Online Flash Game 'Bloxorz' Ported To The MB Vectrex

Vectrex-BloxorzWho here hasn't spent hours on the various portals offering countless flash games? Well now you can combine your love of these addictive titles and retro gaming thanks to an all new MB Vectrex homebrew release. One retro-developer recently tasked himself with porting Bloxorz to the vector display-based video game console and needless to say, the results are fantastic.

If you're yet to play Bloxorz online, this free to play title created by Damien Clarke in 2007 has since become a popular choice on the likes of MiniClip and many other game portals out there. Taking control of a 2 by 1 cuboid, you must roll this 3D shape around the playing field in an attempt to reach the goal. This is easier said than done as not only is the goal limited to a 1 by 1 space, but you must refrain from accidentaly rolling our block-protagonist off the stage and into the dark depths below.

As you'd expect Bloxorz on the Vectrex is as equally engaging as it is on our home computers. While it may lack the added detail modern technology can offer, the wireframe visuals of this block rolling adventure add more depth to the isometric puzzle. This recent creation for the Vectrex was put together by Frank Buss and was presented at RetroChallenge 2013 in Germany. As of speaking the Vectrex port only features the first three levels, however, Buss is hoping to press on and include all of the game's missing stages.

Those hoping to try out this new offering on a Vectrex flash cartridge or emulator will be pleased to know a downloadable demo ROM has been released via Buss's website.

This is neat that they could put this game on the Vectrex. It makes me want to find the console even more. :)
