So you can see why I was just that little bit excited when I saw Stuck In Attic's upcoming game of ' Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure ''; a game that looks so bloody good, it's at the top of my most wanted list.

Hera Primera - Juno First clone on the Vectrex looks awesome!

C64 version ( Juno First )

I have a bit of a soft spot for the Vectrex ever since I played one some years ago at the GEEK event in Margate, so you can probably see why I'm just that little bit excited for Peiselulli's latest shoot em up ' Hela Primera ', that is in development for the Vectrex. Now if you've ever played Juno First by Konami in 1983 then you know what to expect with Hela Primera, as this rather cool blaster is actually a clone of that classic game. It has all the vertical-scrolling, enemy waves and blasting action intact, and damn does it look seriously good on the Vectrex.
