Author Comments

Avoid obstacles, shoot down enemy threats, and collect bonuses.
green ring = 1,000 points
purple ring = 10,000 points
blue ring = extra shield
green X = nuke everything
purple X = increase score multipler
blue X = ammo refill

Steer and aim with the mouse, shoot with the mouse-button.
Pause with SPACE or ENTER.
Play in full-screen mode for full-effect. You can only pause with SPACE in full-screen mode due to flash-player security restrictions on keyboard input events (and if anyone knows a way around that then I'm all ears).

SEIZURE WARNING: this game contains a lot of colorfull flashes and whatnot - it's quite pretty really, but if you're prone to fits then be advised to procede with caution, (especially in full-screen mode).

BUG FIX: explosions weren't responding to mute!

BUG FIX: low-rider medal wasn't working - more precisely: it was working as "high-rider", (ie you had to stay at the top of the tunnel instead of the bottom!) - I apologise to all the people who complained to me about this one 'cuz I've been a bit slow fixing it, sorry about that.

Looks great. Lacks variety. Ow my eyes.

I like the concept and how well everything was put together and how everything works so smoothly.

That being said - it just turns into an almost monotonous roadtrip after a while.

Need more things to kill... and maybe even incorporate a few bends and loops perhaps- and somehow incorporate the steering into that so you have to avoid the walls too.

Also needs an option to turn the blur off... it gets kind of annoying after a while- and yeah, really really hurts the eyes considering we have to concentrate on where we're going staring hard into the screen.

Vibe13 responds:

I agree there needs to be more stuff to kill, which would then work better at slightly slower speeds.

I like the idea of bends and loops, but I'm a bit wary 'cuz I've written games with twisting tunnels in the past and it would make it a lot harder - that being said it's still something worth thinking about, 'cuz the visual effect would be good.

turn off the blur? - maybe turn it down a bit, but I feel the over the top psychadelics are what makes it fun so I don't wanna just get rid of it.

addicting like marijuana

if i had an ipod app exactly like this i wouldnt need any other game, i could spend hours playing this.


Vibe13 responds:

that plan is in motion... however I'm considering leaving the shooting out and focusing on making it a racer/avoider - thats only because I think it would work better with the iPod's tilt-detection steering controls if you're not constantly trying to press the on-screen fire-buttons at the same time...but then again I'm not sure.

It was smooth and fun. Doesn't get old really quick like alot of these types of games do and the speed was intess. NOT TO MENTION THE FREAKING COLORS! I have never been so tempted to do drugs in my life...

Wonderfully refined.

An excellent sequel to a fun game, Vectrix improved on it's predecessor by increasing response times, adding more variety, and an improved soundtrack.

Oh. My. God.

THIS IS SO AWESOME. It's basically a game that I like to play, but this is better. WAY better.
