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.

i remember this game!

vector rush was fantastic! i honestly didn't think the shooting part of this game would be any fun because i liked rush so much. But i know now that the shooting part was all that rush was missing. i love it! this game is perfect to play when over tired!

you've already made a game i thought couldn't get any better and you made it better. THANK YOU!

Vibe13 responds:

thanks for the positive response.

I've started to think that there's really 2 different games at the heart of vector-rush and vectrix - the first one being an avoider game and the second a shooter. I could develop it further in both of those directions, but probably not in the same game.

I like both types of game so I'm thinking about forking the development off into 2 different streams. I'll probably focus on the shooter first though 'cuz I don't think I got the balance quite right in this one: as soon as Adobe's 3D flash-player is distributed I can ramp up the number of enemies, which is what it really needs (as some reviewers have pointed out).

Question

How do you do turbo, it says on the achievements.

Is there certain steps to do it ?


Vibe13 responds:

you just stay alive long enough for the turbos to take effect: you get a turbo about once every 20 seconds or so until you're at full speed.

Really awesome game, just one thing...

I can't find the songs' names when I go to the website you gave us. (Psy Trance Brazil) There are always more songs there, and those are not the ones I listen in your game, I love Psy Trance, tell us the names of the songs which plays during the game, the menu song and the race song. Thanks! 5/5 & 10/10


Vibe13 responds:

the menu music is "Bixo Papaum" from the "Hinnergy Respire" album.
the in-game music is "Lisergic Sounds..." from the "Pure Energy Promo 2009" album.

Awesome sequel!

Quite wonderful! You were able to merge the two games together very well! Though, it is challenging for those playing for the first time because of the initial speed being more than moderately fast. Keep up with the good work! Love these retro games!
