V-Theremin (FREE ROM DOWNLOAD)

Just a little sound toy I made a while back. It makes a rough emulation of a the theremin (musical instrument) using the Vectrex sound chip and may be controlled by one or two analogue joysticks.

Use analogue joystick(s) to control the V-Theremin.

Button 1 = Toggles Mute
Button 2 = Toggles between 1 and 2 analog sticks for control.
Button 4 (on either stick) allows you to crudely play melodies without moving up and down to control volume.

When using 1 joystick :

Joy 1 Y Axis = Volume
Joy 1 X Axis = Pitch

When using 2 joysticks :

Joy 1 Y Axis = Volume                                                                                                 Joy 2 X Axis = Pitch

“Save The Trees” is a fast paced shoot-em-up game of survival where the player must dodge or shoot falling presents and snowmen while ensuring to destroy every bomb that falls before it reaches the bottom of the screen and ruins Christmas!
