GCE Vectrex - ROM Hack

Berzerk Debugged is a version of the original Berzerk which no longer has crashes and has a few other bugs fixed. In the original version, there is a bug which causes the player to not receive a bonus for destroying all enemies on a level with ten robots. The crash exists at higher point ranges (5,000/7,000 points and above). At these point ranges, a high number of robots return fire simultaneously and overload the memory needed to keep track of all the projectiles. In addition, robots can no longer shoot through walls.

Birds of Prey

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - 1999

Birds of Prey is a Vectrex game similar to the Galaxian series, some might call it a homebrew port of Phoenix. The gameplay is similar to Galaga and consists of five waves that simply loop with increasing difficulty. Instead of using the analog stick you press buttons 1-2 to move left and right, while button 4 fires. It takes a few minutes to adjust but once you do you'll find the control scheme works fine. By pressing button 3 you can activate a shield once per wave (or re-use it if you lose a life) and this protects you from incoming fire and enemies. It's very handy and you'll want to use...

The game begins with a large enemy ship dropping mines onto the field as an ominous jingle plays, and moves from the top to the bottom of the screen, where it disappears. The player's ship starts in the middle of the field with 5 lives. Numerous mines then start popping up. The player must destroy all of the mines in order to progress to the next minefield.

Mine Storm II

GCE Vectrex - 1983

Mine Storm is the built-in game that came with every Vectrex unit. It was also released in a 3-D version that required the use of the Vectrex 3D Imager and Mine Storm 2 is a debugged version of Mine Storm. One of the built-in versions of Mine Storm had a glitch that made the game crash at level 13, so GCE decided to send a copy of Mine Storm 2 to gamers that wrote to the company and complained. This game is rare, because most of the gamers didn't know about the offer, and also because not many gamers got to level 13.

Mr. Boston: Clean Sweep

Patriots

Patriots

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - April 21, 1996

Patriots is a clone of a popular arcade game from the 80's. Patriots is faster and more challenging than other missile games. It is visually exciting, with many special effects, including fades, scaling and rotation. Game control is solid with additional options for those who need them.

Patriots III

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - 2002

Patriots III: Ballistics Busters is a completely rewritten version of the original game with three cannons and unlimited ammo. In this version, the player's cannons will require time to reload but never run out of missiles like in the previous versions. In addition, this version also has an option to control the player sites or cross hairs through analog controls, rather that with only digital controls. These controls more closely resemble the controls used in the arcade version which were that of a trackball.

Patriots Remix

Patriots Remix

GCE Vectrex - Released - 1999

PATRIOTS THE SPECIAL EDITION–I’ve only played the original Patriots in emulation a few times, and this seems like it has only minor changes (the bonus hidden game is even the same as on the original Patriots as well), just a slightly different pace and better sound. Here you must protect several cities from missiles raining down on them; maybe the missiles are in regards to the invaders wising up from V. Vaders TDC and realizing they should stop wasting manpower on you, and use machines and missiles instead to wreck havoc? Aircraft and smart missiles also add to this fun “remix” clone of...

Pitcher's Duel

Pitcher's Duel

GCE Vectrex - Unreleased - 2007

Pitcher's Duel was an unreleased Vectrex baseball game. A prototype of Pitcher's Duel was found though a private sale and was held until a high quality release could be done. Pitcher's Duel was eventually released at Classic Gaming Expo in both a retro-styled reproduction Vectrex box and also as a loose cartridge. While not a perfect reproduction of the game of baseball, this title is fairly accurate. Standard rules for baseball apply, however fielding, throwing and base runners are all controlled by the computer. At the start of the game Player 1 always pitches first. If a two player game is...

Repulse

Repulse

GCE Vectrex - Released - 1999

REPULSE–clone of the rare Eliminator vector game. I don’t know how it compares, since I never played the original (saw it, but never played it), but it’s addicting and can take a while, due to starting with five ships and then earning a new one with every successful elimination (sorry!) of the mother ship. Unfortunately firing a shot up the mother ship’s slim shaft is difficult, especially with sentry ships thrown in the mix, which a hit from them can send you careening across the screen. A fun, differently-paced challenge than the other games on here, but you need some pretty decent nerves to...

Revector

Revector

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - 2004

Your goal is to out score your opponent in a 7 minute timed match. You can score points by shooting your opponent or by picking up power-up items.

Thrust

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - 2004

Thrust is an unofficial homebrewed clone of the classic 8-bit microcomputer game of the same name. Thrust brings realistic physics and inertia-based movement into arcade games, directly influencing titles like Oids, as well as Exile from Audiogenic by the same author.

Tour De France

Tour De France

GCE Vectrex - Unreleased

There's two different track layouts (Game 1 and Game 2 options) and the objective is to place first while obtaining the quickest possible time. Pressing Left or Right on the analog stick moves your rider across the road, while Up is used for acceleration. The face buttons allow you to change gears (Slow, Medium or Fast), pause the game (a rarity on the Vectrex!), as well as grab the occasional water bottle from the side of the road (required to maintain energy levels so you don't slow down). The gameplay involves avoiding the sides of the track, while dodging debris and fellow riders; failing...

Vaboom!/Vectrace

Vaboom!/Vectrace

GCE Vectrex - Released - 2000

Also known as Ronen's Game Cart, Vaboom!/Vectrace is a bit of an unusual entry, as there aren't a lot of racing games for the system as it is, as far as Vectrace goes. And it might also seem to be a bit unusual for another Kaboom! clone to be made for the Vectrex as well. So this odd pairing of games actually makes this cartridge stand out a bit.

There are also several bonuses rather than just having a stack add up to 21 (which is a Blackjack) as well.

Vectrexagon

Vectrexagon

GCE Vectrex - Homebrew - 2016

Vectrexagon is a rhythm action game similar to Hexagon. You control a triangle that can be rotated around a central hexagonal shape. The goal is to avoid touching further hexagons approaching the central hexagon from the borders of the screen for as long as possible.
