Several vector classic remakes by 2011-11-05 22:07:02

No, no Asteroids or anything, as this guy went for the more obscure ones, but who cares?

tardis.dk/wordpress

He did Omega Race (two versions!), Rip Off, Zektor, Space Fury, and Star Castle, and he's working on Black Widow too

I've only played Space Fury so far, and holy CRAP that's addicting! You don't dock as often as with the original (after every three waves), but you get an extra ship shell, as well as there being four alien entities that appear and mock you throughout the game, among a few other little differences.

He also remade several Sprectrum ZX games as well but I'm not familiar with them.

Oy, I take back the Asteroids comment, as I just found out that Jack’o'Roid is a remake of it, just done with a Halloween theme! Kind of borderline imitation vector though, but the asteroids are pumpkins, there's a jack-o-lantern backdrop, and the saucers are a witch and a skull. Neat soundclips too!

Hey, it's been a couple of months since this post, but I just saw I had some visits from this page so I'm posting an update here.

First of all - thanks for the post.

I haven't been programming as much as I'd prefer lately, but my plan is to get Black Widow finished this year, and although I haven't touched it in ages I think it looks pretty good already, so I hope it's going to be a good game. But the original already is, so I'll do my best to match that.

Take care everyone.

/S

Oh good! At first I was going "geez, is this guy stalking me?"

Just give me Space Fury and Major Havoc and I'll be happy.

Try his Space Fury then! I prefer it over the original

I think the aliens voice should be more sinister.

Yeah I thought so too, but the rest of it's pretty good though.
