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.

Gave u a 5 on Vector :(

I thought i saw this from somewhere. I replayed Vector Rush, and must say, this is a def step up. Fixed controls, its fast, responsive, and shooting feels natural. It reminds me of starwars the old Arcade game (where your a x-wing in Atari graphics). Out of Ammo?! WTF?!! i know there's ammo drops but man they feel scarce.

Fullscreen +++ bonus there and you've listened to feedback and made a better game +++ for being a great developer. So you're on the right track and scoring great brownie points.

I can't seem to find any faults in this game. its pretty straight forward.
I guess add more ammo drops, or re-tool the ammo so its a recharge lazer or something. I wanna SHOOT!
lil more enemies, dunno, menacing things flying at you shooting faster (do enemies even score as points? i couldn't tell)
Give us a boss?? i dunno drop the blocks and open up a fury frenzy boss fight just to add feeling of goal lines?
mmm bonuses or upgrades? maybe collect a special attack that allows us to blow up a few columns as an *ohshit* button?

A few directions i can see this going, It could be like the Interweb scenes from Lawnmower man, it could be like computer hacking in SystemShock1, it could be like Rez? keep it up, but the shooting element is a plus.

I'm really with you on all those comments - I was a bit dubious about adding the shooting at first, but I think it works well. The thing is, now you can shoot stuff there needs to be a lot more stuff to shoot, plus maybe some weapon upgrades, and yes more ammo!

I'm working on some different stuff at the moment, but I'll return to this kinda game soon 'cuz I can see a lot of potential. What I'm really looking forward to is Adobe's promise of releasing a hardware 3D flash-player this year - with that kinda power to play with I reckon I could really make this game sing.

oh yeah, you do get points for shooting stuff - it's not very clear, but you get more points when your going faster, so after the final turbo shooting stuff is worth a lot more than collecting bonuses.

Vibe13 responds:

well I like these kinda games so I wanna do more and keep on trying new stuff out - I mean with this version I started moving it towards being a shooter and I wasn't even sure that was gonna work so I wanted to throw it up to get some feedback before I spent too much time going down a possible dead-end.

sorry decent game but..

it's just a remake of vector rush


Vibe13 responds:

sure, it's vector rush 2, I only changed the name on a whim, but it was always essentially a sequel to my last game.

Fun

This reminds me of the movie Hackers. Love the music.


Vibe13 responds:

I think I met some guys working on the graphics for that movie back in the 90's when I was at college - I may even have tried to convince them to give me a job.
