Vectorblade - Quick gameplay

Received this from Sean Kelly in the mail today. This is a game that really shows off what the Vectrex is capable of. It is a shooter that has varied game elements 'inspired' by other games we know and loved back in the day. It is very tricky to film a Vectrex but I think I've finally got a method down for this. Requires having to use my camcorders 24fps cinema mode so that the Vectrex is drawing faster than the camera can pick up and that reduces the flicker I usually get when filming. The audio is captured straight from my Vectrex Audio Tap I have installed along with the wonderful Buzz Off! kit to remove that nasty buzz. Hope you enjoy and be sure to check Pack Rat Video Games to put in a pre-order for a copy for yourself if this looks interesting to you.

When did you get your copy? Only asking as there have been like 3 updates to this game since I bought it with each update correcting game breaking glitches. So I've not played it too much more since I made that video. I think my cart came in a clear case and not blue colored.

I don't remember where I got it, but when must have been early to mid 2021. It's version V1.11. I haven't experienced any glitches. The cartridge is also LED lit, glowing a cool blue. As for game breaking glitches, Malban says there aren't any, Quote "In the last year “approximately” every month a new bug has been found. Some only small ones, but at least two bugs, which I’d call SERIOUS bugs. But not DEADLY SERIOUS, since to my knowledge no bug exists, that makes it impossible to play – but some bugs are really inconvenient". The bug, that “bugged” me most was fixed with V1.11 – a bug that could destroy all your gathered acchievements, highscores and saves. After the discovery of that bug I earnestly looked into what could be done to update “YOUR” (the 120 Vectroblades sold by myself) Vectorblade. Now – six months after that bug was found – I have the means to do so!". http://vide.malban.de/15th-of-july-get-your-vectorblade-update-v1-12.
