THE VECTREX IS BACK, and this time it's personal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARDIFF, Wales - November 1, 2012 /Rantmedia/ - Rantmedia Games, a top developer and publisher of retro mobile games, is pleased to announce Vectrex Regeneration for Apple iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.    Vectrex Regeneration is the only authentic Vectrex experience on iOS and will allow gamers to play every Vectrex title which came out with the machine, plus new ones still being developed.  However, until the App launches in late November, dust off those consoles, blow out your cartridges and boot them up one last time. 

Vectrex Regeneration is a faithful recreation of the original Vectrex console, launching just as it approaches its 30th anniversary.  A truly unique game machine Vectrex included a built-in controller and a cartridge port for its 29 games.  It was released in November 1982 and unlike other video game consoles, which connected to televisions, it was the only one that had an integrated monitor which displayed vector graphics.  People all over the world will take out their Vectrex units for International Play Your Vectrex Day today, more details can be found here.

Rantmedia Games' new App, Vectrex Regeneration, brings players into their own virtual 1980's room with a Vectrex console ready to play.  Just like the original Vectrex, the App comes with Minestorm, though every timeless Vectrex title published will eventually be available for purchase.  At launch 18 titles will be ready with the rest of the original 29 coming quickly afterwards.  The Vectrex was so beloved by its community that new developers have continued to create games for the system.  Those games will, for the first time ever, be available on iOS so anyone can play the newest titles.
