TeleMatch (Jul, 1983)
Nach dem zweifelhaften Genuß der in diesem Test vorgestellten zweiten Tron-Cassette könnte man Vectron in dieselbe Schublade packen, obgleich immerhin ein wenig mehr Logik im Spiel ist. Eine Notwendigkeit, angesichts so vieler anderer Cassetten für dieses System, Vectron für teures Geld zu erstehen, besteht nicht.
Uniqueness is a rare commodity in the gaming industry. Many games, even great ones such as Lady Bug for the ColecoVision and K.C. Munchkin for the Odyssey2, are simply expansions of a formerly explored theme (mazes, like in Pac-Man). Vectron has some of the makings of a standard 2D shooter (you aim at stuff and fire), but its control technique and energy base-building objective makes it different from just about anything on the market. Unfortunately, it is not much fun.

The Intellivision control disc provides 16 degrees of control, but I still found it hard to aim my shots. Using the side buttons to position your "energy box" is touchy and clumsy. There's a lot happening on the screen at a given time, and completing a wave feels more like an accident than an accomplishment. I'm all for originality, but Vectron needs more fun and less "huh?"
