Vectrex programming at Pforzheim University – Back to the Future – part II

Hach, the good old times! at “Back to the future andt” meant still good “part II”, the “Reloaded” only just came decades later.
As the last year the robotic hospital consigned NAOs and indicating whether they are on the road to recovery, I have to clarify. [EDIT: NAOs are back safe and sound.] At any rate, currently set at Pforzheim University to the 20 Students again over backward – much to the delight of all fans Vectrex. Led by Professor Dr. Peer Johannsen learn the students the hardware dependent programming, while almost incidentally created a variety of Vectrexspielen. the “by the way” does not reflect the high cost and large use of students approximately. In the Professor Dr. Johannsen established and currently held Vectrex-Projektgalerie 2017 you can get a good idea of ​​the Games and their current state of development.
In addition to the fact sheet with game description and screenshots of the games this year there is also some videos and interesting design sketches, with which one quickly gets a good and close impression of the very diverse projects. Has made me particularly addressed the opening image and the design sketch of Dragonsnake and very curious.

The students I wish every success in learning the hardware-oriented programming – on the Vectrex!
