Vectoroids - Reviews
Vectoroids placed 3rd out of about 30 entries,|
in the "SDL Game Programming Contest"
in January 2002.
"Another incarnation of the classic Asteroids game, Vectoroids' unique
appearance and fast paced gameplay makes it stand out. Vectoroids was
originally implemented as an Agenda VR3 palmtop game, but has since been
transformed into a full color PC game.
Bill Kendrick wins 1 game from Loki Software, 1 book from No Starch Press,
and a 1-year subscription to Linux Journal."
Coverage: Newsforge, Linux Game Tome, LinuxGames.com, SlashDot, Linux Journal, Linux Game Development Center.
Avg. of 6.5 out of 10.
"The graphics of Vectoroids are very good."
Vectoroids is probably the best freeware Asteroids clone available for the PC.
Keeping the gameplay and graphics faithful to Atari's original, Vectoroids is
a compact and stylish retro blast.|

- "Yeah man Vectoroids is MAD fun!" - Mike Faltiss
- "I love this game... [5 out of 5] This game is amazing. Cool graphics,
cool sound and I love the precise controls. This game is fun and once you
start you just can't stop. All it lacks is a real high score table, it just
records your highest score ever anddoesn't save a name or initials with it."
