Hacked Vectrex shows colour and Arcade Jason shows it looking good!


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. It was a system that was developed by Western Technologies/Smith Engineering in 1982, and unlike most systems, this little beauty had an integrated vector monitor which displays vector graphics with  optional plastic screen overlays, to simulate colour and designs!


Thankfully with the talent and hard work of Arcade Jason he has shown a Hacked Vectrex showing colour without using an overlay! Which means games such as Mine Storm, Scramble, Repulse and even 3D Pole Position are shown with colour, without an overlay as long as you have a colour Vectrex monitor!
