Customer Reviews


Unfortunately I didn't discover Vectrex until it was too late. I LOVED Tempest in the arcade. When I found out there was a vector graphics game system I had to have it. But I was late to the game and it had already been pulled from the market. And now, just by happenstance I found this app! I absolutely love it. The little added touch of being able to play without the overlays just goes to show you a lot of time went into this app.

The way an emulator should be

This emulator sets the standard for how to do it right. The 'entry room' is the perfect touch. The games are smooth and the interface is at once intuitive and natural. The options are easy to use and while there are a wide variety of choices to make the user can make as many or as few as they want...and it's easy! Thank you for keeping the vectrex alive and fresh.


Vectrex was my first gaming system because parents didn't want to clutter up the TV in the living room (and all of our other TVs were black and white)... I had every game, except those for the light pen so the titles that you buy for this emulator are spot-on (except maybe for the Star Trek name change). Please keep putting out the other titles and I will keep buying them! This is a flashback to my youth; my nerdy, nerdy youth!
