[Game of the Week] Week #12 – Vectron


Hi folks!

Here we are again with another entry, the twelft, of the [Game of the Week] column and this time the game featured is Vectron for Intellivision!

Developer: Mattel Electronics

Publisher: Mattel Electronics

Platforms: Intellivision

Genre: Action

Release Date: 1982

A chaotic mess. Sure, not a mess like Reactor, a game for which I still find hard to find a sense, but a big chaos. Giving the fact that the sound effects makes you feel like you’re in a bad disco, the game is really hard to understand, at least for me, so it can be either super difficult or so easy that, trying to find a way to play it I miss the fact that is easy as breathing. Or it can also be that I’m a complete idiot of course. Well, Vector *could* have its own sense, it has colourful graphics, a sound that (at least for its age) rush you, but sincerely I ended up pushing random buttons and rotatin the dial on the IV controller. Not a good way to spend a gaming session…

Do you own this game? Have you ever played it? Tell me more in the comments section, let’s discuss!
