Xmas Space Race (Free ROM Download)

As I didn’t have time to write any new Xmas themed games for 2016, I thought I’d make a little festive mod to one of my existing ones.

Xmas Space Race” plays the same as the hidden 2 player game “Space Race“, found on my “Galaxy Wars : Space Launcher” cartridge. This version adds Christmas trees and a single player mode where you race against the Vectrex!

Happy holidays folks!

Vector Clock (Free ROM Download)

Just for fun, I made a simple vector clock for Vectrex. Dont expect the timing to be super accurate but it does stay in sync for quite some time  😉

You can adjust the hour by pressing and holding button1 and holding the joystick in the left or right direction to adjust. Minutes are adjusted in the same way with button 2. Button 3 resets the second hand and button 4 toggles minute/second dots on/off. The clock plays one of 13 different pieces of music every hour.
