Vectrex compilation coming soon to iPad and iPhone

The Vectrex is an insanely cool piece of kit – you really need to see one in person to understand the magic. For those of you who don’t know anyone with a Vectrex, you’ll be able to test out a number of the system’s games in the near future when Vectrex Regeneration hits the App Store for the iPad and iPhone.

Vectrex Regeneration will include all 19 official Vectrex releases, with plans to include a number of popular homebrew titles under way. The app will also boast leaderboards and support for the popular iCade peripheral.

Obviously some of the magic is going to be lost due to the way the Vectrex screen works, but if you’re looking to test out the system’s games before taking the plunge, this app might be right up your alley.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Vectrex

Vectors are awesome.

The Vectrex is a video game console with an in-built vector monitor, the only home video game system to ever use one. The result is some pretty amazing and unique visuals, although you have to use screen overlays for any kind of colour. Getting a system that works is becoming harder with each passing year, but it’s really something you need to see in the flesh.
