Title: New Vectrex Homebrew - Hera Primera
Post by: TrekMD on January 15, 2017, 19:27:58 PM
Forum 64 member Peiselulli has been working on a new game for the Vectrex.  This game is a clone of Juno First, an arcade game that has been adapted to the Atari 2600, and it goes by the name Hera Primera. You can see the game in action in the video below.  This is still a work in progress but it does look very nice so far...

This looks classic.

It's still a WIP but it does look great.  Juno First is an excellent game to start with and having it adapted to the Vectrex is certainly nifty.  Actually, when I look at that screen I think another good one to adapt for the Vectrex is Beamrider!

Wow that looks stunning. Juno Fist is a classic shooter that's a little under appreciated.
