More Vector Madness! (Defender Vector Hack)

Recommended Posts

Here's a "vector" hack of Defender. The game is still a total flicker-fest, I had to paste together several screenshots to make the one below. Normal screenshots seem to miss half of what's on the screen at any given time. ;)

Hey I dig it! Defender was actually one of my projects after my first 'vector' hack but I wasn't successful with what I wanted to do.. then thought.. "why not make it vector too?", But I never did it! It's cool to see it being done though. I like how it looks :)

:!: If you used Dasm to create it, somehow it ends up being 12 bytes too large (so it won't work with Stella).

MY rough translation, is just the outline of the object.

 

Like the ship, well you see it, but nothing in the middle of it.

OK, I'm showing my ignorance here but what exactly is "Vector"?

Vector graphics are drawn by a line from point A to point B(Like connect the dot). These hacks are not real Vector Graphics, just graphics made in the vector style. A good example of real vector graphics is Asteroids or Tempest in the arcade or the Vectrex home system.

 

I did the Space Invaders Vector hack just to see what it would look like, and it has grown from there. :D
