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.

Xmas Cart 2015 contains two games :

Parcel Panic

In “Parcel Panic” you play as one of Santa Claus’ helpers, using your grabbing arm to pick presents off the assembly line conveyor belts. Santa Claus doesn’t tolerate mistakes so be careful!

Xmas Cart 2015

I will be making 5 ‘limited edition’ cartridges (the larger box pictured above). This cartridge differs from the regular edition by including a small LED christmas tree attached to the cartridge which flashes in response to game events.  These cartridges will be awarded to 5 customers (order numbers will be randomly selected by computer).

For those who wish to buy a ‘limited edition’ tree, or for those who missed last years release, I have made available a double pack including “Xmas Cart 2014” and a LED modded “Xmas Cart 2015” cartridge. Please note that there are no colour-changing USB modded trees available with any release this year, only the modded LED tree cart.
