3D Lord of the Robots packaging for the GCE/Milton Bradley Vectrex3D Lord of the Robots packaging for the GCE/Milton Bradley VectrexCan man survice on homebrew software alone these days? Thanks to a heads-up from Vectrex News, I found out that "3D Lord of the Robots" is now out of pre-order and available for purchase for $50, with worldwide shipping included. It's available here. After receiving "Spike's Circus" yesterday, I felt it was my "duty" to order this game too, which is among the first 3D specific-games released for the original 3D and new homebrew imagers with color wheels for the Vectrex since the original three games. A 2D version of the game for those without imagers is included on the same cartridge, all within a box with a neat, engraved metal lid. How I'll find time to get around to playing these is a different story, but I'll definitely try. Look for coverage of these Vectrex games in future issues of Armchair Arcade!

The Robot Army has been defeated. The Queen of the Robots, destroyed. Unfortunately, in post-war Antarctica, the remaining robot "drifters" are unaware of the fact that the war is over! They're still fighting it out, tooth and nail!

http://www.vectrex.nl/ is reporting that about 20 copies from the initial allotment of 100 are still available for pre-order and they'll be shipping on October 9th. If that's true, then sales have been quite brisk! I'm glad I pre-ordered mine a while back...
