Vectrex Game Project Title


Project Status

  • Alpa release candidate version 0.1


  • At the end of past year's Vector War, due to one yet undiscovered programming bug, Vec-Man was able to escape the Ghost Circuitry and discovered that he is living inside some very strange computer system, filled with numbers and ruled by a mighty digital processor.
  • Exploring this new world, he once again found himself trapped inside an ever changing numerical maze.
  • Struggling to compute his way out of this labyrinth, he is now desperatly trying to bring order to the arithmetic chaos around him, ever fearing the dangers of miscalculating his next move...

How To Play

  • Find out for yourself ;-)


  • This somehow came out of nowhere.
  • I should have listened to Malban, who insisted that first I finish at least some of the many unfinished Vectrex projects I have started during the past years, but reflexes got the better of me...
  • My son and I were playing Vectrex together. First he played Vec-Man, then he played Rotor. And then he had an idea, something that he wanted to play...
  • So, over night, I hacked a quick prototype. I re-used large parts of the Vec-Man game engine code, some parts of the rotor code, and added some vector lists from various unfinished projects.

Be warned!!!

  • I left some bugs in the code...
