Lightpen is just what the title says: a light pen peripheral for Vectrex. It is intended for use with the included Art Master cartridge. While it is mainly a drawing utility (making sketches and animations), the third option Connect is intended for playing: the artist draws a sketch just as usual, but with a button press it is converted to unconnected dots. Then the other players are shown the picture and has to guess what it is. Because there is no in-game way to keep score, the number of players is unrestricted.
