Vector Vaults is a new arcade game for the Amstrad CPC. It is based on vector graphics with 25 frames per seconds and also features multi dimensional and pixel precise scrolling. You have to pilot your ship through nine levels. The game was written with CPCtelera, SDCC and assembler.
In the game you play Samuel, who is flying a virtual avatar shaped like a ship which has to break through different security levels. You control the ship with the keyboard (O, P, Q, A and SPACE) or joystick. Here is a short video showing the gameplay of Vector Vaults:

Vector Vaults is an original and addictive fast retro arcade game exclusive for the Amstrad CPC that will test your pilot skills. It's the first game of the Hidden History Saga and upon completion will give you a secret code to use in Light Lands (the next entry in the series). Game play is based upon vector graphics (100% spriteless) with 25 frames per second, multi directional, variable speed, pixel precise scroll (may be the first game to do so on the CPC?). Physics on ship and camera are fine tunned to provide natural and smooth handling throughout the nine stages where gameplay is the main focus. Vector Vaults pays homage to the Vectrex video game console. More info at http://albertoven.com/2016/09/26/vect...
