To say the very least, I was very disappointed at Vecmania for many reasons. First off, 3 out of the 8 games are rehash labeled "Special Editions". I mean come on, do we really need another Rockaroid? The 3 brand new games (without counting the demos, of course) are Repulse, Star Fire, and Birds of Prey. Repulse is way to hard and pretty much slow and boring. It's impossible to kill the enemy ship and fire a bullet into the hole, at the same time. And to top that off, there's some annoying ship that comes out of the circle and flys right into you! Next we have Star Fire, the game I was waiting for after playing the demo. However, the game is too hard for its own good. Great graphics and sound, but the game is just damn to hard (Well at least with your keyboard). But overall, it's still a really good game. And finally we have Birds of Prey. This game has great graphics and sound, but like with Star Fire, the game is too hard and doesn't portion it's difficulty in later levels. Nonetheless, I think BoP is overall a fun and challenging game. And next we have...oh wait I forgot that's all the new games.
I think this collection could of been really good if only Donzilla finished Disc Duel, which is amazing and innovative. Abyss also looked great, but unfortunately we just have the unfinished version. I mean what was he doing all this time when he kept delaying the collection!? I just pray he makes a final version of Disc Duel!
Overall I'd definetly buy this game if I had a Vectrex, even just for novelty. But I am very dissappointed, especially since how much potential this game had.
And as for future Vectrex games to come, I wish someone would stop re-doing classics and make a brand-new retro game. The Vec also needs a good adventure game, in the tradition of DArk ToWer.
