About This Game

Based on John Conway's "Game of Life" cellular automaton, Vectrix is a techno dual-stick shooter that harkens back to arcade cabinets and pockets full of quarters.

Face a nearly unlimited difficulty curve as you blast away at chaotic and erratic cells whose behavior is mathematically unpredictable in most cases! Blasting cells causes others to wilt away if you're lucky, but can also cause massive explosions of new cells! Feel the upbeat rhythm energize you as you connect the shapes to unlock cross-shots, tri-shots and T-shots at enemies! Beware of new cell formations as the colors get hotter and the music gets more intense! Race to the top of the leaderboard and beat developer high scores. Challenge your friends! Are you the best cell eradicator in town? Leave your initials to prove it!
