Vectoroids - Reviews


aboutfeaturesscreenshotsreviewsrequirementsdownload
Award-Winner!
Vectoroids placed 3rd out of about 30 entries,
in the "SDL Game Programming Contest"
in January 2002.

Contest Results: 438.5 points.

"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."

Avg. of 6.5 out of 10.
"The graphics of Vectoroids are very good."

FreeStyle Review
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.

Zaurus Free Software of the Month
Vectoroids for the Zaurus is a direct port of the award-winning desktop Vectoroids game. Maneuver your ship through a field of asteroids, and shoot your photons at them to break them into smaller and smaller pieces.

Sharp Zaurus Newsletter - April 2003

  • "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." - Handango Review of Zaurus version

  • "Great job on Vectriods for the [Zaurus]!!!" [Followed by requests for Defender: (done!) and Star Castle: (done!)] - Todd MacDonald
