexed! comes as quite surprising.
Vectrex homebrew developer Kristof Tuts (Tutstronix, Belgium) had end 2011 with the excellent Vector Pilot geklotzt. Until the appearance of Vector Hopper, a clone of the Arcadehit Q * bert or Vector Patrol (Moon Patrol), should there be some time, although long been promising screenshots can be admired from two games on the website. Kristof's games are well known for their quality, However, unfortunately for their long development period of several years.
Martijn Wenting (Revival Studios, Netherlands) currently being developed for other retro platforms such as the ZX81 or the Commodore Pet. The games on these platforms are well received, However, by increased development for the Vectrex, where the last game Shifted in 2011 published. In Martijns pipeline for the Vectrex include MVR Racing, a car racing game with extensive track as seen from above and Vector Arcade: Volume 1, a collection of 5 Vectrexspielen on a module.
Michael Borrmann would have 2011 with Vec Fu, a karate match, landed a graphically as playful successful debut. Michael had a follow-up project “Blocks” announced, the on his website can be downloaded as a very early trial and played. The current development status is unknown.
