New Vectrex Homebrew - Snowball
« on: December 01, 2018, 17:19:26 PM »
Vector Republic is releasing a new game for the Vectrex as a budget release this year called Snowball.  The number of carts available is limited right now but more will be made available.




The price is £18 plus p&p (£4 UK, £9 EU, £10 Rest of World).

Snowball is a simple 2 player vs game where you and another player control an elf each in a snowball fight, first to 3 wins.

This edition is not limited but there are only have 50 PCBs on order for this so it would be some time to restock if they sell out. If you would just like a ROM of the game with your own personalised title page message then the price is £5; if you are buying the cart version.

Drop Vector Rebpublic an email on enquiries@vectorrepublic.co.uk with your address and they will send you a PayPal link for the total to your location.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Nice! It looks like it plays like the game Outlaw for Atari 2600.

Yes, the gameplay is similar but Christmas themed. :)

It looks amazing, did you see his Outrun homage?

Yes on both counts.  Unfortunately, the Outrun demo is just that, a demo.  He doesn't intend to make it into a game.  :(

I believe he said he's planning on making something similar but not Outrun.  If it is similar enough, it doesn't matter.  :)
