Description

A futuristic space shooter (SHMUP) made with artisanal, old-school vector graphics, Vector-Z: Space Ranger is like no game you've ever played before… unless like us, you remember pumping quarters into arcade machines in the 1980s!

In Vector-Z: Space Ranger you pilot a lone starfighter to defend the galaxy against the alien hordes... some even have shields you have to time your shots to break through. There’s also an asteroid bonus level where you can break up asteroids for points, and break up bigger asteroids for power-ups, including bonus shields, extra lives, score multiplier, and a faster fire rate.

HINTS:
• Vector-Z’s ship holds 2 missiles. One fires from each wing, so there’s a slight offset. There is also a brief reload time.
• Aliens are worth more points when they are attacking you. Even more points when they are really close!
• Go for the bonus points from accuracy: at 50% you get 100 pts per hit, 200 pts at 75%, 400 pts at 90%, and 800 bonus pts per hit with 100% accuracy!
• Aim for the bigger asteroids to collect hexagonal power-ups
