A beta version of one of a few Vectrex games I'm working on at the moment. Feedback appreicated. It's a little rough around the edges at the mo and could do with optimisation and some balancing of the levels but it should be playable enough. Single life survival game inspired by Taitos Minivader tester board.

I enjoyed playing this game, but getting past level 4 seems impossible!
I put the YouTube and this Atariage link in a post at the Vector Gaming forum for other Vectrex heads to appreciate.

A bit unbalanced at the moment I admit ,hehe. You can definately get higher than level 4 though, you just need to time your shots well ;) 16 levels at the moment, then it loops.

SWEET! This is an awesome twist on the classic Space Invaders idea and the music is nice and catchy!
Now if only I had a Vectrexians overlay to make it look as nice as the video :(

Excellent work, keep it up

Great to hear about a new Vectrex game developer and a new game! In the video the beta of Nagoya Attack looks promising, especially the sound is great. I'll download the binary and will try to find some time to send you feedback for the beta. Thank you very much, Chris, for your effort and the free beta!

Cool beta. Thanks for sharing. A little too tough early on but I still like the variation on the SI theme.

When this, and your other games, are released and ready for purchase, please put me down on the list of interested buyers! If you've got an e-mail notification list, I'd love to be on it, too! :-)
