This is frickin awesome! 😃
Seriously though, the folks over at Rantmedia Games did an awesome job put this compilation app out for the IOS devices, also the fact it's free. 😀 This seriously makes me want to get most of those games that I don't have for the Vectrex yet. Although I have to say that there's some flaws with this app, such as if you tap on one of the game boxes twice quickly, you can't view the game box anymore unless you reset the app. Also there's some slowdowns (specially in Berzerk, although I've never experienced the vectrex version of Berzerk, but I doubt it is that slow when played on the real thing) and lagging (which can mess up your gameplay 😠). And the voices for Spike are missing. Despite these flaws, I still highly recommend this app if you're into old school video games, I also recommend using the iCade controller for arcade experience (although I don't know about the driving games such as Pole Position or Hyper Chase). I hope in the future that Rantmeda Games will fix these flaws/bugs and put in more games like Clean Sweep and Spinball. 🙂
Thank you devs!
I was in Jr High when Vectrex came out and I wanted one so bad. Only ever got to see Armor Attack for 5 minutes at a school friend's house before he had enough and it we were out the door. This app is a pure joy. I feel like the richest kid on the block in 1982. The library is amazing. [kudos to the reviewers with an even deeper knowledge of what remains to be emulated but this is a very deep collection.] I've played all the cartridges just to check them out and they all run well and load fast on my 6+. The signature vector look, remembered from the arcade machines, is well emulated. Sound's good. I don't have a game pad and that is a definite drawback but no fault of the app.
I was particularly delighted by the Scramble port. The included games could be hours of fun. The indie titles are fun too. Special mention to the card game Vector 21. Also, I never played Flappy Bird -or whatever it was called- before the Dev pulled it, but couldn't escape its legendary impact on the gaming landscape. Thanks for letting me give it a try with Veccy Bird!
This is a project worth supporting. Get in there and have some fun.
MFi thumb stick and button changes please
I have to dock three stars. For starters; only adding d-pad support to MFi, when the left thumb stick should have obviously been used instead; or at least in addition. Also the button layout doesn't make sense. Button A should be 1. B should be 2. X should be 3. Y should be 4. The way you have it now makes referencing the overlay controls impossibly frustrating and just too confusing to be fun. Also, the buttons don't disappear from the screen when you're using an MFi controller. Lastly it's missing the voices from Spike. Maybe others, but that's the one I'm most familiar with. Please make these changes.
