Vectrex Stuff I am working on

GauzeSoft games


Something I started working on over Xmas 2016, this is all I have so far. Based on a 2600 game.

Update Jan 19 2018

Changed game name to non-Copyright infringing. Added intro splash screen w/ sound, some minor code changes.
Beta Bin

Update, June 1, '17

First Beta, feature complete but things might/will change with gameplay and other stuff. CLICK HERE
Playable but unfun, unpolished alpha version. Has enemies, scoring, and the game can end, and not much else!

Spudster's Revenge

Finally released in March 2017!! First 14 copies with color cover, printed label
and clamshell case. Only available as trade to developers.
Molly and Spud return in this adaptation of the most controversial
Atari 2600 title ever: Custer's Revenge.
(I do not condone the content of this game)
You can order it here: GauzeSoft Shop
The Freeware version without Easter Eggs is available here

Posers Must Die! -or- Spike's Slam Pit

ABANDONWARE! Not worked on since 2002 or so. Spike is the oldest, toughest punk in town and he's ready to do what it
takes to clean up the scene! (Hey, I had to make something up)
Pre-Alpha binary: reactor.bin

first page update in 12 years, 7 months, 27 days!

Since that time many things have changed, for example the AS09 compiler now runs on linux instead of just DOS.
That renders many of the tools I wrote/offered here to code on Linux using as6809 Frankenstein Assembler obsolete.
One that isn't (I guess) is the port I did of Chris Salomon's Vecsound utility to convert Atari .YM music files to Vectrex ASM. here it is.

Belgian based Kristof Tuts is with the release of Vector Pilot, one of the most respected Vectrex homebrew authors ever. Since he first announcing he was going to release a game in 2001 he has released 2 titles, he is a perfectionist with the highest standards and it shows.

The Definitive Guide to Vectrex Collecting is a site that tries to be as comprehensive as possible to all released vectrex items, and it's almost certainly the best site to look for what exists and what variations of a release exist.
